To obtain truly representative results in XRF or LIBS, the samples request a fine finish – very fl at surfaces, regular and without cracks -. Therefore, the manufacture of the pellets must guarantee a high degree of cohesion and stability. The EQP-100 and EQP-200 units have been especially developed for getting the best result in the manufacture of tablets. With a robust and durable design, they are easy to manage and very effective. These are the only ones in the market to offer up to five working programs in single or double cycle. The double cycle option allows the user to program the EQP-100 and EQP-200 units to apply pressure two times during the same process, letting you digitally adjust the time and the strength, and the time elapsed between each cycle. That time is necessary, in many of the cases, to allow the release of gas trapped within the sample – this gas is generally the reason for irregularities or fissures in the pellets.- This capacity makes of them the best alternative to treat difficult samples.
Both the EQP-100 and the EQP-200 press have been specifically designed to prepare dust samples (pellets), the objective of the tablets is to be analyzed by XRF. The preparation of samples is a common technique that will allow us to manipulate and store the samples easily, as well as ensuring analytical repeatable results This technique consists in compressing the particles of the dust sample (by themselves or mixed with a binding agent) until obtaining a perfectly homogeneous pellet with a flat surface, mechanically robust and free of cracks or dust.
The EQP-100 manufactures pellets of a single size, 40 mm, thanks to a comfortable replaceable tool, the EQP-200
Pellet Press can prepare pellets of 32 and 40 mm. Other diameters under request. Its versatility allows it to work as well with different types of mould, such as square, rectangular, etc.
