FlackTek SpeedMixer® - Grinding


The FlackTek SpeedMixer® is the most advanced piece of laboratory equipment on the market for sample preparation and is capable of grinding, homogenizing, and degassing almost any sample. All FlackTek SpeedMixers® are capable of both grinding and homogenization however, this page focusses on particle size reduction and milling applications. For Homogenization and Degassing, click here.


FlackTek SpeedMixer® grinding represents the first true innovation in grinding and milling equipment seen in years. The patent pending SpeedMilling™ technology harnesses the power of non-spherical grinding rings to create ultra efficient high energy impacts, simply unobtainable via other techniques such as mixer and planetary mills . The unique grinding ring geometries produce higher surface area impacts than traditional spherical grinding media, thereby increasing the probability of trapping/crushing material at the impact site and ultimately, the speed and efficiency of grinding. Combine this with the SpeedMixer's ability to generate a jaw dropping acceleration of 800 times that of gravity and what you get is the most powerful and efficient laboratory milling machine on the market - Leaving all other mills in the dust. 


Machine Highlights


l  VersatilityThree Grinding Machines In One



In classic orientation, the grinding rings are placed side by side in the grinding jar. This results in rapid high energy discrete impacts as the rings move across the jar in a tumbling motion      under the dual asymmetric centrifugal acceleration of the machine. 

    Concentric SpeedMilling™

In concentric orientation, the rings are placed concentrically in the grinding jar. This results in a continuous contact high surface area crushing force as the grinding rings move in a rolling        motion along the outside of the jar under the dual asymmetric centrifugal acceleration of the machine.  

    Mixer Mill SmartSnap™

This orientation utilizes SmartSnap™ grinding jars and produces a grinding action similar to that of a mixer mill. The grinding ball or balls are placed in the jar and are accelerated back        and fourth under the dual asymmetric centrifugal motion of the machine. 


l  Built To Last100% Made in the USA 


Easy Operation - Large touchscreen and intuitive user interface.


l  Efficiency   

- Typical grinding times: 30 sec - 2 min

Grind up to 3 samples at a time.

Up to 250 nameable and savable standard operating procedures.

- Up to 10 individual grinding zones per program enables the sequential execution of different speeds and times in a single operating procedure.

- Automatic jar clamping - Jars are secured via the intrinsic forces generated by the machine. No more need for tedious screw-type clamps that jam and break over time.


l  Energy Input - Heavy grinding rings and extreme centrifugal accelerations of up to 800 times that of gravity make the FlackTek SpeedMixer® more powerful than any other laboratory mill on the market.


At Form-Tech Scientific, we work hard to provide our customers with the best products available on the market. Our products focus primarily on particle comminution but we understand that the needs of our customers in processing their samples sometimes go beyond this. That is why we carry not only our own products, but those of companies that represent innovation and quality in other areas of the sample preparation/processing field.
