Eco Grind

Eco Grind - Mill Media

At FFF Australia we commission the manufacture, production and fabrication of equipment, products or components to any design and specification, and we’ve been providing Australian businesses access to a global supply chain of nearly 800 providers, for over 20 years. And now, our Mineral Processing group is utilising our expertise and global network to offer grinding media that is providing our customers with significant benefits.

As a socially responsible organisation FFF is undertaking environmental measures and we offer several of these benefits to our customers too.  One of which we refer to as our Eco Grind media.

Why choose Eco Grind?

Our cast media exclusively uses swarf collected during the machining of the high-quality forged steel components.  It is then smelted down to produce superior quality Eco Grind ball media. Offering media up to 150mm in diameter and chrome content as high as 28%, the FFF cast Eco Grind media is significantly tougher and offers fewer breakages and higher wear abrasion resistance, which leads to operational efficiencies and lower costs for the user.

Additionally, by sourcing steel from products like cars and machines that have reached the end of their service life, they are recycled to create forged ball media. During this rigorous process, the molten steel is vacuum degassed to reduce the hydrogen content and produce a superior grinding ball media in a process usually reserved for critical mechanical parts and structural steels. Or as we call it – Eco Grind.

By utilising FFF’s Eco Grind media not only can you be assured of exceptional performance, but you will be helping to protect our environment.

The FFF cast and forged Eco Grind media is suitable for use throughout Australia, across a wide range of industry verticals, to support metallurgical extraction processes for Gold, Silver, Copper, Lithium, Alumina and much more.

Our Partners

Appointed as the Australian sales, distribution & support representatives by international partners who specialise in the design, manufacture, and supply of AG, SAG, ROD, and BALL Mill components & liners, FFF produces the Eco Grind media through several manufacturing partners in Europe, which removes any anti-dumping Australian import tariffs.
