FRITSCH Planetary Ball Mills – high-performance all-rounder in routine laboratory work
The Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line with 2 grinding stations is designed for a broad range of applications and ideally suited for loss-free grinding down to a final fineness of 100 nm of hard, medium-hard and brittle materials. Depending on the desired final fineness, the grinding can be performed dry, in suspension or in inert gas.
In addition to comminution, you can also use Planetary Mills for mixing and homogenising emulsions and pastes or for mechanical activation and alloying in materials research.
Comminution according to the Planetary-Principle
The comminution takes place primarily through the high-energy impact of grinding balls and partially through friction between grinding balls and the grinding bowl wall. To achieve this, the grinding bowl, containing the material to be ground and grinding balls, rotates around its own axis on a main disk rotating in the opposite direction. At a certain speed, the centrifugal force causes the ground sample material and grinding balls to bounce off the inner wall of the grinding bowl, cross the bowl diagonally at an extremely high speed and impact the material to be ground on the opposite wall of the bowl.
Due to sunken grinding bowls, the high-performance Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line reaches unprecedented relative rotational speeds of the grinding of up to 2,200 rpm and centrifugal accelerations of 95 times the force of gravity. Thereby is the application of energy approximately 150 % above that of conventional Planetary Mills. For ultra-fine grinding results down into the nano range in shorter times.
Your advantage: the shortest grinding times down to any desired fineness, even into the nano range.
Fast, simple and safe operation
The sunken bowls with SelfLOCK Technology form a single unit with the lid – no additional tensioning, no incorrect operation! The bowls are simply placed in the mill, where they position themselves and snap securely into place. The grinding chamber of the premium line opens and closes automatically and independently rotates the bowl mountings into a convenient position for handling. Removal and opening of the bowls are also performed with just two motions. For easy cleaning even the milling chamber cover can be completely removed.
Automatic control and monitoring – Measurement of gas pressure and temperature
The software MillControl enables the automatic control of the Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line and validation of the grinding process. The actual rotational speed and power consumption are checked and documented. By using two EASY GTM-bowls with special lid and transmitter you transform your PULVERISETTE 7 premium line into an analytical measuring system for monitoring pressure and temperature during the grinding process.
Configure your Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line exactly to your specific application
The Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 premium line operates with two grinding bowls in the sizes 20 ml, 45 ml or 80 ml, which turn with a transmission ratio of 1 : –2 relative to the main disk. To achieve the best grinding results and for direct prevention of contamination of the samples due to undesired abrasion, all grinding bowls and balls are available in 6 different materials. For grinding in inert gas and for mechanical activation and alloying premium line gassing lids are recommended – quickly and safely. For grinding in suspension, we offer an Emptying Device for a quick and easy separation of the grinding balls and suspension.
