Planetary Ball Mills BM 1500+ Series

Vertical Laboratory Planetary Ball Mill has four ball grinding jars installed on one turntable. When the turntable rotates, the jar axis makes planetary movements, the balls and samples inside the jars are impacted strongly in high speed movement, and samples are eventually ground into powder. Various kinds of different materials can be ground by the mill with dry or wet method.  This planetary ball mill model owns small volume and high efficiency, low noise and functional features which is an ideal equipment for R&D institution, university, enterprises laboratory to get samples (each experiment can get four samples at the same time). It gets powder samples under the vacuum state when equipped with vacuum ball mill jar.

Planetary Ball Mills machine is used to grind various different materials in laboratory

The planetary ball mill is widely used in many fields of geology, mine, metallurgy, electric industry, Construction, ceramics, chemicals, light industry, medicine, environmental protection etc.

Standard Features of Vertical Planetary Ball Mill BM1500+ Series
  • Stable revolving speed of the gear transmission ensures the consistency and repeatability of the experiment.
  • Planetary movement principle is adopted in the machine, which has high speed, large energy, high efficiency, small Granularity
  • Four powder samples from different sizes and different materials can be produced at one time.
  • The machine is controlled by frequency converter; you may choose ideal rotating speed according to expected experimental result. The converter is equipped with device of under voltage and over-current to protect the motor.
  • The planetary ball mill has integrated 5” Colour Touch Screen and all the functions of timing power off, self-timing forward and reversal rotating. You may choose freely any operation modes of one-way direction, alternation, succession, time setting according to experimental needs, so as to improve efficiency of grinding.
  • Technical features: Low centre of gravity, stable performance, compact structure, easy operation, reliable safety, lower noise, small loss.
  • Safety switch is installed on the machine to prevent safety accident if the safety cover is opened while machine is running.
