Cutting Mills Require Minimal Cleaning
Fritsch cutting mills

Fritsch cutting mills are ideal for size reduction of soft to medium-hard, tough-elastic, and fibrous materials, as well as for heterogeneous mixtures.

They are used in the areas of environment, plastics, agriculture, forestry, construction materials, textiles, chemistry and foodstuffs as well as for analytic and sample preparation for RoHS-analyses, like for example mobile phone LCD glass, mobile phone keypads, electronic chips, and circuit boards.

An important criterion for a cutting mill is how fast and easy it can be cleaned in daily laboratory use. Easy cleaning was a key consideration when the Pulverisette 19 was developed. While the user is still tightening the screws on other mills, this cutting mill is already clean. The entire grinding chamber can be easily opened in seconds and both the rotor and the sieve can simply be removed with simple motions. The user can lift open the entire top part of the housing, as well as the door, which can be completely removed. The rotor can be easily removed without tools for quick cleaning in between and can be turned by hand, when the mill is open. The result is a completely open and empty grinding chamber with minimal dead space for easy and quick cleaning – a secure protection against cross contamination.
