What is Sample Preparation

Ball Mill

Our 8000 series Mixers/Mills® are high-energy ball mills that pulverize samples by shaking one or two sample vials with grinding balls, in a figure-eight motion, several hundred times a minute!

Typical samples include hard or brittle samples such as rocks, minerals, cements, and ceramics. Also great for mechanical alloying of super conducting materials.
