[Source] Granulation beads


Can anyone suggest a good source for granulation beads?

Travis Searle


If you are referring to the tiny balls used for granulation:

SPM, Armonk, NY
or 914-698-5353

assuming they still exist


Hi Travis,

I actually specialize in granulation and invented a machine to create
the granules for me. Currently, I can make them in four sizes though
I have only tried this with 18K (as it is all I use). I think it
would work for silver quite well, but I’m not sure about 22kt or
higher melting temp alloys. I’ve never made them commercially
available before, but have toyed with the notion. So, if you don’t
have any luck with SPM, send me an email at Erich at [ErichCDesigns
dot com] with what you are looking for and I will see if I can put it
together for you.
