Pellet Die set for making 16 mm (0.63 inch) pellets from powders.
Free fast shipping across UK and Europe)
Die Set includes: Die sleeve, plunger rod, 2 x spacers, release ring and base plate.
16 mm die sets make pellets of a nice handleable size for a range of applications and analytical techniques so if you are making a thin bisque of material, a battery electrode or electrolyte to fit in a coin cell or running some annealing treatments experiments, the 16 mm pellet die set might be the one for you!
Die made of hardened tool steel (Rockwell hardness >C60) for long lasting trouble free performance. Sleeve is polished to high tolerances to allow the hardened tool steel plunger to slide through perfectly (see our videos). Plunger and spacers are made from high yield strength steel, machined and polished to high tolerance for the perfect fit. Interior surfaces ground to mirror-like finish.

|Recommended max loading @ 50 %||40,000 psi (275 MPa)|
|Recommended max force||11000 lb (5.5 ton, 49 kN)|
|Typical force for quality pellets||1350-4100 lb (0.7-2 ton, 6.8-20 kN)|
|Die sleeve inner diameter||16 mm (0.63 inch)|
|Die sleeve height||50 mm (1.97 inch)|
|Die sleeve outer diameter||45 mm (1.77 inch)|
|Assembled height with spacers (w/o powder)*||104 mm (4.09 inch)|
|Assembled height no spacers (w/o powder)*||84 mm (3.31 inch)|
*If making thicker pellets, the die set can operate just the same without spacers
