Planetary Grinding Mill is characterized by very fast and effective comminution of shear & impact micronizing. Planetary Mars Mill is ideal for lossless comminution down to extremely high levels of fineness. The grinding can take place in dry suspension. It is well suited for mixing and homogenizing emulsions and pastes or for mechanical alloying in materials research. Today, our company is one of the primary Planetary Mill Exporters and Suppliers.
‘Marshal’ Mars Mill is a vibration less compact tabletop machine useful for making small amount of all types of inks, paints, textile paste and also dry dispersion. The uniqueness of this machine is that this machine can make any formulations within few seconds. In India we are the only manufacturer of this equipment.
This equipment saves great amount of time and cost. One identical formulation made in VibroShaker takes 1 hour for below five micron grinding and the Mars Mill makes the same formulation in 286 seconds. In Marshal Mars Mill you can also test offset ink (40 poise resin viscosity), which you can make only in triple roll mill while other devices like shakers can only make liquid inks, Mars Mill can make thick paste formulations too.
In other equipment testing you have to wash your steel beakers thoroughly to prevent cross contamination which is very expensive, useless, additional cost in pigment testing. On the other hand with this machine we provide disposable plastic flacons (cups) in which you test your specimen and after taking draw downs you can throw it away because the cost of a flacon is negligible. Additionally, sometimes it happens that customers do not provide sufficient amount of pigment standard samples for testing purpose so to test in any other wet grinding equipment we need almost six times more amount of pigment than in Mars Mill. In Mars Mill we can make the batch of any formulation as small as 20 gm using less than 0.5 gm of pigment.
This mill is characterized by very fast and effective comminution (combo effects of shear & impact micronizing). It has a wide range of applications. It’s ideal for lossless comminution down to extremely high levels of fineness. The grinding can take place dry, in suspension. It is well suited for mixing and homogenizing emulsions and pastes or for mechanical alloying in materials research.
