GRINDING / MIXINGThe grinding of materials is crucial to producing consistent ceramic bodies & glazes. Laboratory “Pot Mills” have been used for many years in the lab for analysing small sample volumes of incoming materials. E.J.PAYNE CERAMIC have supplied standard jar mills all over the world, but more recently have designed and developed specialist roller mills for other purposes.
Planetary Mills are offered as a “Fast” Mill for shortened grinding times of frits & glazes, and the research models of these units will provide a final particle size of down to less than 1 micron.
Various laboratory mixers, from slow speed overhead stirrers to high speed homogenisers are listed below.
