Couldn't make pressed pellets without it


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Making pressed pellets for XRF samples

A very useful piece of kit. Samples are mixed with cellulose binder and loaded into aluminium boats. These are pressed flat in the PP40 to make pressed pellet samples for XRF analyses. The same pressures and loading times can be used every time for consistent sample preparation.

With the PP 40, RETSCH offers a pellet press that produces strong pellets with a smooth surface. The PP 40 features an individual pressure force regulation in the range of 5 to 40 t. Besides controlling the pressure force, it also determines the time of build-up, holding, and release of force during pressing. This reduces the inner tensions of the sample and ensures that even difficult materials are pressed perfectly.


  • cement, minerals, ores, raw materials, slag, ...


  • individual pressure force adjustment up to 40 tons
  • pressing in steel rings, aluminum cups and free
  • automatic pressure force control
  • pressing tools for various diameters
  • 32 SOPs can be defined and stored for routine applications
  • comfortable parameter setting via display and ergonomic 1-button operation
