Maassen Pellet Press MP150 (Analogue) & MP150D (Digital)
The standard MP150 has a pressure gauge with 80 mm diameter and a scale of 0.5 tons. This is suitable for many applications, especially with the common 13 mm die sets for IR purposes.
The MP150D with its digital display shows pressure differences in 10 kg steps (0.01 tons). So you can precisely check the load on your die set. This makes sense for very small die sets which usually don't stand high loads.
We recommend a minimum pressure of about 1 ton to allow the hydraulic lines to close. Then, the press can maintain the load for hours. The maximum load is limited to 15 – 16 tons. For die sets larger than 18 mm, you need to prove if the surface pressure is high enough to get solid pellets.
The manual release valve allows a smooth pressure decrease to avoid cracks in your pellets.
The MP150D can be combined with an adjustable pressure limiter (p/n: MP-S1) to set the maximum load individually. It can be programmed with the buttons at the display. This saves samples and dies from over load and allows reproducible samples. This setting is saved, even when you turn off the display.
With the serial connector, you can send the press data to your Computer (p/n: MP-DA1).
