This laboratory accessory is a rugged 40 ton press designed to automate production of pellet samples. The hydraulic power unit is electrically operated and completely self-contained. An integral safety shield with a clear, impact resistant access door surrounds the work area. For added safety, the door is interlocked with an emergency sensor which prevents press operation if the door is open. The unitized base permits convenient installation requiring less than 4.50 square feet.
Operating parameters are easily programmed with keypad entry and digital display. The ram stroke automatically opens and closes with single button control. The electronics provide for programming pressure (1/2 - 40 tons) and dwell time (0 - 999 seconds, 1 second increments and 0 - 99.9 minutes, 0.1 minute increments). The linear rate of decompression (15, 45 and 120 seconds) is managed by a three stage, selectable bleed control. An optional programmable bleed controller is available for more demanding rates of decompression.
The assembly consists of rigid side slab construction, safety shield, 5" round platen and microprocessor control system. Included is provision for vacuum line connection to pellet dies.
Press dimensions are 28"H x 31.5"W x 19.75"D. The ram stroke is 1" with maximum 7.5" daylight. Weighs 400 lbs.
CE models are available. Request a catalog for laboratory press accessories.
