The Fritsch Classic Line planetary ball mills are the “entry level, all-rounder” planetary ball mill systems, which can be used for a wide range of sample preparation and research applications. The most popular selling Classic Line planetary ball mill is the P6 mono mill, which can be used with: 12ml, 45ml, 80ml, 250ml and 500ml grinding bowls.
The grinding bowls, have a useful working capacity of just under half their volume, with the remaining volume being occupied by the milling balls and their movement. For example: an 80ml grinding bowl has a useful working capacity of 10-30mls.
A sample volume of 10-30mls is ideal for XRF sample preparation and the Fritsch Pulverisette 6 planetary ball mill can be used with 2 x 80ml grinding bowls, by clamping one grinding bowl on top the other. If only a single 80ml grinding bowl is required, the single grinding bowl adapter (which is also used for the 12ml and 45ml grinding bowls) should be used or an empty 80ml grinding bowl.
There are five different Fritsch Classic Line planetary ball mills: Pulverisette 4 vario-planetary mill, Pulverisette 5 (model II and IV), Pulverisette 6 and Pulverisette 7 micro mill, which can each be used for a wide range of different sample preparation and research applications.
It is also possible to measure the gas temperature and pressure inside the grinding bowls (using the special grinding bowl lids with a transmitter and receiver board).
