In stock
Item Number: MSKSFMGB
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)
MSK-SFM-GB is a compact planetary ball mill with the separated control unit, which is designed to use inside the glovebox.  The ball mill with four jars driven by 24VDC motor can be located inside the Ar gas filled glovebox and control unit with a color touch screen is located outside the glove box via KF40 feedthrough.  Four milling jars are optional from 50ml to 100 ml and can mill 4 kinds of material in the same time.  It excellent ball mill for preparing air-sensitive or N2 sensitive powders.

  • Compact design separated control unit from ball milling machine for easy use in a standard glove box.
  • 24VDC motor-driven four milling jars are compatible with the Ar gas environment.
  • Large touch screen controller allows easy programming for multi-step speed-up/down milling/grinding, rotating direction, timing control, and cycling
  • Efficient grinding benefits from the high centrifugal force and pulverization energy
  • Suitable for mechanical alloying, mixing, homogenizing, pulverizing

Touch Screen Control

  • Digital display and inputs for speed and time
  • Up to 10 recipes can be stored
  • Max. 5 segments speed control per recipe, up to 10 Cycles
  • Rotation direction selectable, clockwise-anticlockwise
Material Feed Size Crispy materials< 10mm (Others<3mm)
Material Output Size
  • Wet Milling < 1um average
  • Dry milling < 20um average
Note: The output granularity is dependent on the material physical properties such as size, milling media, and processing time. Minimum granularity can be as small as 0.1 um according to the customer's feedback.

   Application Notes
  • SS304 mixing jar is suitable for grinding various metal materials
  • For milling oxide material, please choose alumina / Nylon jars and zirconia media. DO NOT USE stainless steel balls in Alumina jars. 
  • Must place 4 or 2 jars in symmetrical with similar weight in the ball mill to keep balance during rotation. If using one jar, another jar with the same weight must be put to the symmetrical position for counterweight.  Otherwise, unbalance rotation may damage the machine, especially in the one-jar situation.
