Grinding/Mixing/Drying/Evaporation

  • Vermeer Chipper
  • Kubota Tractor
  • Luck/Now Mixer
  • Royer Screen
  • Hammermill
  • Pellet Mill
  • Extruder
  • Fritsch Pulverisette grinder
  • Retsch Grindomix GM200 Mixer/grinder
  • Tecator Cycotec 1093 Sample mill
    The Cycotec is a sample mill used to used for the rapid, uniform grinding of various dry samples. This mill is capable of grinding up to four grams per second, and does so in a uniform fashion because of the cyclone principle that it uses.
  • SPEX 8000M Mixer mill
    The SPEX 8000M is a shaker mill that utilizes ball bearings to pulverize and mix samples. A sample is placed inside a crucible, along with two or more ball bearings. The crucible is then secured to a shock-mounted electric motor, which shakes the crucible at a pace that causes the ball bearings to completely pulverize or thoroughly mix its contents.
  • Various drying ovens/furnaces
    These ovens are insulated devices that are commonly used to either dry or age samples.
  • Buchi R-200 Rotary evaporator
    The Buchi R-200 is a single-step distillation device. It is used for the thermal separation of smaller quantities of sample material. It is a quick, gentle, and effective way to separate products with different boiling points.
