Soil much like other samples, requires the size reduction and homogenisation prior to subsequent analytical methods. Contamination from the grinding process is apparent. Retsch offers a range of heavy metals free accessories and powerful wear resistant ceramics to grind with peace of mind. No need to second guess unknown contaminants from the milling process.
Our extensive range of mills can be used to grind soils either wet or dry. No need to change the sample by heating or time related decomposition of analytes. You can choose from open or closed types of milling. Closed vessel milling, reduces the chance of inhalation of soil compounds or toxic substances. We also have high throughput solutions for either batch or continues size reduction of various types of soil and rock.
