E-Z Press™ 12, 15 & 20 Ton Hydraulic Laboratory Presses

ICL’s new patented E-Z Press™ hydraulic lab presses feature a unique lightweight ergonomic design. All E-Z Press™ laboratory press models weigh less than 90 pounds due to ICL’s patented unibody construction. The 12 ton E-Z Press™ laboratory press weighs a mere 51 pounds! The 15 and 20 ton E-Z Press™ will handle a variety of lab applications, including pressing KBr pellets for FTIR spectroscopy and briquetting samples for XRF spectroscopy. Ports in the walls of the lab press frame allow access for vacuum lines and electrical cords to the area between the platens, which enables use of the press with evacuable dies and heated platens. The 15 and 20 ton E-Z Press™ can also be used for making thin films with ICL’s Precision Thickness Film Maker and Heated Platens. Automated versions or our laboratory presses are available (see Air-EZ™) which are driven by pneumatic motors powered by your lab’s compressed air supply.

The newest additions to the E-Z Press™ laboratory press line are ICL’s new 1 and 2 ton E-Z Presses™. The 1 and 2 ton units offer sensitivity at low pressure levels in applications where precise control of the load on the sample is required, such as pressing pellets of intrinsic pharmaceutical ingredients for dissolution rate analysis.

All E-Z Presses™ lab presses feature built in polycarbonate safety shields with solid brass hardware. There are die centering depressions in the round bottom platens. Each press comes with a standard stainless steel filling disc to flatten the platen. The bottom platen of the 2 and 12 ton E-Z Press™ automatically centers ICL’s 13mm Macro-Micro die. The bottom platen of the 15 and 20 ton E-Z Press™ has a 4" diameter depression and optional donut shaped inserts are available to automatically center ICL’s 13mm, 20mm, 32mm, 35mm and 40mm die sets. Optional extra long handles are also available for all presses for extra leverage.
