Retsch GmbH, based in Haan, Germany, has expanded its product range with a new line of instruments for applications with large feed sizes and high throughput rates. The new equipment will be integrated into the company’s existing product line under the ‘X-Large’ brand.
The new XL models include ball mills, vibratory disc mills and sample dividers, and provide a substantially higher throughput than the company’s laboratory-scale models. The new range also includes testing equipment to determine Bond Grinding Indices.
The expansion of its range will give Retsch access to markets such as the coal, steel and mining industries, which until now could only be served with laboratory instruments for small sample volumes. Retsch, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, is now claimed to be the only supplier worldwide offering a portfolio that ranges from ball mills for nano grinding to jaw crushers with a throughput of 3500 kg per hour, thus covering the entire field of size reduction.
