“Grinding and Dispersing with Stirred Media Mills”
27th February – 01st March 2023 (English)
The seminar on “Grinding and Dispersing with Stirred Media Mills” has been organised annually by the Institute for Particle Technology at the Technical University of Braunschweig since October 1999. Research in the field of stirred media mills began in Braunschweig as early as 1978 and is still one of the main areas of research at the Institute for Particle Technology today. Although the first stirred media mills were developed as early as the 1950s, their importance continues to grow. In various branches of industry, such as the production of paints and varnishes, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, agrochemicals as well as the ceramics and fillers industry, this technology is used for production. Specific examples of ultra-fine comminution include the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients to improve bioavailability, the production of particle suspensions for intelligent surface coatings and composite materials or applications in semiconductor technology.
