IR Pellet Press
Making KBR pellets:
Cleaning the pellet press:
The main issue with the press is that the KBr is corrosive. So,
- 1. first the pellet needs to be broken out with a spatula
- 2. the steel parts are all thoroughly washed at the sink with lots of water until all KBr is washed off (it sits in the threads). Visually inspect.
- 3. Wash with distilled water, followed by acetone finishes the job.
- 4. Inspect again. Put away dry and clean.
