Do you know the consumption rate of your grinding charge?

This is the starting point to test the working conditions of your mill and find out how to improve them.

Do you know the current composition of your grinding charge?

Customized grinding charges that suit your grinding conditions may reduce production costs. For refining a serigraphic paste under 30 micron, a customized grinding charge may reduce the grinding cycle by about 30%.

Have you ever considered the possibility of adopting alumina low-contamination grinding media?

One of our production lines can fulfil this requirement. Please, contact us for more details.

Cheap grinding media do not turn into a saving of money.


By analysing possible grinding conditions, Industrie Bitossi developed specific grinding media typologies, specifically formutaled to reduce, case by case, grinding media consumption rate.

Do you know that by using an Alubit 90 lining, instead of a rubber one, you can considerably reduce the consumption of your grinding media?

Did you know that in an intermittent wet mill, grinding media must always be covered by slurry?

A constant granulometric curve positively influences the quality of the final product.

Do you know how to get it?

Do you know the importance of checking periodically the wear of lining plugs?

Keeping the plug edge at the same level of the internal lining helps extending the lifetime of your lining.

Do you know any other ways to extend the lifetime of an Alubit 90 lining?

Please contact us for more details.

Our research, carried out to suggest the most suitable media sizes for the grinding charge, has allowed to extend lining lifetime and reduce grinding media consumption.


As this class of Mills is among the most common, or it may be even the biggest for number of installed machines in the ceramic plants, it looks right to start from here.

In addition, among the suggested parameters, although with some restrictions, some of them can also be used for wet continuous mills and dry continuous and discontinuous mills.



By entering the information required, you will immediately get a preliminary check-up of the milling conditions in your plant. Available on, this on line service will allow you to identify the best setup for the grinding department, thus enhancing the productivity and performance of your mills and, as a consequence, reducing your overall industrial costs. You must subscribe in order to access advanced features and get directly in touch with Industrie Bitossi technical team.

Managing a grinding plant is far from simple: unsteady performance, low productivity and high energy consumption are frequently occurring problems.

For more than 50 years Industrie Bitossi has been providing alumina grinding media, technical assistance and know-how to its customers located in over 60 countries around the world.

Through the development of innovative grinding charges, aimed to fully optimize the out put and the overall performance of milling department, Industrie Bitossi has always been a step ahead of others, playing a leading role in the milling process of ceramic body, glazes and materials.

1960: First in Europe to introduce alumina linings and grinding media at high density (Alubit 90) to replace silica stones in the glaze grinding with an increase of productivity up to 100%

1970: First to introduce alumina grinding media at high density (Alubit 90) for single firing body grinding to replace silica stones
