Fast and reproducible pulverisation of large sample volumes

Published by , Editor
World Coal,

No grinder can beat the speed of a Vibratory Disc Mill when it comes to preparing samples, e.g. for XRF analyses. In addition to the Vibratory Disc Mill RS 200, RETSCH now offers the RS 300 XL for sample volumes of up to 2000 ml.

This new model allows for simultaneous processing of up to 4 samples. As a result of the robust universal drive shaft, which sets the grinding jar into a 3D motion, it accepts grinding sets weighing up to 30 kg. The RS 300 XL very effectively grinds hard, brittle and fibrous samples, such as cement, coal, minerals or electronic components by impact and friction. Grind sizes below 50 microns are typically obtained in a matter of seconds. For safe operation the grinding set is firmly attached to the vibration plate with a pneumatic clamping device.

A selection of grinding jar materials and sizes makes this mill versatile and suitable for grinding a variety of sample materials without affecting analysis results.

Due to the high final fineness and speed both RETSCH Vibratory Disc Mills are a good choice when it comes to preparing samples for spectral analysis.

Benefits of the RS 300 XL include:

  • Reproducible results and homogeneous samples.
  • Short grinding times.
  • Programmable interval function.
  • Wide selection of materials for contamination-free grinding.
  • Grinding jar volumes from 100 ml up to 2000 ml.
  • Optional Autolifter for ergonomic handling of heavy grinding sets.
