MK Pellet Press

Our MK Pellet Press is an excellent hand press for making KBr and other pellets for measurements by transmission spectroscopy. The MK Pellet Press is a superior, inexpensive hand press. Its non-rotating, highly polished, hardened stainless steel dies produce scratch-free pellets.  The Pellet Press features an evacuation port, so water can be removed from the sample prior to pressing.  The pellets can be readily extracted from the press without breakage or left in the barrel for analysis.  The Universal Transmission Holder or equivalent is recommended for supporting the pellet or barrel in the spectrometer beam.
