Mill construction, i.e. in ball mills and dry mills
SSiC, SiSiC, Si3N4 and ZrO2
high wear resistance due to high strength and hardness
high chemical corrosion resistance
low density, i.e. small mass moment of inertia
no metal impurities
In food and drug industries it is most important that no impurities arise from the tools during the milling process; therefore it is preferential to use ceramic mills, with excellent wear and corrosion resistance properties.
