TP 20 E

The TP 20 E is the bench-top laboratory press for easier and more efficient preparation of pressed pellets for XRF analysis. The semiautomatic TP 20 E produces perfect pellets at the press of a button.


The pressure is built up automatically using a hydraulic aggregate instead of a hand pump. This means significant reduced physical workload, more comfortable working conditions and efficiency enhancement for the operator.


The sample material is filled into the press tool manually. The operator inserts the press tool in the machine and closes the safety input/output flap. The machine will not start until the flap is closed.

By pushing the ‘start’ button, the piston moves out until it achieves its maximum pressure force of 200 kN and the motor stops. The hydraulic system keeps the pressure until the operator pushes the ‘stop’ button to let the piston move backwards.

For safety reasons it is not possible to open the input/output flap during the complete process. The flap is released as soon as the piston is retracted completely. Then the press tool with the pressed pellet can be removed and the machine is ready for the next sample.


Various press tools for free pressing, pressing into aluminium cups or steel rings (40 mm or 51.5 mm diameter) can be used as options. A specially designed support for the TP 20 E (option) ensures a stable stand.
