The grinding jars are arranged eccentrically on the sun wheel of the Planetary Ball Mill. The direction of movement of the sun wheel is opposite to that of the grinding jars in the ratio 1:-2 (or 1:-2.5 or 1:-3). The grinding balls in the grinding jars are subjected to superimposed rotational movements, which cause the so-called Coriolis forces. The difference in speeds between the balls and grinding jars produces an interaction between frictional and impact forces, which releases high dynamic energies. The interplay be- Planetary Ball Mill technology tween these forces produces the high...

Planetary Ball Mills 6 Benchtop models PM 100, PM 100 CM and PM 200 Type PM 100 The convenient benchtop model with 1 grinding station for grinding jars with a nominal volume of 12 to 500 ml. Both PM 100 models feature Free- Force-Compensation-Sockets (FFCS) which ensure a safe low-vibration run and minimal oscillation transfers to the laboratory bench. Type PM 100 CM The PM 100 CM operates in centrifugal mode, i.e. the speed ratio of sun wheel to grinding jar is 1:-1 (PM 100: 1:-2). This results in a different ball movement which leads to a more gentle size reduction process with less...

Planetary Ball Mills 7 Floor models PM 400 and PM 400 MA Type PM 400 The robust floor model PM 400 with 4 grinding stations for grinding jars with a nominal volume of 12 to 500 ml. It can grind up to 8 samples simultaneously down to the submicron range thus generating a high sample throughput. The PM 400 is also available with 2 grinding stations. The freely selectable speed from 30 to 400 min-1 in combination with an effective sun wheel diameter of 300 mm allow for a particularly high energy input. Thus, the PM 400 produces samples with analytical fineness in no time. Type PM 400 MA To...

The working principle of the Planetary Ball Mills is based on the relative rotational movement between the grinding jar and the sun wheel. In addition to the sun wheel diameter and speed of rotation this speed ratio is decisive for the energy input and therefore for the results of the size reduction process. The higher the speed ratio, the more energy is generated. There are Planetary Ball Mills with different speed ratio settings. For example, a ratio of 1:-1 means that Speed ratios each time that the sun wheel rotates the grinding jar also rotates exactly once in the opposite direction...

In addition to the instrument settings, the filling level of the jar is also of crucial importance for a successful grinding process in Planetary Ball Mills. For grinding bulk materials a jar filling should consist of about 1/3 sample and 1/3 ball charge. The remaining third is the free jar volume that is necessary for the free movement of the balls.
