Effective comminution due to highest rotor speed
The FRITSCH Variable Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line is the ideal mill for fast, effective comminution of soft to medium-hard, brittle and fibrous materials as well as temperature-sensitive samples – proven worldwide for the use in trace analysis.
Difficult-to-mill samples, or extremely temperature-sensitive samples such as styrenes, polyester, synthetic resins, films, PVC, PP and PE can be embrittled with the addition of liquid nitrogen and afterwards ground in the PULVERISETTE 14 classic line. The motor speed can be varied between 6,000 and 20,000 rpm in increments of one-thousandth – making it possible to adapt the mill to each specific application. An automatic speed compensation feature ensures an ideal adaptation of the grinding to the specific comminution behaviour of the sample. At the same time reduces the fast, effective grinding significantly the thermal strain on the sample.

Inside the Variable Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line, the sample is comminuted by impact on the ribs of the rotor rotating at a high speed and additionally sheared between the rotor-teeth and between the utilized sieve ring.
More powerful frequency converter
With a more powerful frequency converter, the modified Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line ensures that the motor output is precisely matched to the grinding material.
Your advantage: faster sample feeding, a constant rotational speed and a higher throughput. The well-designed LED display in the ergonomic operating panel with membrane keyboard, displays the speed and motor load and alerts in the event of reaching the temperature limit and overload.
Ingenious air routing
Available only from FRITSCH: The ingenious air routing of the PULVERISETTE 14 classic line ensures a constant airflow to cool the rotor, all motor components and the grinding material in the collecting vessel. At the same time, a large fan blows the cooling air into the instrument through a foam particle filter to create positive pressure that prevents the penetration of dirt particles from the ambient air.
Fast exchange of all grinding tools – easy cleaning
All grinding parts can be removed without tools with just a few motions – for quickly exchanging all grinding parts and for cleaning them outside of the instrument. The especially smooth surface of the stainless steel impact rotors simplifies a thorough cleaning – fast and easy! The wear-free labyrinth seal between the grinding chamber and the motor offers secure protection against contamination of the instrument.
NEW: temperature gentle fine grinding with the FRITSCH Cyclone separators
In combination with the FRITSCH Cyclones the Variable Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line is ideal for ultra-fine grinding of temperature-sensitive samples like powder coatings and plastic samples or for smooth pre-crushing and fine grinding of hard-brittle to soft, fatty or samples with residual moisture.
Small volume Cyclone separator: The compact FRITSCH small volume separator completely made of plastic can be dismantled completely and cleaned in the dishwasher thus reliably preventing contaminations. The comminuted sample is collected in a screwed-on sample glass of 250 or 500 ml volume. The small volume Cyclone separator can be combined with the exhaust system, which can be ordered along, or can also be used with the supplied fine-dust filter 80-100 µm for passive utilization.
High-performance Cyclone separator: Especially for the analytical sector and for the food and pharmaceutical industries is the high-performance separator completely made of stainless steel 304 in combination with the exhaust system indispensable. The exhaust system for the operation of the FRITSCH Cyclones may be ordered along.
The result: an especially fast and effective comminution with minimized thermal load with significantly higher throughput and especially fast and easy cleaning.
Temperature gentle fine grinding with the FRITSCH Cyclones separators
Regardless of whether you use the instrument as Variable Speed Rotor Mill or Cutting Mill: only the combination with a FRITSCH Cyclone separator and exhaust system for sample exhaustion delivers the optimum result.
Your advantages with a FRITSCH Cyclone separator:
– Faster throughput- Improved discharge of material from the grinding chamber
– Additional strong cooling of the grinding material and grinding parts
– Efficient size reduction of temperature-sensitive samples, electrostatically charged plastics or powder coatings
– Ideal for light materials, small sample quantities and finer sieve sizes
– Highly efficient continuous comminution of large quantities
We offer two models matching your specific applications:
FRITSCH high-performance Cyclone separator: : The FRITSCH high-performance Cyclone separator completely made of stainless steel 304 is particularly indispensable in the analytical sector and in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Due to its high surface quality, it offers enhanced resistance to corrosive media such as alkalis and acids and is especially easy to clean with a wide range of possible cleaning agents, without leaving any residues. In addition, it can be completely dismantled, fully emptied, flooded and sterilised. Your advantage: reliable protection against cross-contamination.
FRITSCH small volume Cyclone separator: The compact FRITSCH small volume Cyclone separator made of plastic with sample glass 250 ml or 500 ml is particularly suitable due to its material properties for heavy-metal- and iron-free grinding and sample preparation according to RoHS with impact and cutting rotor. In addition, it offers all advantages of the FRITSCH Cyclone separators for the size-reduction of small quantities. It guarantees absolute safety against contamination and can be completely dismounted and cleaned in a dishwasher. The small volume Cyclone separator should be combined with an exhaust system, which can be ordered along. With the provided fine-dust filter 80 – 100 μm, the small volume Cyclone separator can also be used passive for dry, free flowing samples in small quantities up to 200 ml, such as rice or maize kernels and when using medium sieve sizes.
Configure your Variable Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line exactly to your specific application
The Centrifugal Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line includes a collecting vessel and lid. In order to operate the mill, you must also order a rotor, a sieve ring, an impact bar or a pin insert – allowing you to select your grinding tools according to your specific application! To ensure this, an extensive accessory programme for the PULVERISETTE 14 classic line is available with rotors and sieve rings in various designs and materials, as well as additional accessories. Choose exactly what you need!
For grinding large quantities we recommend the special conversion kit. This allows the comminution of sample quantities of up to 1 litre in a single step without the need to open the grinding chamber and empty the collecting pan during the process.
Combine your PULVERISETTE 14 classic line with the FRITSCH Vibratory Feeder LABORETTE 24 to ensure continuous feeding of the sample during the entire grinding process, even of smallest quantities. Due to a direct connection, the mill automatically matches the sample feeding to its load state at any given moment.
