Paul O. Abbe® has been designing and manufacturing Laboratory Mills since 1911.
Laboratory Mills are simply smaller version of ball mills and are used for size reduction from lab scale R&D to production of critical materials.
Laboratory Mills utilize a pair or pairs of steel roller with a thick machined polyurethan coating for smooth operation. Jar or contains are rotated at controlled speed for size reduction, mixing or maintaining suspensions.
Laboratory Mills are commonly used for fine size reduction of advanced ceramics, glass frit, carbon black solar cell silicon materials, rare earth minerals, battery materials and recycling of batteries and circuit boards.
Laboratory Mills are also used for maintaining suspensions in a simple portable air-tight containers while avoiding agitators, seals and drain valves.
Laboratory Mills are used for size reduction of all solids in dry or wet state down to 1 micron.
Laboratory Mills are contained so hazardous and toxic material can be size reduced without exposing operators to the materials during the milling operation.
Laboratory Mills can be used with milling jar or containers from 0.1 gallon to 3 gallons.
Laboratory Mills can be designed with variable speed controls, rpm indicators, run timers, vapor hood and internal heating or cooling.
