Applications: used whenever small sample quantities need to be crushed by hand without contamination.
Material is Brazilian natural gem Agate (99.91% SiO2) Resistant to acids (except HF) and solvents Useful volumes from 10 to 550 mL
The sample is ground by hand in the mortar by pressure and friction between the mortar and pestle.
- No contamination of the sample
- Extraordinarily high abrasion resistance
