Air-EZ™ Air Powered 15 & 20 Ton Automated Lab Presses

The Air-EZ™ laboratory press, adds automation to the patented unibody design that enables ICL to make the E-Z Press™ so light and ergonomic. The press is driven by an elegant and quiet pneumatic motor that runs off of your lab’s compressed air supply or most commercially available air compressors. No physical effort whatsoever is required. The press jacks up to its rated capacity of 15 or 20 tons in a mere 5 seconds. Ports in the walls of the 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 or heated platens. The Air-EZ™ lab press is suitable for many lab applications, including KBr pellets and XRF briquettes. It has a footprint that is less than one foot square and weighs only 130 pounds. If you dread pumping up a manual press or crave lab space, this is the solution. Higher tonnage versions are available and the press is available with heated platens and our Precision Thickness Film Maker as a Film Maker Kit.
The 15 and 20 ton Air-EZ™ laboratory presses feature built in polycarbonate safety shields with polished brass hardware and a die centering depression in the round stainless steel bottom platen (see Fig. 1). The press comes with a standard 4" diameter stainless steel filling disc to flatten the platen (see Fig. 2). Optional donut shaped inserts are available to automatically center die sets with a variety of base diameters.
