E max Nano Ball Mill
The Emax is an entirely new type of ball mill for high energy milling. The unique combination of high friction and impact results in extremely fine particles within the shortest amount of time. The high energy input is a result of an unrivaled speed of 2000 min-1 and the optimized jar design. Thanks to the revolutionary cooling system with water, the high energy input is effectively used for the grinding process without overheating the sample. Due to the special grinding jar geometry, the sample is thoroughly mixed which results in a narrow particle size distribution.
The novel size reduction mechanism of the Emax unites the advantages of different mill types: high-frequency impact (mixer mill), intensive friction (vibratory disc mill) and controlled circular jar movements (planetary ball mill) allow for unrivalled grinding performance. This unique combination is generated by the oval shape and the movement of the grinding jars. The grinding jar supports are mounted on two discs respectively which turn in the same direction. As a result, the jars move on a circular course without changing their orientation.
The interplay of jar geometry and movement causes strong friction between grinding balls, sample material and jar walls as well as a rapid acceleration which lets the balls impact with great force on the sample at the rounded ends of the jars. This significantly improves the mixing of the particles resulting in smaller grind sizes and a narrower particle size distribution than has been possible to achieve in ball mills so far.
