Planetary Mills Grind to Nanometer Range

March 19, 2015

The new Fritsch premium line offers rotational speeds and ultrafine grinding results down into the nano range. Due to the time-saving premium grinding bowl locking-system, the automatic checking of the locks in the mill, the blocking in event of impermissible operating states, and the new automatic shut-off function in event of an imbalance, the operator and the machine are kept safer than ever.

Users can achieve rotation speeds of up to 1100 rpm and an acceleration of 95 times the force of gravity. The resulting energy application is roughly 150% greater than classic planetary mills. Tasks are more economical and considerably finer grinding results in shorter times are delivered.

The bowl and lid form a solid unit – the grinding bowls are closed gas-tight with one motion and with a second motion, they are safely locked in the mill. The grinding bowls position themselves and snap securely into place – no additional tensioning, no incorrect operation. The grinding chamber of the premium line opens and closes automatically and independently rotates the bowl mounts in a convenient position for handling.

A well-organized touch screen provides simple and precise navigation through the menu structure. It is easy to program in precise start times.

The mill automatically detects the inserted grinding bowls via an RFID chip, then optimizes the rotation speed and prevents impermissible grinding settings. The automatic parameter check - before every grinding - guarantees exact reproducibility.

To achieve the best grinding results, all grinding bowls and balls are available in different sizes and materials. For grinding in inert gas and for mechanical alloying use the Fritsch premium line gassing lids – quickly and safely.

The Fritsch Easy GTM ensures a simple and easy monitoring of thermal effects, physical and chemical reactions, or increase or decrease in pressure due to continuous measurement of gas pressure and temperature directly in the grinding bowl. And the mill is automatically controlled in a manner that the set parameters are not exceeded.

When grinding in suspension, the emptying device provides quick and easy separation of the grinding balls and suspension.
