What would I use a Grindomix for?

Why would I contact Retsch about a Grindomix?

Results! The Grindomix meets and exceeds all special laboratory and analytical requirements and is a professional device superior to any commercial household mixer.

How are the results achieved?

With either 2 or 4 sharp, robust blades and a powerful motor perfectly homogenous samples of up to 4.5L are achieved very quickly! All contact parts are fully autoclavable.

For samples with specific characteristics, the Retsch Grindomix has innovative solutions:

  • Liquid/wet samples – The use of a Grindomix gravity lid reduces the mill’s chamber by floating on the surface of the sample.
  • Samples containing volatile components – These can be ground with dry ice to avoid the warming of the sample during grinding. This may produce an even greater degree of homogeneity as the sample is embrittled which improves the breaking properties of the sample.
  • Samples that are permanently thrown upwards – The interval mode allows the sample to settle so that all of the sample is submitted to the grinding process
  • Harder products – A reverse mode allows the back of the blades to submit the sample to preliminary size reduction to preserve the blade’s sharpness. A stainless steel container can be used to minimize wear during long-term use.
  • Repeat samples – For identical samples that are processed regularly, the Grindomix has up to 10 standard operating procedure presets.

What are the benefits of the Retsch Grindomix?

  • Perfect, homogenous samples
  • Reproducible results
  • No cross-contamination
  • Safe and secure operation
  • Flexible for many foodstuffs
  • Long service life
