The 5100 Mixer/Mill is a small high-energy ball mill that pulverizes small amounts of hard, brittle samples to analytical fineness. It accommodates sample sizes ranging from 0.2 - 1.5 grams. The vial, which contains a sample and one or more balls, is shaken in a complex motion that combines back-and-forth swings with short lateral movements, each end of the vial describing a figure-8. The clamp's motion develops strong G-forces in the vial, to pulverize the toughest rocks, slags and ceramics.

Applications include: Mechanical alloying, slurry grinding, blending powders and mixing emulsions.

Typical samples include: Rocks, Minerals, Sand, Cement, Slag, Ceramics, Catalyst Supports, Glass, Pharmaceuticals, Plant Tissue and Animal Tissues and Seeds.
