NEW: XRD-Mill McCrone – Rapid Particle Size Reduction for X-Ray Diffraction

Add to favorites

RETSCH have enhanced their comprehensive range of mills and grinders with the XRD-Mill McCrone which was specifically developed for sample preparation to X-Ray diffraction analysis. Typical areas of application include geology, chemistry, mineralogy and materials science.

What makes this mill so effective is the unique grinding action: the grinding jar contains 48 cylinders which pulverize the sample very gently by friction. As a result the crystal lattice structure of the sample is largely preserved which is an important precondition for obtaining meaningful X-ray diffractograms. Further advantages are short grinding times, virtually no sample loss and exceptionally narrow particle size distributions.

The grinding vessel consists of a 125 ml polypropylene jar fitted with a screw-capped polyethylene closure. The jar is packed with an ordered array of forty-eight identical cylindrical grinding elements which are available in agate, zirconium oxide or sintered corundum. For optimum micronization the mill is operated for periods of 3 to 30 minutes; the recommended sample volume is 2 to 4 ml.

Benefits at a glance:

• Crystal lattice structure of sample is preserved

• Minimum sample contamination

• Narrow, reproducible particle size distribution

• Compact bench-top model

• Easy cleaning

• Suitable for dry and wet grinding

Retsch is the leading solution provider for neutral-to-analysis sample preparation and characterization of solids. On the basis of more than 100 years of experience RETSCH develops innovative size reduction and sieving equipment which is characterized by excellent performance, operating convenience, safety and a long lifetime.
