New cutting mill

RETSCH have extended their range of cutting mills by a new model which combines powerful size reduction with very easy handling. The new cutting mill SM 300 (Fig.) can be perfectly adapted to many different – and also difficult – size reduction tasks thanks to the variable speed from 700 –3000 rpm. The powerful 3 kW drive with additional flywheel mass and a high torque ensures excellent grinding results so that even heterogeneous sample mixtures are no longer a problem. Another advantage of the SM 300 is the easy access to the grinding chamber for cleaning: The housing is simply folded back and the push-fit rotor can be removed without tools. This only takes a few seconds. The cutting mill SM 300 can be equipped with a wide range of accessories, among them a cyclone-suction-combination.
