Recent review highlights of the Manual Hydraulic Press

"I still use this hydraulic press after two years"

I'm using this equipment to synthesis and analysis many compounds and alloys, and I got good pressing of it. I've used this hydraulic press for two years.

Application area: Manufacturing of compounds and alloys

"Great press, easy to use"

This press is better than the other ones I've used--you need a lot less pumps to get the proper pressure. Also the circular markings on the hydraulic stand makes it easy to center the dyes.

Application area: Synthesis of solid-state samples in pellets

"Easy to use, Excellent support"

The manual press was easy to use. I have been using it for more than six years now and it never failed to help me in the IR spectroscopy... I have contacted the technical support two times till now and they were of a great help.

Application area: Pharmaceuticals

"Compact, efficient, and reliable"

Hydraulic press works like a dream. I use the press in conjunction with the heating platens to melt press ion exchange materials together. In the past I had used a muffle furnace and a C-clamp to do this and I had to make 5-10 samples to get 1 good sample. With the press the prepared membranes work nearly every time with much greater control over the experimental conditions.

The machine is very easy to use the one thing I would change it add an indicator for the maximum pressure release. It made my life as a graduate student so much easier, as it gave me a facile and repeatable method for processing my materials. I give tours to perspective students and I always say that the press is the only machine on campus that will work every time you use it.

Application area: Processing of polymeric membranes
