Grinding Beads for the Talboys High Throughput Homogenizer

Troemner / Talboys laboratory equipment will soon be sold under the Ohaus brand (both companies are owned by Mettler Toledo). During this transitional period, it is possible that if you purchase a Troemner item, you receive the item with Ohaus branding. Please rest assured that it is the exact same item - even manufactured in the same facility by the same people using the same parts - with only cosmetic changes.

Follow this general guideline when purchasing grinding media:

  • Larger or denser media is more effective at homogenizing tougher or larger samples.
  • Smaller media is more efficient at homogenizing smaller samples.

There are three types of grinding media available for the Talboys High Throughput Homogenizer:

  • Stainless steel balls.  These are available in 5/32, 5/16" and 3/8".  These grinding balls are made of 440C stainless steel which allows them to be retrieved with a magnet while making them resistant to tarnishing. Grinding balls are treated to remove residual oils and contaminants prior to packaging.  Sold in a bottle of 1000 (3/8" and 5/16") or 5000 (5/32") beads.
  • Zirconium beads.  These are available as 200µm beads and come either acid-washed, nuclease-free, or low-protein.  Sold in a bottle with 250g of beads.
  • Glass / Silica beads.  These are available in 400µm or 800µm sizes and come either acid-washed, nuclease-free, or low-protein.  Sold in a bottle with 200g of beads.
