For numerous applications and analytical methods, the materials used must have the appropriate grain size or fineness. Mechanical processing plays a key role. This is because the processing method must be matched not only to the base material but also to the desired target parameters.

Our laboratory is equipped with a jaw crusher and ball mill for roughly breaking up and grinding materials, as well as a vibratory disk mill and vertical wet grinding processes for sensitive materials. Agglomerations can be crushed by high-intensity ultrasound. Then, depending on requirements, various classification and screening techniques are used for specific grain sizes during mechanical processing. Our experts will also find the right method for you - get in touch with us!
