RETSCH - MM500 Control

The MM 500 control is a high energy laboratory ball mill that can be used for dry, wet and cryogenic grinding with a frequency of up to 30Hz. It is the first mixer mill in the market that allows to monitor and control the temperature of a grinding process. 

The temperature area covers a range from -100 to 100°C. For maximum flexibility, the mill can be operated with various thermal fluids, enabling the use of different tempering devices for cooling or heating. If liquid nitrogen is chosen for cooling, the mill needs to be equipped with the optionally available extension device cryoPad. The innovative cryoPad technology allows to select and control a specific cooling temperature in the range from – 100 to 0°C for the grinding process.
