Models and Accessories
The type of sample preparation depends on the requirements in the analysis to be made. For this reason, it is important to select the correct preparation for the analysis in question. Perten Instruments can offer two types of Laboratory Mills, the hammer type mill and the disc type mill. Disc mills are used when grinding samples for moisture determination, whereas hammer mills are used for most other applications, such as Falling Number, Glutomatic and NIR analysis for example. Read more about hammer mills and disc mills on the page "Technology".
We hope that you will be able to find a model that suits your needs, and recommend that you use the "Model selection guide". Don't hesitate to contact Perten Instruments or your local representative to discuss your needs.
Laboratory Mill 3100
LM 3100 is a hammer mill with a robust metal construction built in an insulated for low noise level. It is suitable for grinding for Falling Number, Glutomatic, Kjeldahl and NIR analysis. It has a cyclone sample outlet for convenient sample collection, which also makes the mill virtually self-cleaning between grindings.
Laboratory Mill 120
This is a simpler hammer mill with robust metal construction. The sample is collected in a nylon bag. It is suitable for the same applications as the LM 3100.
Laboratory Mill 3310
is a disc mill specifically designed for grain moisture analysis and is approved for both oven and NIR moisture tests. It is also adopted by AACC, standard methods No. 55-30 to determine wheat hardness by PSI (Particle Size Index). It can grind samples of up to 50 grams.
Laboratory Mill 3610
A larger disc mill also approved for oven and NIR moisture tests. is also well suited for grinding large size material such as feed raw material, pellets etc. The LM 3610 can grind larger samples than the LM 3310.
A motor driven rubber paddle Mill Feeder can be added to provide a consistent feed rate. This improves grinding of high moisture grain and grain with the hull remaining, e.g. barley, oats and rice. The constant feed rate also improves overall mill performance and reduces motor strain caused by overfeeding of the sample.
