Evacuable Pellet Dies
Specac manufactures a wide range of high-quality Atlas Series Evacuable Pellet Dies suitable compacting powdered samples into discs or briquettes. These are particularly well suited for the preparation of solid KBr pellets for FTIR molecular spectroscopic analysis and XRF pellets for X-Ray Fluorescence atomic spectroscopic analysis (as required by a number of USLP and ASTM methods), but also find use in a broad range of other applications. Atlas Series Evacuable Pellet Dies are typically used in conjunction with the Specac’s Atlas Series of Hydraulic Press Products.
These Evacuable Pellet Dies produce circular pellets in sizes from 5 mm to 40 mm diameter as standard, but other shapes and sizes are available on request. These pellet dies cover a range of load capabilities. For optimum quality and durability of the pellet die, all parts are manufactured from hardened stainless steel, and surfaces that come in contact with the sample are highly polished. Each Pellet Die comprises an evacuable base, body, plunger, set of pellets, extractor ring, and O Ring Kit.
Atlas Lightweight Dies
The Atlas™ Lightweight Evacuable Pellet Dies have been specifically designed to work with the range of Atlas™ automatic presses up to a maximum load rating of 25 tons. The dies are also compatible for use with Specac's 15 and 25 ton manual hydraulic presses.
They are well suited for the preparation of solid pellets for study by X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy. When many samples are prepared for study, the physical effort required to load and remove an Atlas™ Lightweight Evacuable Pellet Die into a press is greatly reduced, as the dies themselves are physically smaller and lighter in weight by comparison to the conventional 32mm and 40mm pellet dies.
