Sample grinding without moisture loss
The CM 290 CemotecTM laboratory mill is ideal for preparation of grain and seed samples without loss of moisture for NIR or reference analysis. Safety is in focus and a modern design allows easy operation and maintenance.
Ideal for NIR or reference analysis
Specially designed to grind grain and seed samples without loss of moisture making it ideal for NIR and reference analysis. Cemotec is excellent for all types of sample preparation with moderate requirements for fineness and uniformity of particle size. The large sample bottle makes it possible to collect up to 350ml of ground sample.
Safe and easy operation
Innovative design ensures safe operations. A safety switch prevents accidental operation of the mill when the lid is removed, while a handy dial is used to control the fineness of the grist. Effective sample collection ensures dust free milling.
Quiet and efficient
Cemotec works effectively at a relatively low grind rate. Grinding with a low speed makes it possible to perform sample milling at a low noise level.
Works on the principle of grinding between two discs, one stationary and one turning. The sample is introduced at the centre of the stationary disc and is crushed between the discs. The distance between the discs is easily adjusted.
Rapid sample preparation in the busy laboratory
The CT 293 CyclotecTM laboratory mill is ideal for rapid and flexible preparation of a wide variety of feeds, grains, leaves and more for NIR or reference analysis. A modern design ensures easy operation and maintenance.
Rapid, uniform grinding
Cyclotec provides rapid and convenient sample preparation for NIR and reference analysis and is excellent for all types of sample preparation when fineness and uniformity of particle size is essential. The self cleaning action enables whole series of samples to be ground with minimal cross contamination.
Flexible sample preparation operations
Dust collection options such as dust pads and external vacuum connection ensure dust free milling. The large sample bottle makes it possible to collect up to 350ml of ground sample.
Safe and easy operation
Innovative design ensures safe and easy operations. Grinding rings, screens and dust pads are easy to change, while the safety switch prevents accidental operation of the mill when open.
Grinds samples by a high speed action, rolling the sample against the inner circumference of a durable grinding surface and then passes it through a fine mesh screen. The high volume air flow provides self cleaning action, enabling whole series of samples to be ground with minimal cross contamination.
Rapid sample preparation of high-fat, high-moisture and fibrous samples
The KN 295 KnifetecTM laboratory mill is ideal for preparation of high fat, high moisture and fibrous samples prior to analysis, such as oilseeds, prepared foods, meat products, fruit, vegetables, grains, seeds and feed.
Fast sample preparation
A high speed rotor ensures rapid sample preparation from two to ten seconds, preparing up to 200ml of sample in one go. Timer control ensures reproducible sample preparation time after time.
Easy and safe to operate
The modern design ensures easy operation. A removable sample bowl with lid makes sample handling easy, while a safety switch prevents accidental operation of the mill when the lid is removed. Knifetec can be operated single handed.
Built for the job
A robust design makes Knifetec easy to maintain and clean between samples with a water cooled grinding chamber that protects heat sensitive high fat samples.
For high fat, high moisture and fibrous samples. Up to 200ml sample (30-200g).
Grinding with a high speed rotor blade and timer control ensures very fast and reproducible sample preparation time after time. Several removable rotor blade options are available for different sample types.
FOSS creates end-to-end solutions that secure and improve food quality. From raw material to finished product. Our analysis instruments refine measurements into information management that enables businesses to run intelligent data-driven productions with less waste and bigger yields. Controlling cost and quality across all sectors and value chains, we help food and agricultural producers limit the number of human errors, scale their business faster and reduce manual labor as well as labor costs. We call it analytics beyond measure.
We cover these food and agricultural industries: Dairy, Feed and Forage, Grain, Flour Milling & Oilseed Processing, Laboratories, Meat, Raw Milk Testing and Wine.
Over the last 60 years, we have made it our business to define the standard of analytical solutions for the food and agricultural industry. We pioneered advanced analysis for the challenging production environments in the 1960’s, and we were the first to integrate chemical composition analysis in process lines. Now our resolve and ambition have also made us the international benchmark in the field of chemometrics and real time analytics.
