The planetary ball mill PM 100 offered by Retsch is utilized for applications requiring a high level of fineness. In addition to the standard mixing and size reduction processes, the mill complies with all the technical requirements for colloidal grinding and has the required energy input for mechanical alloying processes. The mill’s centrifugal forces result in high pulverization energy and thus reduce the time taken for grinding operation. The PM 100 CM is a versatile bench-top unit and features a grinding station. It functions in centrifugal mode, which results in a gentle size reduction process with minimum abrasion. The planetary ball mill is used in a wide range of applications, such as bones, alloys, charcoal, carbon fibres, coal, coke, ceramics, clay minerals, electronic scrap, hair, glass, metal oxides, ores, minerals, paper paints and lacquers, amongst others.
