Description

Retsch PM100 Grinding Station

Planetary Ball Mills are used wherever the highest degree of fineness is required. In addition to well-proven mixing and size reduction processes, these mills also meet all technical requirements for colloidal grinding and provide the energy input necessary for mechanical alloying. The extremely high centrifugal forces of a planetary ball mill result in very high pulverization energy and therefore short grinding times.

Product Advantages

  • powerful and quick grinding down to nano range
  • reproducible results due to energy and speed control
  • suitable for long-term trials
  • 2 different grinding modes (dry and wet)
  • optional pressure and temperature measuring system PM GrindControl
  • measurement of energy input
  • wide range of materials for contamination free grinding
  • Safety Slider for safe operation
  • perfect stability on lab bench thanks to FFCS technology
  • innovative counter weight and imbalance sensor for unsupervised operation
  • comfortable parameter setting via display and ergonomic 1-button operation
  • automatic grinding chamber ventilation
  • 10 SOPs can be stored
  • programmable starting time
  • power failure backup ensures storage of remaining grinding time
  • jars with O-type sealing for safe operation, pressure tight
