Advantages of Zirconia Grinding Media

·        Ultra low wear loss as a result of the transformation-toughening mechanism unique to the yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) material system.

·        Higher grinding efficiency and reduced grinding time due to zirconia’s higher density (compared with alumina and glass).

·        Most durable grinding material, reducing operational cost in the long run.  Wear rate substantially lower than Al2O3, CeO2-ZrO2, and MgO-ZrO2 grinding media.

·        Suitable for high velocity operations and wet grinding operations.

Applications of Zirconia Grinding Media

·        Iron- and chrome-based magnetic materials (for audio/video recording tapes) and other magnetic materials.

·        Electronic-grade ceramics (ferroelectric, piezoelectric, dielectric, capacitors, sensors, etc.), advanced structural ceramics, and other ceramic ingredients.

·        Nanostructured and superfine powders.

·        Toner materials for photocopiers and laser printers.

·        Inks, dyes, paint, and other pigments.

·        Pharmaceutical, food, chemical, and textile applications.

·        Lab milling operations demanding minimized contamination from milling media.

Criteria in Selecting Size of Zirconia Grinding Media

·        Larger-sized media are more efficient in breaking up large particles.

·        Smaller media are more efficient in milling smaller particles because of higher effective contact area.

·        Larger media sizes are favored in many conventional ball mills.  Smaller sizes are more appropriate for attritors.  For example, 5mm media are used in many attrition mill applications, whereas 10-15 mm may be a good start for a lab ball mill.  For small-media mills, media sizes are typically smaller than 2 mm.

·        Another important criterion in selecting media size is the gap size between stirring arms and mill walls.  Media size should be significantly smaller than the gap size to prevent jamming.
