The Planetary Mill PULVERISETTE 5 premium line provides two stations of grinding bowls with 500 ml volume (largest capacity on the market). Each grinding bowl can be filled 1/3 part of the volume (± 170 gr sample). So, if we use two grinding bowls, the optimum capacity is about 170 x 2 = 340 g per milling process. 3.
