2.0" (50 mm) Diameter Dry Pellet Pressing Die Set

The 2.0" diameter dry pellet pressing die set uses pressure to compress powder into 2.0" pellets. The die is made from high quality, high hardness carbon steel, which ensures a successful compression of both ceramic and metal powders into pellet form. A common use of pellet pressing die sets is to create pellets of potassium bromide (KBr) for use in infrared spectroscopy. Additional uses for laboratory pellets can be found in the minerals, ceramic, or pharmaceutical industries.

In order to grind the desired materials into the correct granularity of powder (from millimeters to microns), we recommend using either our powder processing ball milling products & accessories or our agate mortar & pestle sets.
