Basket mills are wet grinders consisting of an agitator disc connected to a vertical shaft. They work by immersing the agitator disc into a pigment or extender paste. Basket assembly is filled with high density milling beads, and the external part contains a slotted sieve which allows pigment paste to pass but not the milling beads. Basket mills are designed such that vacuum created by rotating disc, causes the paste to enter the basket from the upper surface. In addition to basic concept, some basket mill producers have different designs that impart extra features.
