The PELCO® Pressure Pot provides an efficient way to reduce bubble formation in metallographic mounts and other cast resin, including acrylic or epoxy-embedded samples. Working pressure is 30 PSI, maximum pressure is 40 PSI with a safety release in the case of overpressure. The chamber is pressurized via a standard Schrader valve. Quick lock knobs allow the chamber to be sealed, or unsealed, in under 30 seconds.

Overall Internal Dimensions: 4.75" Dia. x 5.5" H (12 x 14cm)

With its 3-tiered design and an internal volume larger than our competitors', the PELCO® Pressure Pot enables curing of up to eighteen 1" samples at the same time. Sample curing time will vary by embedding material.

This PELCO® Pressure Pot system is highly recommended for use with our Embedding Resins to achieve water-clear mounts.

Any air or gas pump with a Schrader valve attachment can be used to pressurize the chamber. Pressure is released by pulling up on the ring on the safety valve.

The PELCO® Pressure Pot is engineered and manufactured in the USA.
