40 mm X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF) Pellet Pressing Die Set

  • $ 54900


40 mm X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF) Pellet Pressing Die Set 

This pressing die set is commonly used for X-Ray Fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) pellet preparation. The die is made from high quality, high hardness steel, which ensures a successful compression of both ceramic and metal powders into pellet form. 

For XRF measurements, compared with loose powder, pressed pellet samples show a higher signal-noise ratio which allows the detection of the lightest elements. Commonly, 20% (total weight) of boric acid powder is mixed with samples to make a good pellet. Spectroscopic grade is recommended for the best quality pellet.

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.

To avoid rust, store the pressing die set in a dry environment and clean after each use. If you do not intend to use for an extended period of time, it is recommended to apply some oil on the pressing die surfaces to avoid the formation of rust. MSE Supplies is not responsible for rust or damage caused by improper use. Please inspect the pressing die upon arrival. Pressing dies are considered consumables, the warranty only covers manufacturing defects.
