Sample Preparation

Machines & Accessories for:




Pressing - Pelletizing

For pelletizing powder samples we supply various high precision, evacuable die sets (press tools) made from hardened stainless steel with 2 mirror polished press plates and an extraction tool. These dies can also be loaded with tungsten carbide (WC) press plates, recommended for very abrasive sample material. Stainless steel die sets are available for 32, 35, 40 and 45mm diameter pellets.

Furthermore we offer a simple and economic die set made from hardened tool steel with 1 polished press plate and an extraction tool in size 32 and 40mm.

For grinding and pressing of the sample material we offer various grinding- and pressing additives in form of powders and tablets. Briquetting of the samples is most commonly done in tapered aluminium or plastic pellet cups, giving more strength and protection to the powder pressed pellet and allowing marking of the sample. Most common are 40mm Al-cups, we supply 2 types with different filling height. Please ask for a test sample.
