Transform powdered samples into firm durable solid briquettes protected on all sides except for the surface to be analyzed. Minimizes potential hazards of breakage, easy to handle and introduce into briquetting dies. Simply fill a PelletCups® briquetting cup with the powdered sample substance, place into die and briquette in usual manner.
Select from Tapered-Walled PelletCups® Briquetting Cups in Aluminum or Plastic
Tapered-Walled, Aluminum PelletCups® is a Chemplex innovation and represent the most popular and versatile devices for briquetting a wide range of powdered samples under diversified pelletizing conditions. The tapered wall design tends to reduce cracking and fissure development. Very close outside diameter tolerance minimizes sample particles spilling over and becoming entrapped in between the inside walls of the die and PelletCups® briquetting cups outer diameters. Filled PelletCups® briquetting cups gently float down into the die set cavity on a cushion of entrapped air further reducing likelihood of spillage.
Tapered-Walled, PlastiCup® Briquetting Cups are similar to their "ORIGINAL" aluminum counterparts except they are fabricated of a specialty plastic, shallower and accommodating less sample volume. Lubricious plastic quality helps extend die life by resistant-free pellet ejection.
Tapered-Walled, 13mm Aluminum PelletCups® Briquetting Cups are incorporated in the Chemplex® standard product line for use in conjunction with standard 13mm diameter briquetting die sets. The main use of 13mm diameter samples is traditionally associated with IR analytical applications that heretofore require a backing agent such as boric acid, X-Ray Mix® or SpectroBlend® powders to provide mass to the sample substance. By completely encasing the sample material within the confines of the PelletCups®, the briquetted samples are substantially more resistant to damage through handling and conducive to preservation for future referral.
Note: For best results and close tolerances, use with Precision Fabricated Chemplex® Stainless Steel Die Sets
