New Drum Mill for Large Sample Quantity Pulverisation

Aug 31 2021

With the TM 500 drum mill Retsch has developed an instrument that grinds up to 35 litres of sample to a fineness of 15 µm. The maximum feed size is 20 mm.

The drum is filled with 80 kg grinding balls which pulverise a large variety of materials by impact and friction. The variable speed from 10 to 50 min-1, different grinding ball sizes and the possibility of long-term grinding up to 100 h allows perfect adaptation to individual sample properties and reproducible results. The drum is easily emptied with the electronic tilt function. The range of suitable materials comprises biological samples, minerals, ceramics, paints, pharmaceutical products, cement clinker and many more.

The 4.3" touch display provides convenient operation with a wide range of parameters such as start delay, interval mode and grinding time. 

Options such as a foodGrade version made of 316L steel or a sieving section for easy separation of grinding balls and sample make the TM 500 a versatile laboratory mill.
