8000D Mixer/Mill

Dual clamp, high-energy ball mill that grinds up to 10 grams of sample in each clamp

Dual High-Energy Ball Mill

The 8000D Mixer/Mill is a high-energy ball mill with dual clamps that grinds up to 0.2 – 10 grams of dry, brittle samples. It reduces samples to analytical fineness and can be utilized for mechanical alloying, slurry grinding, blending powders and mixing emulsions. Each grinding vial contains a sample and one or more balls. It is then shaken in a complex motion that combines back-and-forth swings with short lateral movements in the shape of a figure-8. The clamp’s motion develops strong G-forces in the vial, to pulverize the toughest rocks, slags and ceramics.


  • Dual clamps enable multiple sample processing for high-throughput applications.
  • Equipped with forced-air cooling and safety interlock system for operator protection.
  • Electronic timer is set for 100-minute range. Extended Running Time Chip is available for extended timer range to 175 hours (10,500 minutes).
  • Shock mounted motor enables bench top operation.
  • Steel housing protects the clamp mechanism and rugged construction ensures a long life of heavy work.
  • Vibration detection switch shuts down the mill in the event of mechanical failure.
  • Grinds multiple samples in the 0.2 – 10 gram range or mixes up to 50 mL of material per clamp. Multiple-Sample Adapters permit processing of smaller grinding vials.
