General

The Model 8 vacuum press tool has already proven itself thousands of times in laboratory practice worldwide. It is particularly valued for its all-round qualities and durable, robust construction. It is indispensable for the preparation of poorly soluble substances for infrared spectroscopy and X-ray fluorescence analysis.

Powdery substances are pressed between optically polished die surfaces to form a stable, plane-parallel, homogeneous compact. The compact is easy to remove from the press tool since the die is divided into two parts. The internal press parts and die are manufactured from high-alloy hardened tool steel.

Advantages

  • Easy removal of the compacts thanks to ta divided press die
  • Die interior inserts available in steps of 1 mm
  • Universally applicable for many substances
  • Optical polishing of the die ram front surfaces for high optical compact quality
  • Can be used with and without vacuum
  • Simple and rapid production e.g. of trasparent discs made from potassium bromide and other salts
  • Optionally expandable with exchangeable and micro inserts

Options / Accessories

Exchangeable inserts for Model 8
In order to enable flexible use of the vacuum press tool Model 8, exchangeable inserts in the respective size can be individually supplemented. A exchangeable insert consists of upper die with top plate, lower die, die interior components and plunger.

Micro-inserts for Model 8
For the production of rectangular compacts, the substance requirement is only 20%, at consistant optical quality.
