The Parr Pellet Press provides a convenient and inexpensive means for compressing powdered samples into pellet or tablet form for oxygen bomb calorimetry. Although many materials burn well as a loose powder, others such as benzoic acid must be pelletized for safe and complete combustion. A pelletized sample will: a) restrict the burning rate to a safe level, b) immobilize loose powder and prevent a possible blowout from the combustion cup, and c) permit easy handling during weighing and transfer to the bomb.
Pellets produced in the Parr press are cylindrical in shape with flat ends.
The 1/2 inch size is most commonly used for bomb calorimetry.
