Laboratory Cutting Mills With Minimal Cleaning

When you buy FRITSCH laboratory cutting mills you automatically expect state-of-the-art grinding technology, fast and effective performance, durability and simple, safe operation. Something else you should consider when choosing a cutting mill is how quick and easy it is to clean, as that can have a big effect on the efficiency of your work and the quality of the resulting ground products.

In designing its PULVERISETTE 19 laboratory cutting mills, FRITSCH has paid particular attention to this aspect. It takes just seconds to open up the whole grinding chamber, from which the rotor and sieve can then be removed, very simply and quickly, without tools.

Uniquely, FRITSCH laboratory cutting mills are designed so that the entire top section of the housing can be lifted open, while the door can be opened wide or totally removed. This creates unmatched levels of access for cleaning. The rotor can be turned by hand, to reach all areas, or it can be taken out entirely.

With such an accessible design, and so little dead space for ground materials or dirt to accumulate, you can be sure that your cutting mill is completely empty and that there will be no problem of cross-contamination.

Whether you are seeking to reduce soft or medium-hard, tough elastic or fibrous materials, or heterogeneous mixtures, FRITSCH laboratory cutting mills will offer a configuration that’s perfect for your needs. They have been particularly useful in such fields as plastics, textiles, construction materials, chemicals, food, agriculture, forestry and the environment. Another key application has been in analytic and sample preparation for RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) analysis.

Here are a just a few of the comminution applications for which these mills have already been successfully used:

  • Toys: verification of lead content
  • PET plastic bottles and pressings: to assess recycled materials and help in creating products of higher value
  • Nuts: including verification of mycotoxin contamination
  • Natural rubber: assessment of crude materials before use in further processing
  • Leather: chemical analysis and monitoring
  • Wood: including analysis of heavy metals, arsenic, PCP and PCB in mature timber
