High-energy Dual Ball Mill for a wide range of Applications and Techniques including XRF and XRD.
Dual Clamps Enable multiple sample processing for high-throughput applications.
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-450 Mixer/Mill (formerly SPEX SamplePrep Mixer/Mill 8000D) is a high-energy ball mill with dual clamps that grinds up to 0.2 – 10 grams of dry, brittle samples. It reduces samples to analytical fineness and can be utilized for mechanical alloying, slurry grinding, blending powders and mixing emulsions. Each grinding vial contains a sample and one or more balls. It is then shaken in a complex motion that combines back-and-forth swings with short lateral movements in the shape of a figure-8. The clamp’s motion develops strong G-forces in the vial, to pulverize 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.
