The non homogeneity of materials presents a serious dilemma in the sample treatment: Taking a small quantity of sample in a truck, and analysing it, can be representative of the non-homogenous material?
Often, the best approach is first to take a quantity of the material large enough to be compositionally representative and reduce it to fine homogeneous powder.

HORIBA Scientific proposes a large range of laboratories grinders capable to pulverize and homogeneize a wide variety of samples, including metals, rocks, plastics, plant and animal tissue, bone, pharmaceuticals, and more.

The choice of the grinder is determined by the nature and the quantity of material to grind.
