Pellet Die set for making 10x10 mm (~0.39x0.39 inch) square pellets from powders.
With your die set order we’ll include:
- Die sleeve
- Plunger rod
- 2 x spacers
- Base plate
- Aluminium release ring with cutout for viewing pellet during release
Shipping: Free fast shipping across USA and Canada
Material: hardened tool steel (Rockwell hardness >C60) polished to a high tolerance fit.
This set can be used for making 10x10 mm square briquettes.
Whilst dies steels are chosen for tolerating high stresses and pellet dies are heat treated fro superior properties, you can easily exceed even these high yield strengths with a hydraulic press with a few pumps of the handle.
Die made of hardened tool steel (Rockwell hardness >C60) for long lasting trouble free performance. Sleeve is polished to high tolerances to allow the hardened tool steel plunger to slide through perfectly. Plunger and spacers are made from high yield strength steel, machined and polished to high tolerance for the perfect fit. Interior surfaces ground to mirror-like finish.

|Yield Strength Hardened Steel||80,000 psi (550 MPa)|
|Recommended max loading @ 50 %||40,000 psi (275 MPa)|
|Recommended max force||4800 lb (2.4 ton, 20 kN)|
|Typical force for quality pellets||600-1800 lb (0.3-0.9 ton 3-8 kN)|
|Die sleeve inner space||10x10 mm (0.39x0.39 inch)|
|Die sleeve height||40 mm (1.57 inch)|
|Die sleeve outer diameter||45 mm (1.77 inch)|
|Assembled height with spacers (w/o powder)*||89 mm (3.5 inch)|
|Assembled height no spacers (w/o powder)*||73 mm (2.87 inch)|
*If making thicker pellets, the die set can operate just the same without spacers.
- Always wear googles and safety protection equipment
- Clean well after use to prevent rusting.
- Do not apply pressure beyond shown on table.
