The MICRO-MILL® II Grinder is ideal for rapid, high-speed milling of small samples from 20 to 50mL. The ⅕ horsepower (150W) motor drives a stainless steel blade that quickly pulverizes bauxite, bone, ceramics, coal, Devorda’s alloy, fertilizer, filter paper, fly ash, frozen tissue, glass, grain, kaolinites, leaves, limestone, frozen tissue, pharmaceuticals, pigment blends, rocks, roots, shale, seeds, slags, soil, teeth, wood, and more. This motor is designed to provide continuous high torque to maintain blade velocity for fastest sample pulverizing.
The two-position rocker switch allows either pulse or continuous operation to match with sample requirements. The rocker switch includes a light that illuminates when the unit is properly assembled and ready for use. Additional safety features include a built-in switch that prevents grinder operation unless all parts are completely assembled to the base and a resettable circuit breaker that protects the mill if the sample jams the blade. Non-skid feet prevent movement of the mill during use and won’t mar benchtops.
The grinding chamber assembly is removable to allow complete sample recovery and cleaning. An additional accessory grinding chamber can be used to reduce cross contamination between dissimilar samples. The accessory chamber includes upper and lower grinding chamber sections with blade, and is ready for immediate assembly to the MICRO-MILL® II Grinder. For users pulverizing very hard material, a satellite faced hard blade is available (48975-484). Softer samples or temperature-sensitive samples, such as frozen tissue, leaves, roots, seeds, and wood can be processed by adding dry ice to the grinding chamber during processing.
