Hand-Crank or Motorized Laboratory Disk Mills provide adequate performance for limited dry or wet grinding to moderate fineness. Mills are useful for coal, chemicals, ores, pharmaceuticals, nuts, grains, and other friable materials. Feed hoppers hold 50in³ (0.8L). Product fineness is easily set by thumb screw adjustment of disk clearance. No.80—No.100 (180—150μm) is typical fineness limit. Mills disassemble quickly without tools for cleaning. Both use 4in (102mm) diameter fixed and rotating dry grinding disk sets.
Optional LCA-171 Coarse Grinding Set allows higher throughput of coarse product. Wet Grinding Worm Feeder accessories are available for wet or oily materials. Feeders (with included disk sets) quickly interchange, so extras are useful for different sample types to avoid contamination.
