The BM-400 Mixer/Mill is a high-energy ball mill that grinds using figure-8 motion. Ideal for rocks, minerals, pharma, plant & animal matter.
Grinds multiple samples in the 0.2 - 10 g range or mixes up to 50 mL of material per clamp Flexible for different sample types and sizes.
Large variety of Grinding and Mixing vials available. Media and vial sizes to cover all analytical needs.
Steel housing protects the clamp mechanism and it has a rugged construction Ensures a long life of heavy work.
The BM-400 Mixer/Mill (formerly SPEX SamplePrep 8000M Mixer/Mill) is a high-energy ball mill that grinds up to 0.2 – 10 grams of dry, brittle samples. The vial, which contains a sample and one or more balls, is shaken in a complex motion that combines back-and-forth swings with short lateral movements, each end of the vial describing a figure-8. The clamp’s motion develops strong G-forces in the vial, to pulverise the toughest rocks, slags and ceramics.
Grinding and mixing vials are available in: hardened steel, stainless steel, tungsten carbide, alumina ceramic, zirconia ceramic, silicon nitride, agate, polystyrene, methacrylate, and polycarbonate. CE Approved.
