A unique 13mm evacuable pellet die that forms a pellet within the assembly's barrel after compressing the sample matrix between two polished mandrels using a laboratory press. The mandrels are "easily" removed while the pellet
remains intact within the center of the barrel. The barrel is then placed in the path of the spectrophotometer's beam for analysis. The pellet can be dissolved with water and dried for subsequent sampling. The assembly is fabricated from hardened stainless steel and features an evacuable connection permitting interface with a source of dry air or nitrogen thereby minimizing the interference of water vapor and CO2 normally associated with infrared sampling. The simple three piece construction is a preferred alternative to other die assemblies. It can manage applied pressure up to 5 tons. The ease of assembly and disassembly speaks for itself.
