Pellet Die set for making 15 mm (~5/8 inch) pellets from powders.
With your die set order we’ll include:
- Die sleeve
- Plunger rod
- 2 x spacers
- Base plate
- Aluminium release ring with cutout for viewing pellet during release
Shipping: Free fast shipping across USA and Canada
Material: hardened tool steel (Rockwell hardness >C60) polished to a high tolerance fit.
15 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 15 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.
|Yield Strength Hardened Steel||80,000 psi (550 MPa)|
|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||15 mm (0.59 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.
- Always wear googles and safety protection equipment
- Clean well after use to prevent rusting.
- Do not apply pressure beyond shown on table.
