5 Signs that You Should Service or Replace Your Shaker

  1. Crowded lab space may mean needing to purchase a shaker that performs more than one function, such as a variety of different motions— orbital, reciprocal, nutating, etc.
  2. The type or types of shakers you currently have don’t meet your requirements. There are a variety of shakers to choose from, wet, dry, heated, unheated, fast, slow, large, small, and more.
  3. Your shaker does not have the level of control you need or cannot be customized for your particular applications.
  4. Mechanical components on the shaker are damaged, dirty, or worn out.
  5. The warranty is up on your current instrument or instruments and buying new is cheaper than the service costs.

Top of the line Cyclone Lab Sample Mill

The UDY Cyclone Sample Mill is designed for rapid grinding of a wide variety of soft to medium-hard materials. It is extensively used prior to near-infrared reflectance (NIR) measurement or chemical analysis. Applications include small to medium volume milling of: pharmaceuticals, detergents, fertilizers, plastics, coal, wood chips, and friable materials.

UDY Cyclone Sample Mills use a patented method of grinding. High speed rotation of the impeller and air currents throw particles into, and rolls them around the grinding ring. Particles remain in the grinding chamber until impact-shattering and abrasion make them small enough to flow out the exit with the air current.
