Hand-Cranked or Motorized Laboratory Disk Mills provide effective performance for limited dry or wet grinding to moderate fineness. Mills are useful for coal, chemicals, ores, pharmaceuticals, nuts, grains, and other friable materials.
Both the Hand-Crank and Motorized Disk Mill process materials between a set of iron alloy fixed and rotating 4in (102mm) diameter grinding disks for reduction. Feed hoppers have 50in³ (0.8L) volume, and final fineness is easily set by thumb screw adjustment of grinding disk clearance. No.80—No.100 (180—150μm) is typical fineness limit. Mills disassemble quickly without tools for cleaning.
Disk mills are supplied with tooth-type feed augers for dry materials and a set of fine-grinding disks. For wet or oily materials, optional Wet-Feed Auger sets are available and include a worm-type feeder and fine-grinding disks. LCA-171 Coarse Grinding Disk Set fits either mill and allows higher throughput of coarse product. LCA-171 is purchased separately.
