Because of the efficient size reduction technique the ZM 200 ensures the gentle preparation of analytical samples in a very short time.
The comprehensive range of accessories including a large variety of ring sieves and rotors as well as collection systems makes the Ultra Centrifugal Mill a versatile instrument that can be easily adapted to varying applications.
The optional Vibratory Feeder is load-controlled via an interface and ensures a uniform grind at maximum output rate. When using a cyclone, the sample material is additionally cooled by the air stream and more rapidly discharged from the grinding chamber via the cassette pan with outlet. This effect can be increased by connecting a vacuum cleaner.
With thousands of installations, the ZM 200 has become a standard for food and feeds, for the chemical industry as well as for agricultural testing.
In the Ultra Centrifugal Mill ZM 200 size reduction takes place by impact and shearing effects between the rotor and the fixed ring sieve. The feed material passes through the hopper (with splash-back protection) onto the rotor. Centrifugal acceleration throws it outward with great energy and it is precrushed on impact with the wedge-shaped rotor teeth moving at a high speed. It is then finely ground between the rotor and the ring sieve.
This 2-step grinding ensures particularly gentle but fast processing. The feed material only remains in the grinding chamber for a very short time, which means that the characteristic features of the sample to be determined are not altered. The ground sample is collected in the collecting cassette surrounding the grinding chamber or in the downstream cyclone or paper filter bag.
