Reproducible sample preparation is essential for an accurate chemical analysis. The sample must also be perfectly homogenized to an adequate degree of analytical fineness. The ability to reduce a sample to the correct scale depends as much on the nature of the material as it does on the capacity of the machine. For example, soft materials, like plastic, must be treated very differently from metals.
RETSCH offers a comprehensive range of mills and crushers capable of reducing almost any material into coarse, fine, and ultrafine particles. All of the mills, grinders, and crushers are built with high-quality components designed to interact perfectly, so that samples are reduced in a representative and reproducible way. The choice of grinding tools and accessories available through RETSCH allows the company to prepare samples from a wide variety of materials, for numerous analytical methods. Retsch also carries equipment for particle characterization, test sieves, sieve shakers, and evaluation software.
RETSCH & Verder Scientific
RETSCH was founded in 1915 to relieve scientists of the tedium of hand-grinding samples with a mortar and pestle. For over 100 years, RETSCH has embraced constant innovation and a quality-minded pursuit in designing and building the various mills and grinders in its product line. In 1990, RETSCH partnered with Verder Scientific, and in 2000, it became a one of the businesses under the Verder Scientific Division. RETSCH continues to develop techniques and methods for sample reduction and analysis that are not only accurate and reproducible, but easy to use, as well.
