The XRD-Mill McCrone is the perfect choice when preparing samples for subsequent x-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis.
The unique grinding action of this mill rapidly reduces troublesome 0.5mm particles to submicrometer sizes required for quantitative and qualitative analytical methods.
Forty-eight cylindrical grinding elements produce both line contact blows and planar shearing, in contrast to the random contact blows of a conventional ball mill.
Due to the very gentle size reduction process used by this mill, the crystal lattice of the sample is preserved.
The grinding vessel consists of a 125 ml capacity polypropylene jar fitted with a screw capped gasketless polyethylene closure. The jar is filled with an ordered array of 48 identical cylindrical grinding elements (8 rows of 6 elements each), available in agate, zirconium oxide or corundum. The grinding time for optimum micronization is between 3 and 30 minutes. A typical sample volume is between 2 and 4 ml.
Accessories and Options (pictured):
- Grinding jar with lid and pouring lid
- Agate, zirconium oxide or sintered corundum grinding elements
- Loading device for grinding cylinder
- Sample preparation kit (stainless steel percussion mortar, 10 sintered corundum cylinders, 1 sieve 500 µm, and a cleaning brush)
