Application Note: Creation of Nano-Powders with FRITSCH Planetary Mills Premium Line
20 February 2013

Planetary ball mills have long been a popular tool for the finest comminution of powders down to the micrometer range. In many industry segments, however, this is no longer sufficient. Demand now exists for the creation of nano particles (1nm = 10-9m). This application note demonstrates how the FRITSCH premium line planetary mill can be used to for the creation of nano-powders and nano-particles. The comminution of aluminium oxide (Al2O3) is presented as an example in this article.
