The dies are commonly used with our series of laboratory
presses. Each die is manufactured from hardened 440C stainless steel and includes a main body with a vacuum attachment, base, (2) polished pellets, plunger, (2) vacuum "o" rings and extractor ring.
Several options are available and can be ordered separately. They include tungsten carbide pellets, a vacuum pump and a 13mm magnetic sample holder with integral mount. Tungsten carbide pellets are ideal for hard or abrasive powdered sample materials which may tend to mar the surface of stainless steel pellets. A vacuum pump is recommended to assist with the production of moisture free, clear pellets. The 13mm magnetic holder and mount permits permanent alignment with the infrared beam when performing analysis.
