Die Pellet Film
Die Pellet Film
Some powdered sample materials exhibit
tendencies to adhere to the pellet die surface
during the briquetting operation.
This condition frequently results in repeated attempts
to form a satisfactory sample briquette with increasing
potential threats of cross contamination and elaborate time
consuming clean ups.
A novel approach to resolving this problem is by using
Chemplex SpectroPellet Film in precut circles.
SpectroPellet Film is characterized with a low coefficient
of sample adhesion and resistant to puncture.
By simply inserting a SpectroPellet Film precut circle
between the die pellet and powdered sample substance, a
barrier is formed that protects the contact surfaces of the
pellet die and briquetted sample.
The unique combination of qualities of SpectroPellet Film
maintains the briquetted sample material and pellet die
surfaces intact by eliminating sample particle adhesion;
pellet die clean ups are greatly facilitated.
Each precut SpectroPellet Film circle is supported on
a paper carrier frame for convenience of handling and
application. Available in three different sizes for use with:
32, 35 and 40 mm diameter dies.

Fast, Convenient and Simple To Use
1. Place a small droplet of ordinary methyl, ethyl or
isobutyl alcohol on the center of a clean surface of a
die pellet. The alcohol serves as a temporary adhesive
for attaching a SpectroPellet Film.
2. Transfer a SpectroPellet Film to the die pellet by first
sliding a small amount of the precut circle from the
carrier frame starting from one point of the pellet and
across to the opposite end. Completely remove the
carrier frame and use as a final centering aid of the
precut film circle.
3. Repeat the procedure to the surface of the second die
pellet (or integrated die cap) and briquette the sample
in the usual manner. The SpectroPellet Film is easily
removed and clean ups are minimal.
Sample Pellet Release Agent
and Stainless Steel Die Conditioner
A simple "dusting" application to the metal pellet included with a
die set prevents the sample from sticking.
Consisting of a lubricious organic substance, PelletAid does not
introduce unwanted analyte-lines of significant detection.
When sparingly applied to the inside walls of a die set, movement of
the pellets and plunger is greatly facilitated.
PelletAid has an unusual affinity to adhere to metal components
and serves as a dry focused lubricant.
