Carver Bench Top Standard Unheated Presses: 12, 25 and 30 Ton Capacity

Models 4555 and 4565 Bench Top Laboratory Pellet Presses

Model 4555 Bench Top Lab Press.

These Pellet Presses have a 4" round platen which has centering grooves for proper die alignment. Like the 4350 Series, they both come in two model choices; with or without the die set.  Both Model’s 4555 & 4565 come with a 31mm (3902) die set and the Model’s 4555.L & 4565.L do not come with a die. These two models have a heavy-duty extended base frame with a die storage cavity. Rugged construction to eliminate deflection. Also, an extended daylight opening and stroke for procedures requiring high compaction ratios.  (picture shown with analog gauge, less die set)
