  • Cole-Parmer BM-450 Mixer/Mill high intensity ball mill single vial

    Key Features

    • 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.

Applications include: Mechanical alloying, slurry grinding, blending powders and mixing emulsions.

Typical samples include: Rocks, Minerals, Sand, Cement, Slag, Ceramics, Catalyst Supports, Glass, Pharmaceuticals, Plant and Animal Tissues, Cannabis, Seeds, Paints and Ink.
