Retsch has further perfected the compact bench-top model of the jaw crusher series. The new BB 50 offers many features that ensure efficient and convenient usage. The speed can be set between 550 and 950 min-1 to allow for perfect adaptation to sample requirements. Another advantage is the zero-point adjustment which helps to compensate for wear of the breaking jaws. Operating the BB 50 is simple and safe. The large hopper facilitates material feed, the capacity of the collecting receptacle has been oubled. The fold-back hopper can be easily removed without using tools, just like the crusher arm. The breaking jaws can be replaced by the user as well.
The space-saving unit fits on any laboratory bench and crushes small sample volumes with a feed size of up to 40 mm to a final fineness of approximately 0.5 mm, depending on material properties. Breaking jaws and wearing plates are available in five different materials, which ensures neutral-to-analysis sample processing.
