I am looking to buy, or otherwise acquire, a roller mill. This consists of
an array of rollers on top of which jars with steel rods rotate and
pulverize/homogenize sample materials to a fine consistency. I have been
given some basic plans on how to build one, but don't really have the time
and maybe ability to get one built fairly quickly.
I am also open to other suggestions for dealing with a few hundred soil
samples to be prepared for d13C analysis of soil organic matter. Are there
any mills/grinders that might be good for this and maybe plant material?
Our Wiley mills are ok for plants, but mortar and pestle is the unfortunate
method we have used in the past for soil and after processing a few
hundred, repetitive stress becomes a very real issue.
We have used a Wig-L-Bug from Crescent Dental for small samples, but this
was pretty useless, seemed to self destruct with each use.
Thanks for your help.
