Sample Mills

A broad range of grinding applications

FOSS sample mills cover a broad range of sample preparation applications for both traditional wet chemistry and near infrared analysis.  The range includes; CM 290 Cemotec™ Mill for grinding solid samples without moisture loss; the CT 293 Cyclotec™ Mill for uniform grinding of dry samples the KN 295 Knifetec™ Mill for the preparation of high-fat, high-moisture and fibrous samples; the Hammertec™ designed for crushing samples for falling number and wet gluten analysis and the HM 294 and 297 Homogenizers for rapid homogenization of larger samples with a high fat or oil content.

CM 290 Cemotec™ Sample Mill

This mill crushes the sample using the tried-and-tested principle of grinding between two discs, one stationary and one turning.
The sample is introduced at the centre of the stationary disc and is crushed between the discs. A handy dial adjusts the distance between the discs to control the fineness of the grist.

CT 293 Cyclotec™ Sample Mill

This mill is based on the cyclone principle for universal grinding applications in the laboratory. The grinding is carried out by a high-speed action where the sample is rolled against the inner circumference of a durable grinding surface and passed out through a screen. The high grinding capacity reaches 4 g/second and the recovery of the sample is complete.

KN 295 Knifetec™

Equipped with a grinding chamber cooling feature which is connected to a cold water tap or other laboratory chilling device to prevent samples containing high levels of fat sticking to the wall of the chamber as the fat softens during grinding. The cooling option also stops fibrous samples generating heat due to friction. Removable sample bowl with lid ensures easy sample handling.

HM 297 Homogeniser

HM 294 and 297 Homogenisers

These sample preparation mills provide a reproducible degree of homogenization through a powerful high-speed cutting action. Angled knife blades produce a vertical flow within the batch and facilitate rapid and thorough homogenization in 20 to 60 seconds.

Mills for all analysis types

The FOSS sample mills prepare samples of all kinds for high fat, high moisture, solid or dry testing. In short, if you have the sample, we have the sample mill.

Good results start with sample preparation

Errors caused by analytical instruments are minor compared to the errors associated with sample preparation. FOSS sample mills are designed to create the highest levels of reliability and reproducibility in analysis.
