The Evacuable Pellet Die is a sturdy, reliable essential for the production of XRF sample pellets. However, the new Specac Apex® Quick Release Die greatly increases speed and consistency of producing sample pellets for X-ray Fluorescent Spectroscopic analysis.
The Apex® seamlessly ejects pellets after compression, especially when used in conjunction with the Autotouch automatic hydraulic press, which includes a pellet ejection stage in its load cycle software.
Unlike the classic die, which requires the user to manually detach all parts and awkwardly retrieve the pellet by hand, the Apex® presents the die without user interaction. The pellet can be easily retrieved and analysed, without risk to its quality.
|Die||Time for 3 cycles||Average for 1 cycle|
|GS26103 40mm Atlas Std XRF||13:10||4:23|
|GS26301 40mm Apex QR||9:20||3:06|
If you want the see the Apex® Quick Release Die in action, try it out yourself at one of the major analytical science trade shows coming up this year. Alternatively, visit www.specac.com to read more and arrange a meeting to demo the Apex® personally.
