Introduce an element of consistency into spectroscopic transmission applications such as KBr and thin film making by using the PIKE Auto-CrushIR—a microprocessor controlled, automated hydraulic press. Force and corresponding hold time are easily entered through its integrated touch-screen control panel. Up to five pressure hold time ramps may be programmed and performed within a run. During operation the force measurement is shown on the bright color display. Applied force is released automatically after the prescribed time. This level of control enhances the uniformity and quality of transmission samples.
The Auto-CrushIR hydraulic press has a small footprint and is equipped with a transparent protective safety shield. Vacuum and other utilities can be conveniently connected to the panel located in the back of the unit.
Also available from PIKE Technologies is the CrushIR, a sister product of the Auto-CrushIR. This is a manual hydraulic press with a digital force display. Accompanying accessories from PIKE Technologies are pellet presses, KBr, heated platens for film making, and sample holders.
