Particularly suitable for Carbides, Nitrides, Borides, Cement,
Clay, Shale, Mica and many other materials.
The 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
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. The Mill is
indispensable for leading geologists, chemists, mineralogists and
The McCrone Micronising Mill rapidly reduces samples by a unique
vibratory grinding action. Each element within the grinding vessel
moves with respect to its neighbour so as to produce linear contact
blows and planar shearing.
The grinding vessel consists of a 125ml capacity polypropylene
jar fitted with a screw capped gasketless polyethylene closure. The
jar is packed with an ordered array of forty-eight identical
cylindrical grinding elements which are available in either Agate
or Corundum. Depending on the material grinding time is between 3
and 30 minutes and optimum grinding efficiency is usually achieved
with 2ml of sample.There is minimal particle damage to surfaces and
the internal structure and the grinding chamber.
