The diversity of foodstuffs with their often very different product properties represents a real challenge for food testing laboratories. Before the actual analysis, the sample materials – which can vary strongly with regards to hardness and moisture – need to be homogenized and reduced to a sufficiently small particle size. RETSCH’s GRINDOMIX knife mills are the ideal tools to meet the complex requirements of sample preparation of food. The model GM 200 has proven itself for the homogenization of smaller sample volumes of up to 700 ml. For larger volumes RETSCH now offers the new GRINDOMIX GM 300 with a grinding chamber volume of 5,000 ml.
