A ball mill for powerful size reduction and homogenization

RETSCH ball mills are available as mixer mills as well as planetary ball mills.

Mixer Mills grind and homogenize small sample volumes quickly and efficiently by impact and friction. They are suitable for dry, wet and cryogenic grinding as well as for cell disruption for DNA/RNA recovery.

RETSCH’s innovative Planetary Ball Mills meet and exceed all requirements for fast and reproducible grinding down to the nano range. They are used for the most demanding tasks, from routine sample processing to colloidal grinding and advanced materials development.

The High Energy Ball Mill Emax is an entirely new type of mill for high energy input. The unique combination of high friction and impact results in extremely fine particles within the shortest amount of time.
