Hand Press w/ 1, 3, 7 mm Die Sets
DescriptionHand operated pellet press for preparation of 1 mm, 3 mm and 7mm KBr Pellets. read more
The PIKE Technologies Hand Press is an ideal solution for laboratories that require only occasional preparation of KBr pellets and cannot justify the expense of a hydraulic press.
The Hand Press is an efficient, reliable and inexpensive tool which simplifies making small pellets. It consists of a long stainless steel barrel and movable stage controlled by a lever capable of applying high pressure to the KBr/powder mixture. The Hand Press comes complete with three standard die sets (7, 3 and 1 mm). The pellet preparation involves loading of the powdered sample into the die chamber, placement of the upper anvil in the press and application of hand pressure to the lever (this is sufficient to provide clear, high-quality KBr disks). The Die Collar with the formed pellet is removed from the press and in most cases it can be placed directly in the beam of the spectrometer for analysis. The Hand Press is equipped with a platen position dial for adjustment of the force applied to the die for reproducible sample preparation.
