Larger diameter, customized geometries and dimensions are encouraged and available upon request
The pellet dies are commonly used with our series of laboratory presses
. Each pellet die is precision fabricated from high quality hardened 440C stainless steel. The assembly includes a die chamber, two sets of anvils(4), a plunger, stepped baseplate and an acrylic extraction ring to facilitate sample pellet removal. The die chamber dimensions are 3” H x 2.5” O. D. with a 0.75” thick stepped baseplate. Each anvil measures 0.50" thickness (two anvils are used for pellet fabrication). Add 2” for the extraction ring and a 4” plunger then account for the volume of sample matrix to calculate the overall nominal height of each die assembly.
REFLEX Analytical recommends the review of the chamber height to confirm there is adequate height to fabricate a pellet to the desired pellet thickness. If required, the chamber height and plunger length can be adjusted accordingly. Offer request for quotation and indicate the required height. Furthermore, please assure there sufficient height between the top and bottom press rams.
Tungsten carbide anvils are optional and ideal for hard or abrasive powdered sample materials which may tend to mar the surface of stainless steel anvils. Notably, the tungsten carbide transverse rupture strength is 500,000 psi and hardened Stainless Steel is 100,000 psi. Therefore theoretically, tungsten carbide offers 5x the compression strength when compared to hardened stainless steel. A tungsten carbide die chamber and die plunger are also higher cost options.CLICK HERE
