This manually operated hydraulic press allows all the compacting operations common in the laboratory to be carried out.
A special press tool available as an accessory is used to produce pellets.
The hydraulic pump is operated by a hand lever. The direction of movement of the plunger is reversed by switching over the valve to permit simple access to the dies installed.
The threaded spindle serves as a counter-bearing to absorb the compacting pressure and to reduce the no-load stroke.
