The Specamill grinding accessory is specifically designed to mix a solid sample with a surplus of KBr powder for the preparation of powder samples before compression into KBr pellets for infrared analysis. The Specamill can also be utilized for preparing samples for diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. The sample’s target particle size is at least 25µm.
The Specamill contains two capsule sets: one agate and one stainless steel to match the different hardness of sample materials. Each capsule set contains a stopper, capsule body, and three grinding spheres (either agate or stainless steel). The capacity of capsule is 3ml, and the proposed filling volume is 30%, excluding spheres.
The main features of the Specamilla are:
- Adjustable vibration
- Rapid grinding
- Choice of capsule and sphere materials
- Timer with manual override
