IKA Tube Mill control: Comminution without the risk of cross-contamination
An important step in sample preparation in the laboratory is usually comminution. However, it often happens that residues of a sample remain in the mill. These can contaminate the next samples treated.
To prevent this, the IKA batch mill Tube Mill control was developed. In contrast to other mills, disposable grinding cups can be used here and cross-contamination can be ruled out.
Easy operation with high safety
The use of disposable grinding beakers not only prevents cross-contamination, but also saves the user a lot of cleaning effort. The mill is also very user-friendly in terms of operability. The membrane keypad is easy to handle.
Furthermore, a timer can be set and an interval mode can be switched on. Likewise, the device can be connected to other devices through a USB interface.
Another aspect with which this model convinces is safety. Firstly, the grinding bowl cannot be opened during operation. Secondly, starting is only possible when the hood of the device is closed and the grinding bowl is correctly closed as well as fixed. Thirdly, due to the labyrinth seal , no dust can escape from the grinding bowls and cause damage to the operator or the unit.
In addition to the operability and safety features, the wide range of applications is another advantage of the mill. It can be used for brittle and dry materials . It can also be used for hard laboratory materials up to Mohs hardness 5. In addition, elastic, moist, greasy as well as fibrous materials can be comminuted using dry ice.
The design of the mill is combined with high functionality. Thus, at first glance, the most striking feature is the clear OLED display, which can be used in several languages. In addition, the grinding bowl and cover are made of a transparent material. Therefore, grinding attempts can be observed from the outside at any time, which additionally increases safety.
Technical details at a glance
The most important technical details of the model are presented below. If you have any questions about this product, do not hesitate to contact us. Our team of experts will be happy to help you with individual questions as well.
The mill has dimensions of 180 mm wide x 170 mm high x 300 mm deep, so it fits well in any laboratory cabinet. In addition, it is not too heavy at 3.7 kilograms.
The speed of the device is continuously adjustable from 5,000 to 25,000 revolutions per minute. At the same time, it only has a maximum speed deviation of two percent and thus a high degree of accuracy. Due to the high speed, almost all samples can be processed in a duration of less than one minute.
The batch mill is not only highly durable during processing itself. It can also withstand temperatures from 5 to 40 degrees Celsius. Furthermore, it tolerates a relative humidity of 80 percent.
The power supply of this model has a voltage of 220 to 240 volts. Moreover, the device operates at a frequency of 50/60 hertz with a device input power of 100 watts. Thus, it can be connected to any standard power outlet.
