A cost effective hydraulic press solution for FTIR pellet preparation.
The Specac Mini-Pellet Press is an innovative low cost solution for the pressing of 7mm KBr pellets. Designed for use on a laboratory bench top, this dedicated KBr pellet press enables the user to create consistently high quality KBr pellets for transmission FTIR analysis.
Incorporating full hydraulic operation, the Mini-Pellet Press enables the user to apply the required load for sample preparation through the simple rotation of a load knob. An integrated pressure gauge enables the user to apply a reproducible load resulting in high quality KBr pellets suitable for quantitative studies. With a rugged and durable design and an innovative sealed hydraulic unit, the press is intended for daily laboratory use with maintenancefree operation.
The dedicated 7 mm diameter Pellet Die Assembly is shaped to securely locate onto the lower piston of the press and includes a pellet ring in which the sample pellet is held after pressing. Once the KBr pellet is pressed this pellet ring is simply placed onto the special sample compartment mount, locating the sample directly into the IR beam for analysis.
The press is designed to be used on a laboratory bench top, but is small in size and light enough in weight to allow it to be moved to different points of use or stored when not required.
The Specac Mini-Pellet Press is also available as part of a Basic Solid Pack.
