The McCrone mill is an effective means of reducing samples to sub-micron sizes suitable for x-ray diffraction/fluorescence, infra-red spectroscopy and atomic absorption analysis.
- Minimal sample damage and contamination
- Exceptionally homogeneous and reproducible sample distribution
- Choice of grinding element materials
- Wet and dry grinding capability
The unique grinding action (contact blows and planar shearing) ensures a short grinding time with virtually no sample loss and exceptionally even particle distribution. A choice of grinding elements (agate or corundum) allow wet and dry grinding of many materials, including carbides, nitrides, borides, cement, clay, shale and mica. In use, a 125ml polypropylene grinding jar is filled with an array of 48 cylindricalgrinding elements and accepts up to 4ml of sample (2ml is optimal). A timed grinding period can be set between 3 and 30 minutes, depending on the sample, achieving an ultimate fineness of 4 to 5µm, based on the required initial particle size of 0.5mm. There is minimal damage to surfaces and internal structure of the grinding chamber. An accessory sample preparation kit reduces sample material to the required 0.5mm size.
