Mini-Pellet Press Kit

Mini-Pellet Press

The Specac Mini-Pellet Press is an entry-level laboratory hydraulic press for the preparation of high-quality 7mm KBr pellets for transmission FTIR analysis. With a rugged and durable design, this press is intended for regular laboratory use with maintenance-fee operation.

Specac’s Mini-Pellet Press is designed to be used on a laboratory bench top, but is small in size and light enough in weight to allow it to be moved to different points of use or stored when not required. Full hydraulic operation, and an innovative sealed hydraulic unit, allows the user to apply the required load for sample preparation through the simple rotation of a load knob. Reproducible load for pressing high-quality KBr pellets suitable for quantitative studies is facilitated by use of integrated pressure gauge.  

The press has an indefinite lifetime, but if a loss of pressure does occur due to adverse use, it is very easy to fix. See the below video for a brief tutorial on this.

The Specac Mini-Pellet Press is also available as part of a Basic Solid Pack. This pack is equipped with a range of sample preparation components necessary for FTIR solid sample analysis by transmission, including: the Mini-Pellet Press, a 7mm Pellet Die Assembly, 7mm Disc Holder for a standard 3” by 2” mount, a pair of spare Pellet Ring Holders, a Pestle and Mortar, and KBr Powder (50g).
