Planetary Mono Mill PULVERISETTE 6 classic line



  • Special grinding force due to a rotational speed up to 650 U/min
  • Loss-free grinding even below 1 μm
  • 1 Working station with easily adjustable imbalance compensation
  • Safe tensioning of the bowls with the Safe-Lock-System
  • Useful capacity up to 225 ml



    High performance in minimum space

    The Planetary Mono Mill PULVERISETTE 6 classic line is a high-performance Planetary Ball Mill with a single grinding bowl mount and practical, easily adjustable imbalance compensation. Your advantage: Particularly easy use and high-energy effect of up to 650 rpm. This ensures a constantly high grinding performance with extremely low space requirements for loss-free grinding results for the comminution of hard, medium-hard, brittle and moist materials, dry in suspension or in inert gas.
    At same time, the PULVERISETTE 6 classic line is ideally suited for mechanical alloying or for mixing and perfect homogenising of emulsions and pastes.


    Comminution according to the Planetary Principle

    The comminution of the material to be ground takes place primarily through the high-energy impact of grinding balls. To achieve this, the grinding bowl, containing the material to be ground and grinding balls, rotates around its own axis on a main disk whilst rotating rapidly in the opposite direction. At a certain speed, the centrifugal force causes the ground sample material and grinding balls to separate from the inner wall of the grinding bowl. The grinding balls then cross the bowl at high speed and further grind the sample material by impact against the opposite bowl wall. In addition, impact between the balls themselves on the sample material adds to the size reduction process.
    Due to the enormous rotational speed of the main disk – up to 650 rpm – achieves the PULVERISETTE 6 classic line a centrifugal acceleration of up to 29 g.

    • Programmable interval and pause times
    • Smaller grinding bowls also possible with an adapter
    • RS232 interface for outputting process data (validation)
    • Monitoring of the grinding parameters even when grinding chamber is open through an ergonomically positioned and always visible, splash-proof IP65 membrane keyboard
    • Easy cleaning of the grinding elements
    • Energy-save-function (electricity-saving mode)
    • Extensive accessories for simplifying your daily work

    Reproducible grinding results and absolutely safe grinding bowl clamping

    Especially convenient for exact, reproducibility and grinding of smallest sample amounts is the electronic timer: adjustable to the second and a programmable reversing feature. The Safe-Lock System, which is delivered with a torque wrench, enables simple and safe clamping of the grinding bowls - absolutely risk-free.


    GTM – Gas Pressure and Temperature Measuring System

    The Planetary Mono Mill PULVERISETTE 6 classic line can be combined with the GTM-System for measuring of the gas pressure and temperature during grinding. This turns your mill into an analytical measuring system.

    Configure your Planetary Mono Mill PULVERISETTE 6 classic line exactly to your specific application

    The Planetary Mono Mill PULVERISETTE 6 classic line with 1 working station operates with 1 respectively 2 grinding bowls of sizes 80, 250, 500 ml, which turn with a transmission ratio 1 : -1,82 relative to the main disk. To achieve best grinding results and for direct prevention of contamination of the samples due to undesired abrasion, grinding bowls and grinding balls are available in 6 different materials.
    For grinding in inert gas, for mechanical activation and alloying are gassing lids recommended.

  • Applications / Solutions

    • From “Boulder” to Nano-Particles

      Medium-hard to hard materials with edge lengths up to 95 mm can be pre-crushed with the FRITSCH Jaw Crusher PULVERISETTE 1 so an additional fine comminution with many FRITSCH mills is possible.

    • Additives for dry milling

      During a dry grinding, often only after a short grinding period hygroscopic material tends to stick. A second factor causing this is the static charge respectively adhesive powers of fine particles.

    • Crushing concrete coarsely and fine

      Concrete is a complex material, which its characteristics due to its composition and as a result of the systematic addition of additives can be adjusted very differentiated. However, this results in the demand to monitor this composition for two reasons: in order to ensure the desired useful properties and also to ensure the quality of the mixture.

    • Sample preparation in the ceramics industry

      Clays, chamottes and ceramics are used versatile and must therefore be in accordance with different degrees of quality standards. These quality standards have especially in recent years gained in significance for the processing industry and therefore at the same time for the producers of such chamottes and ceramics.

    • Processing selenium in the laboratory

      Selenium – listed in the periodic system of the elements in the 6th main group, below sulphur, is unknown to many. Although it belongs to the essential trace elements and is integrated by the body in the so called 21st amino acid. But still, it’s a toxin and the comminution of it requires a certain caution.

    • Characteristics of sand and criteria for its comminution

      Sand is a common unconsolidated sedimentary rock. The mineral composition varies. The analytical evaluation of the chemical composition and therefore the aptness for the intended uses make the comminution of quartz sand a prerequisite. With FRITSCH instruments, the tracking and optimization of the comminution processes can be excellently accomplished.
