Spex ball mill from Wolflabs

Product Update

Introduction
Spex 8000D ball mill from Wolflabs. The 8000D Mixer/Mill is a high-energy ball mill with dual clamps that grinds up to 0.2 - 10 grams of dry, brittle samples. Ideal for  mechanical alloying, slurry grinding, blending powders, and mixing emulsions. The vial, which contains a sample and one or more balls, is shaken in a complex motion that combines back-and-forth swings with short lateral movements, each end of the vial describing a figure-8. The clamp's motion develops strong G-forces in the vial, to pulverize the toughest rocks, slags and ceramics.

Features and benefits
- Accepts all SPEX SamplePrep Mixer/Mill(R) Grinding and Mixing Vial Sets.
- Also called a shaker mill or high-energy ball mill.
- Dual clamps enable multiple sample processing for high-throughput applications.
- Efficient two-clamp laboratory mill commonly referred to as the "SPEX Mill".
- Equipped with forced-air cooling and safety interlock system for operator protection.
- Extended Running Time Chip is available for extending timer range to 175 hours (10,500 minutes).
- For efficiency, clamps are run in balance with the same vial and load in each clamp.
- For grinding multiple samples in the 0.2 - 10 gram range or mixing up to 60 mL of multiple sample per clamp.
- Reduces samples to analytical fineness and can be utilized for mechanical alloying and nanomilling.
- Shock mounted motor enables bench top operation.
- Steel housing protects the clamp mechanism and rugged construction ensures a long life of heavy work.
- The 8010 and 8011 Multiple-Sample Adapters permit processing of multiple smaller samples.
- Variable-range electronic timer is factory-set for 100-minute range.

6820 Auto-Fill System for the 6850 Freezer/Mill

 

The 6820 Auto-Fill System is designed to automatically maintain the required level of liquid nitrogen within the 6850 Freezer/Mill during operation. The Auto-Fill System is a more efficient and safer way to handle the volume of liquid nitrogen required for processing samples in the 6850 Freezer/Mill. This automated system reduces the loss of liquid nitrogen and saves the time lost when manually filling the reservoir.

The Auto-Fill System requires a cryogenic transfer hose, not included with the 6820 package. These transfer hoses are available in different lengths and can be constructed with different materials. The transfer hose must be configured with a 1/2 inch JIC female flare nut at each end for proper installation. The 6820 system is supplied with a safety relief valve that connects to the liquid nitrogen supply via a 1/2 inch JIC female flare nut.

The Auto-Fill System is available as an option that can be installed when you place an order for a 6850 Freezer/Mill or as a retrofit package for 6800 and 6850 systems that are already in
service.
