McCrone Micronising mill

publication date: Feb 25, 2013
author/source: McCrone

Rapid particle size reduction for qualitative & quantitative analysis

McCrone Micronising millThe McCrone Micronising mill is widely acknowledged to be one of the most effective means of reducing sample to sub-micron sizes suitable for X-Ray diffraction; X-Ray Fluorescence; Infra-Red Spectroscopy and Atomic Absorption Analysis.

What makes it so effective is the unique grinding action of the cylinders producing both linear contact blows and planar shearing.

The result is a short grinding time with virtually no sample loss, as well as exceptionally even particle size distribution. There is virtually no chemical degradation of the particles and a significant reduction in the crystal lattice disturbance.The McCrone Mill is used throughout the world in laboratories where integrity of the sample is of paramount importance and is indispensable for leading geologists, chemists, mineralogists and materials scientists
