The Cyclotec™ 1093 Sample Mill is designed for rapid, uniform grinding of a wide variety of dry samples. The Cyclotec is based on the cyclone principle for universal grinding applications in the laboratory. The grinding is carried out by a high-speed action whereas 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.
The Cyclotec 1093 Sample Mill is recommended by the Canadian Grain Commission prior to NIR analysis and approved by the AOAC (983.03) for NIR Reflectance analysis.
Accurate Grinding to count on The Cyclotec gives you the best possible chance of getting accurate analysis. The finer and more uniform the grist is, the higher precision and reproducibility. This applies especially analytical techniques like NIR, but also to conventional operations like extraction where fineness is important.
A study of the particle size distribution is available of ground wheat sample. A new holder for 500 ml sample bottle is now available. This gives the user the opportunity to grind larger samples at one occasion.
Unique Working Principle The design of the Cyclotec Mill is unique. The sample is fed on to a turbine wheel that spins at a very high speed, breaking the sample into pieces and hurling them out to the rim where they are abraded to a fine powder. The turbine also acts as a fan, so that particles of the requisite fineness are carried away with the air flow through the screen and separated in the cyclone.
