The Attractive Features of Alumina Ball

Alumina ball is produced as an alternative of natural pebble for the ball mill grinding medium. Unlike natural pebble grinding medium, alumina grinding ball is known to have better performance when it comes to resisting wear and corrosion. In addition to that, they tend to have higher mechanical strength and density as well.

The high density and hardness of alumina ball allow the increase in the loading of ball mill. These balls are uniform in shape and compact, the chances of collision increased and the efficiency in grinding is increased as well. One of the best things about the alumina grinding ball is it can guarantee less contamination to raw materials and keep their chemical composition at stable levels. This is the reason why the alumina grinding ball has been widely used in glaze grinding. In fact, it is the key to assuring quality of the production of glaze.

The best qualities of alumina ball are it is cost effective, electricity saving and quick grinding. Because of this, it is widely preferred and chosen by many as the most ideal grinding media. A lot of enterprises today are using them. The good news is there are many suppliers of these balls from all over the world. It is very important though to choose the right supplier as not all of them are the same.

The best suppliers are those that can offer you with affordable alumina balls and can provide you with great discounts as well especially if you have decided to purchase them in larger quantities. They should also be known manufacturers and suppliers of quality alumina balls.

Some people think that alumina ball and ceramic ball are the same when in fact they are not. However, they are equally important and should be of good quality to be able to serve their purposes best. Inert alumina ball is a type of alumina grinding ball that is also popularly used in industries such as chemical, petrochemical, fertilizer and natural gas. They are widely used also in environment protection. You might ask what are the purposes or functions of this type of alumina ball. Well, it works as a covering and support material for catalyst in packing for towers and reactors. Its main role is to improve the distribution of gas and liquid, holding and protecting activated catalyst with lower strength.

It also has stronger resistance to high pressure and temperature, lower ratio of the moisture absorption and possesses more stabilized chemical properties. This type of Ceramic ball is capable of enduring the corrosion of alkali, acid and organic solvent. Aside from that, it can bear also the rapid transitions of temperature during operation. As a matter of fact, its major function is to accelerate gas or liquid distribution while at the same time protecting or supporting the active catalyst that especially has the relatively lower mechanical strength.

If you need to use alumina ball for your industry, you will definitely find it beneficial because of their above given qualities.


This type of Ceramic ball is capable of enduring the corrosion of alkali, acid and organic solvent. Jxkelley is ISO 9001:2008 registered manufacturer of Ceramic balls, Tower packing, Environmental protection products and Alumina grinding media.
