Sample Preparation – Grinding

Sometimes clients require small particle sizes for testing purposes. SMS can provide grinding services of energetic and inert materials for testing.  Typical particle sizes will pass through a 0.5mm sieve screen.  Material prepared can be used for sensitivity testing (e.g., impact, friction and ESD) as sensitivity test results typically change when particle size changes.  Examples of grinding BKNO3 (before and after) are shown.
