Cryogenic grinding was never more convenient or efficient
RETSCH has developed the CryoMill especially for cryogenic grinding. An integrated cooling system ensures that the grinding jar is continually cooled with liquid nitrogen before and during the grinding process. Thus the sample is embrittled and volatile components are preserved. Processor-controlled programmable cooling cycles (CryoCycles) allow for individual adaptation of the grinding process to the sample material. The Autofill System provides liquid nitrogen in the required amount, thus ensuring that the user never gets into direct contact with the LN2. This makes operating the mill particularly safe.
The new CryoMill generation achieves considerably improved grind sizes thanks to the increased oscillating frequency of 30 Hz. Another new feature is the possibility to store up to 9 SOPs. Further improvements include a steel-reinforced housing, optimized liquid nitrogen duct and new accessories such as an adapter for 6 reaction vials and a 10 ml grinding jar. The mill can also be operated without cooling which makes it suitable for a vast range of applications.
