Mini vertical planetary ball mill is a necessary device of high-tech materials mixing, fine grinding, sample making, new product development and small batch production. Tencan planetary ball mill owns small volume, high efficiency, low noise and functional features which is a ideal equipment for R&D institution, university, enterprises laboratory to get samples (you can get four samples from each grinding batch). It is possible for you to grind powder samples under the vacuum state if the ball mill is loaded with vacuum mill jars

Vertical planetary ball mill often 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 tanks 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. Smallest granularity of output powder can be achieved to be as small as 0.1μm by this kind of ball mill.


Features of Tencan Mini Size Vertical Planetary Ball Mill 

The ball mill shell is welded with thick steel plate, which has high strength, impact resistance, deformation resistance, fine workmanship, strong and beautiful appearance. The material of mechanic parts is strictly processed by heat treatment process and numerical control processing technology. The gear box is adopted with quasi-sealed groove embedded structure, and the drivegear is made of wear-resistant precision gear. The machine frame and structure are fully considered in design to ensure the stable, safe and reliable operation of the ball mill under long-term and high load conditions, and to effectively achieve the effect of noise reduction in the operation of the machine. With the touch screen of micro-computer, machine operation is becoming convenient, the interface is more simple and intuitive,forward and reversal alternating control can be achieved easily. It owns functions of timing and power-off memory.

Advantages of Tencan Mini Szie Vertical Planetary Ball Mill 

1.Stable revolving speed of the gear transmission ensures the consistency and repeatability of the experiment.

2. Planetary movement principle is adopted in the machine, which has high speed, large energy, high efficiency, small Granularity.

3. Four powder samples from different sizes and different materials can be produced at one time.

4. 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.

5. The planetary ball mill has 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.

6. Technical features of Tencan Ball Mill: Low center of gravity, stable performance, compact structure, easy operation, reliable safety, lower noise, small loss.

7. Safety switch is installed on the machine to prevent safety accident if the safety cover is opened while machine is running.
