This lab facility has the capability of performing product dispersion and bead mill demonstrations for a wide-variety of markets—ranging from inks and coatings to battery development, cosmetics, food and pharma, as well as emerging markets such as 3D print media and CBD health applications.

“This state-of the art facility is extremely advantageous for customers to have hands-on demonstrations, training, and trials while utilising our facility and expertise to find solutions to the challenges they face for upcoming projects,” says Andreas Stummer, dispersion business line manager for BYK-Gardner USA.

The development and design team then comes with innovative ideas and long-term experience in the mixing, dispersing, and grinding technology. Due to the synergies with BYK Additives the team can not only provide solutions to the best dispersing and milling equipment choices but also leverage the additives knowledge of other staff.

This lab can evaluate different types of laboratory dissolvers and milling tools as well as measuring the results such as final particle size, particle size distribution, viscosity, and other physical and optical properties of a product.

Benefits and Capabilities:

  • Demonstrations of product performance, flexibility and accessories through a variety of milling techniques
  • Scale-up capability for customers interested in large equipment
  • Leverage synergies between our instrument and additive business
  • Showroom with the latest milling and dispersing equipment

“We would be pleased to show you the impressive work section of our dispersers, mixers, stirrers, bead mills, and basket mills for dispersing, mixing, stirring, homogenizing and fine grinding up to the nanoscale. Our skilled engineers are available at any time for personal consultations,” says Stummer.
