Up to eight jars of 50 ml, or four jars of 125 ml, 250 ml or 500 ml, may be placed into the four grinding stations. The unique Retsch jars are distinguished by 0-rings that ensure a no-loss processing of dry samples or slurries, even during long-term grinding involving significant volume expansion or temperature rise. Flanges on the jar facilitate handling, and the gap between upper and lower flange provides for easy opening of the jar even when under pressure. The unique C-type grinding jars are available in a choice of steels, tungsten carbide and ceramics, such as sintered aluminum and zirconium oxide as well as agate.
Typical samples in the ceramic industry include oxides and rare earths for R&D purposes, particularly in the field of high-performance ceramics. The planetary ball mill is mostly used to simulate production mills or to produce specimens of expensive high-tech ceramics in an experimental stage.
