Industrial Media: Balls, Beads, Cylinders, Satellites, Tetrahedrons, Triangles, Angle Cut, Cones, Wedges, Ellipses, Pyramids, Tristars, and more.
ALMA International imports, distributes, and manufactures industrial media of all sizes and types for a wide variety of uses. We partner with our manufacturers to provide economy, average, high and superior quality media so that the customer has many options for choosing the optimum media for each application. ALMA has a laboratory which provides independent testing in addition to the manufacturers’ tests. Preshipment samples are provided when requested.
Ceramic, both bauxite and non-bauxite, as well as plastic proppants in various sizes, densities and pressure ratings for shallow and deep well fracturing.
Ceramic beads specifically designed for use in cracking towers. Ceramic Media specifically designed to speed up the cracking reaction: zeolite, aluminum hydrosilicate, bauxite and silica-alumina ceramic.
Resins for Cleaning/
Plastic media engineered for cleaning and demineralizing steam used in power plants.
Plastic, glass and ceramic beads for lubricating drills in horizontal drilling.
Media used for particle size reduction in mills such as ball, attritor, small media, shaker, vibratory, rod, vertical, horizontal, and continuous. This media is available in a full array of all sizes, all materials, all shapes.
Heat Exchange Media:
Media with excellent thermal conductivity for use in heat exchangers, RTO thermal oxidizers and catalytic oxidizers.
Fused aluminosilicate beads which make ideal foundry sand due to its precision casting. These beads have high dimensional accuracy by controlling the size. They are superior in spherical shape, low thermal expansion, and surface area.
Wide range of shapes and materials such as balls, beads, grit, cylinders, cubes, tetrahedrons, triangles, corn cob, shells, wood, powders.
Ceramic, Glass, Steel and Polymer balls that are high precision used as spacers and other applications requiring a high degree of sphericity and monosizing.
Glass beads, glitter and nuggets in clear and over 50 colors including pearlescent. Translucent and metallic finishes available for use in dry and wet environments.
Industrial media is available in a wide range of materials: alumina oxide of various concentrations, zirconia toughened alumina, zirconia oxide stabilized with magnesium, cerium, yttria or silica, bauxite and non-bauxite clay, magnesium silica, sand, silicon carbide, tungsten carbide, carbon/stainless/chrome steel, pebbles, plastics such as polystyrene, polyamide, and polyurethane.
