What is the difference between horizontal and vertical bead mill? Bead mill is a kind of super - fine grinding equipment for wet process, now it is widely used in ink, pigment dispersing and grinding. There are different kinds of bead mills, from the installation form, it can be divided into vertical and horizontal. What is the difference between them?
- Horizontal Bead Mill
Bead mill is also called sand mill. Horizontal bead mill is a kind of high efficiency wet ultrafine grinding and dispersing machine widely used in coating, dye, paint, ink, medicine, ferrite, photosensitive film, pesticide, papermaking and cosmetics industries. According to the different structure, horizontal bead mill can be divided into ordinary horizontal bead mill, wheelpin horizontal bead mill, tooth disc horizontal bead mill and turbo horizontal bead mill!
Horizontal bead mill is a kind of horizontal wet continuous ultrafine particle dispersing machine. Send the pre-stirred raw material to grinding chamber, the chamber is filled with appropriate amount of grinding media, such as glass beads. Through dispersing blades in high-speed rotation, the grinding media was given with enough momentum, to produce shear force by collision with the dispersed particles, to achieve the effect of dispersing, then through the special separation device, discharged the material and grinding media separately.
Horizontal conical bead mill is characterized by advanced design, closed continuity of production, uniform grinding fineness, good quality, high production efficiency, double mechanical seal, dual protection, zero leakage, a new dynamic separation mechanism, discharge quicker. It is widely used in paint, dye, printing ink, sensitive material, medicine and other industries. Horizontal bead mill is especially suitable for dispersing and grinding products with high viscosity and fine particle size.Horizontal bead mill is a kind of horizontal wet continuous ultrafine particle dispersing machine Send the pre-stirred raw material to grinding chamber the continuous ultrafine particle dispersing machine.

- Vertical Bead mill
The characteristics of vertical bead mill are that the raw materials are pressed from the bottom to the top and discharged on the top, all the raw materials sent into the grinding chamber are completely ground, so the most complete grinding effect can be achieved. Since it is grinding in the fully closed grinding chamber, so there is no solvent volatilization air pollution problem, to ensure the physical and mental health of staff. The vertical integral design integrates the bead mill host, feeding pump and electrical control box as a whole, so that the machinery does not take up space, easy to operate. The vertical bead mill is one of the equipments that work continuously without any interruption, and has high speed and high efficiency. Vertical bead mill is very good at dispersing and grinding high viscosity materials, and make the particle size of materials to very fine requirements. It is suitable for grinding and manufacturing of medium and high viscosity liquid materials such as paint coating, ink, pigment dye, medicine, cosmetics, food, electronic materials, etc.
1）Difficulty of manufacturing. The vertical sand mill avoids the sealing problem, so it is easier to
manufacture and the cost is lower.
2）Fineness of grinding. A horizontal bead mill can well overcome the influence of gravity on the medium, so it has a better grinding effect and can meet the requirements of the product for fineness.
3）Material. Vertical bead mill generally uses ordinary materials, while the materials used in horizontal
bead mill must be more precise materials, which are much better. Therefore, the price of the general horizontal bead mill is much more expensive than that of the vertical bead mill. The above are the differences between horizontal and vertical bead mills. Users should choose the bead mill according to their needs.
