About ActOn Agro Media

Maizorb grains are highly absorbent, making this material and excellent media for drying parts after a wet process. Usually the Maizorb is loaded into a vibratory/ rotary dryer and is heated by the finishing machine heating elements. The wet components are loaded in the dryer’s work chamber and tumbled in the heated Maizorb. The corn cob acts as an absorbent and removes any moisture from the parts.

Walnut shell is manufactured out of crushed walnut shells. This media is great for shot blasting and mass finishing applications. The walnut shell is hard and fibrous and are known as ‘soft abrasive’. Being extremely durable, walnut shells are used for the cleaning and polishing of heat-treated components, jewelery, surgical components, watches, etc.
