  • Fast fine grinding with rotational speeds up to 800 rpm
  • Loss-free comminution also below 1 μm
  • Uniform extremely fine comminution of smallest sample amounts
  • Useful capacity up to 2 x 20 ml



    Ideal for smallest quantities

    The PULVERISETTE 7 classic line with 2 working stations is ideally suited for fast, uniform, and extremely fine comminution of very small samples down to colloidal fineness of hard, medium-hard, brittle and moist samples. Depending on the desired final fineness can the grinding be performed dry or in suspension.
    Besides for comminution, the Planetary Ball Mill can be utilized for mixing and homogenizing 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, with this configuration, 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 800 rpm – the PULVERISETTE 7 classic line reaches a centrifugal acceleration of up to 50 g.

    Configure your Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 classic line exactly to your specific application 

    The Planetary Micro Mill PULVERISETTE 7 classic line operates with two grinding bowls of sizes 12 ml or 45 ml, which turn with a transmission ratio 1 : -2 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 7 different materials.

  • Applications / Solutions

    • 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.
