Compact, lightweight 2 ton hydraulic press for pellet, tablet, pill & capsule making

2 Ton Mini Press MPx2

2 Ton Mini Press MPx2
The Mini Press MPx2 is a compact, portable and maintenance free 2 Ton (4000 psi) hydraulic press that is perfect for fabricating any pellet or tablet geometry (circular, square, rectangular, oval, etc.) ranging in size from 2 22mm and for making thin films using the 250C integrated heated platens package.

The MPx2 permits the use of smaller non-evacuable dies and evacuable dies. Scroll below for the sizes associated with non-evacuable and hardened 440C Stainless Steel evacuable dies that can be used with the MPx2. Tungsten Carbide dies are available upon request. The Mini Presses and dies can be purchased separately. Scroll below for order details.

The Mini Press MPx2 enables the user to apply the required load for sample preparation through the simple rotation of a load knob. Accurate visual pressure readings are established with the pointer gauge which contributes to reproducibility and greater productivity. The pressure gauge eliminates the guess work commonly associated with lever action, hand operated torque wrench and bolt presses. The shorter MPx2 press configuration measures 4.33 (W) x 8.5 (D) x 10.50 (H) with maximum 50mm daylight between pressing faces and weighs only 9 pounds while the taller MPx2 press measures 4.33 (W) x 8.5 (D) x 12.50 (H) with maximum 100mm daylight between pressing faces and weighs 11 pounds.

The Mini Press MPx2 is ideal for fabricating pellets for bomb calorimetry, particularly when working with finely powdered samples. Although some powdered materials burn well in an Oxygen bomb, while others such as benzoic acid, must be pelletized for safe combustion and best results. There are several advantages by burning samples in pellet form instead of a loose powder. Foremost, some materials have dangerously high burning rates if burned as a loose powder. These rates can be restricted to safe levels by compressing the powder into a pellet or briquette. Secondly, loose powders exposed to the turbulent gases produced during a bomb combustion may be blown out of the sample cup and extinguished by the cold bomb wall before they have burned completely. A pelletized sample will be held in the combustion zone with a much better chance for complete combustion. Lastly, pelletized samples are easy to handle and weigh; they lie flat in the combustion capsule and ignite easily.

Pelletized samples are equally important in other investigative and test procedures. Laboratories engaged in pharmaceutical, biological, nutrition and spectrographic operations find frequent uses for tablets, capsules and wafers of the types that can be made in the Mini Presses. Spectroscopists find this device excellent for preparing small samples to be analyzed in an emission spectrometer.
