Pellet Press Spares | XRF Cups, KBr Powder + More

Buy supplies for your hydraulic press

Consumable components and supplies for your FTIR or XRF sample preparation equipment. This  includes KBr Powder, XRF Sample Cups and XRF Films, Thin Film Card Holders and Aluminium Foil.

The Atlas press and die series of products are ideal for FTIR spectroscopy and X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) pellet preparation.

These spare parts compliment the Atlas set of pellet presses, which can be used for sample preparation in conjunction with FTIR spectrometers, XRF analyzers and other analysis equipment.

Manual Press hydraulic oil

1L of spare oil for your specac manual hydraulic press. Due to shipping costs it may be advisable to obtain oil locally in which case Shell Tellus 37 should be used.  

Manual Press seals and gasket set

A complete set of seals and gaskets for either a 15 ton or 25 ton press. They are only required if the press develops a leak and do not form part of any routine maintenance.

Manual Press: Conversion Kits

The low tonnage gauge kits provide an additional load gauge to be used along with the standard 15T or 25T load gauge on the press. The kit is fitted by the customer to allow both gauges to be connected to the press.

XRF Cups

Chemplex Industries XRF sample cups and holders for liquid and powder x-ray fluorescence analysis. These XRF sample cups and holders are available in a range of sizes to suit most XRF instruments, and are manufactured to ensure: compliance with RoHS directive, low trace element impurities, absence of “whitening” agents, and good chemical and physical resistance.

Boric acid for XRF

Boric Acid is available as a grinding and briquetting agent for XRF sample preparation. This is particularly suitable for processing samples with strong rewelding tendencies, and results in XRF sample pellets that are fair to moderately bonded together. When used in conjunction with other additives, it provides increased abrasiveness for the grinding process.

XRF Liquid Binder

Chemplex Industries' Liquid-Binder® is an aqueous grinding and briquetting agent available from Specac for XRF sample preparation. This is suitable for powdered samples deficient in briquette forming constituents. The sample is blended with Liquid-Binder® to form a homogenous slurry, and then the carrier is evaporated before grinding. This is then formed into a briquette in the usual manner.

Note that Liquid-Binder® contains methylene chloride and should be used in a well-ventilated area. Avoid inhalation and contact. Please send for MSDS prior to purchase.

Spectroblend for XRF

Chemplex Industries' SpectroBlend® is available from Specac as a grinding and briquetting agent for XRF sample preparation. This is suitable for grinding and blending XRF samples, as well as acting as s diluent for high sample concentrations. Grinds most samples, with suitability for samples requiring long grinding cycles in metallic vials or dishes. Available in build powder and preweighed tablets.

XRF SpectroMix powder

Chemplex Industries' SpectroMix® powder is available from Specac as a grinding and briquetting agent for XRF sample preparation. This has properties between those of X-Ray Mix® and SpectroBlend®. Ensures moderately ‘plasticized’ surfaces, and resists ‘caking’ during grinding. Generally cleans up with dry paper towel.

X-ray Mix XRF grinding agent

Chemplex Industries' X-Ray Mix® is available from Specac as a general purpose grinding and briquetting agent for XRF sample preparation. This is suitable for grinding XRF samples of moderate hardness in relatively short times, and results in XRF sample pellets that are firmly bonded together. Available in preweighed tablets.

Hydraulic Press Reviews:

  • Mini-Pellet Press: "Such a simple device to use that gives high quality KBr pellets every time....The pellet holder easily attaches to a variable temperature cell holder for VT experiments. This is one of the best lab products I have ever used for IR spectroscopy" – Martin Lemaire of Brock University
  • Autotouch Press: "Super easy to use, accurate, great value, and reliable" – Nathan Bunker of Sasol Chemicals (USA) Ltd
  • Manual Hydraulic Press: "A real lab workhorse!" – Jonathan Knowles of UCL
