  • $ 4,29000
  • Save $ 20000

MSE PRO Bench Top Mini High Energy Vertical Planetary Ball Mill, 0.4L Size (4 x 100ml or 4 x 50 ml)

  • Designed for holding four 50 ml size milling jars or 100 ml milling size jars (to be ordered separately)
  • Can be placed in a glove box
  • Should not be used in an Argon atmosphere as it can cause arcing due to a 110V voltage power supply to this equipment.

Our wide range of premium quality milling jars and milling media balls have excellent wear resistance and milling efficiency for powder milling, and therefore can reduce particle sizes of powder materials quickly while minimizing the contamination from the wear debris.

The maximum loading weight on the 0.4L planetary ball mill is 4kg. When the high density and heavy tungsten carbide (WC) jars are used, only two jars can be run at the same time.
