Cutting Mill Optimised for Cannabis Processing Announced

Dec 17 2018 Read 584 Times

The Fritsch PULVERISETTE 19 with Cyclone is an efficient instrument to quickly comminute large volumes of cannabis. Plant material is fed into the Fritsch Universal Cutting Mill PULVERISETTE 19 through a large funnel for fast throughput. Due to the efficiently designed cutting geometry of the rotating cutting edges of the rotor and the fixed knives in the grinding chamber, the sample material is automatically moved and comminuted increasing fineness by the shearing forces between the knives. The negative pressure in the cyclone ensures a continuous flow through the cutting rotor and the selected sieve cassette for precise final fineness in a narrow particle size range. It prevents sample material from escaping during feeding and opens up new possibilities in the cannabis processing. High throughput of up to 60lbs per hour is supported by large collection vessels of up to 65 litres.

The design of the grinding chambers in these mills results in minimal dead space and exchangeable sieve cassettes make operation and cleaning straightforward. Because the entire grinding chamber can be opened easily in seconds and both the rotor and the sieve can easily be removed with simple motions. Only with Fritsch Cutting Mills it is possible to lift open the entire top part of the housing as well as the front door; in fact, the door can be completely removed.

Advantages with the Fritsch PULVERISETTE 19 include: adjustable rotational speed for different applications; batch comminution without cross-contamination; reproducible results; minimal temperature increase; high throughput of up to 60 lbs/h; fast homogenisation of batches.
