Mixing & Milling

From macro to micro; For optimal material preparation
This is some text inside of a div block.

Laboratory mills and mixers are essential tools for a wide variety of applications in material science research, quality control, and industrial production.

They are used for a variety of tasks, including:

  • Particle size reduction: Fine powders for applications including battery production and catalysts
  • Homogenisation: Creating uniform mixtures
  • Sample preparation: For example, XRD samples
  • Material synthesis: For example, mechanical alloying

The choice of laboratory mill or mixer will depend on the specific application. Factors to consider include the type of material, the desired particle size, and the throughput required.

Laboratory Mills: Used to grind materials into smaller particles. Typically used to prepare samples for analysis or to produce powders for further processing. Types include ball, attritor, and roller mills.

Laboratory Mixers: Used to combine and blend materials together. Typically used to prepare homogeneous samples for analysis, mixtures for further processing, or to coat particles with a thin layer of another material. Types include laboratory mixers, planetary mixers, ribbon mixers, and sigma mixers.
