Coming Clean with Fritsch Cutting Mills

Everybody, of course, wants superb results from their cutting mill, but there is no doubt that another important requisite for the busy laboratory is the ease of mill cleaning.

It’s simply no good if your comminution is good but the cleaning is incredibly time consuming, which is where FRITSCH have taken a lead on competitors with the design of their PULVERISETTE 19 cutting mill. Not only does it gives results of the quality you demand for the size-reduction of soft to medium-hard, tough elastic and fibrous materials, but it also ensures you can be cleaned and ready for the next run quickly, easily and safely.

What then is the secret to the FRITSCH approach that gives them such an advantage? Well, it’s not really a secret; it’s just good design. Only with FRITSCH can you lift open the entire top of the housing and remove the door too. This unrivalled access to the grinding chamber means both the rotor and sieve can be easily removed without the need for complicated tools. This results in minimal dead space making cleaning easy and thus decreasing the likelihood of cross-contamination.

If this sounds too good to be true, you can check for yourself. Simply click on the video icon to your right and you can see fast and effective cleaning of a FRITSCH mill for yourself.

FRITSCH make 6 different cutting mills, with maximum feed sizes from 70 x 70 mm to 120 x 85 mm and maximum throughput from 50 l/h up to 85 l/h. Final finesses produced range from 0.2 – 20 mm, with rotational speeds from 300 to 3400 rpm. There is also a corrosion resistant 316L version available.

This makes FRITSCH mills suitable for a wealth of applications and industries, including pharmaceuticals, plastics, agriculture, forestry, food, construction materials, chemistry and textiles. Plus, of course, for sample preparation for subsequent ‘Restriction of Hazardous Substances’ (RoHS) analysis.
