New XL Cutting Mill Accepts Large Sample Pieces and Generates High Throughput

RETSCH has added a new model to their cutting mill family: the SM 400 XL is perfectly suitable for primary size reduction of very large sample pieces measuring up to 170 mm x 220 mm, but can also achieve the required final fineness in one step, depending on the application. The large surface of the bottom sieve (240 mm x 240 mm) permits processing of large sample volumes, resulting in a higher throughput than is possible with smaller cutting mills.

The high torque of the innovative 3 kW drive with flywheel mass allows for exceptionally effective primary size reduction of soft to medium-hard, tough- elastic, and fibrous samples as well as heterogeneous material mixes. The SM 400 XL even processes temperature-sensitive samples without too much heat built-up.

When operated with the optional cyclone-suction-combination the mill is also suitable for grinding light materials or small quantities.

The RETSCH cutting mill range includes three proven models for different requirements – SM 100 is the budget-priced basic model, SM 200 the universal standard model, and SM 300 is the high-performance model with RES technology. The new XL model now extends the application range to processing large sample pieces.
