The MetPrep3™/PH-3™ Glove Box grinder/polisher for hot/glove-box environments is a powerful system for semiautomatic operation, ideal for low to high volume sample preparation requirements. It is designed to withstand various glovebox environments (i.e., alpha-radiation inert) and has an overall reduced size to fit through most glove box portholes. Critical components of the machine have been removed to an external (remote) control box. Removable cover/side plates allow easy access for serviceability.
Intuitive menu navigation with a user-friendly touchpad interface and backlit LCD make them easy to use and program. The microprocessor-based system allows up to 25 programmable steps, including parameters for platen speed, comp/contra rotation (sample holder/platen), cycle time, fluid selection, sample force (LbF or N), sample rotation speed, water rinse, and force reduction (on/off, %)
Either aluminum or magnetic platens may be used with any plain/adhesive-backed or magnetic system disc.
Removable side plates allow easy access for serviceability
Reduced size fits through 14" diameter port-hole (some assembly required "in box")
Programmable up to 25 polishing steps, including parameters for platen speed, comp/contrarotation (sample holder/platen), cycle time, fluid selection, sample force (LbF or N), sample rotation speed, water rinse and force reduction (On/Off, %)
Quick-change platen design, anodized to resist wear and corrosion
