Cyclone mills – ideally suited for temperature-sensitive samples

For the grinding of solids the use of a cyclone can be beneficial, depending on the material properties. The rotation of the mill’s rotor or a connected vacuum cleaner produces a rotating air flow inside the cyclone, thus optimizing the air throughput. As a result, sample and grinding tools are cooled and material discharge is improved. These effects are particularly beneficial when grinding temperature-sensitive materials. Further advantages are the complete recovery of the sample material as well as the possibility to process larger sample volumes.

 

RETSCH’s line of laboratory mills includes various models which can be equipped with a cyclone (Fig.). Whereas the rotor mill TWISTER has an integrated cyclone, the Ultra Centrifugal Mill ZM 200 can be optionally equipped with a cyclone and collecting vessels of various sizes. For the RETSCH Cutting Mills a combination of cyclone and vacuum cleaner is available.
