Making Paint

From 2005. This is paint making equipment. Not something many people have seen before unless you are in the business. So for the fun of it. The top picture is a from then business end of a twin shaft high speed disperser. Four special blades that induce high shear into the batch of resin and pigment until it is in a smooth paste ready for further additions of resins and additives to create a finished product.
This is a basket mill which also carries out a similar dispersion process but is reserved for more difficult to grind materials. The cylinder is filled with Zirconium Oxide beads and is normally immersed in the paint and run until the product is smooth and ready for finishing.
