The water cooled heated platens have a 4" (100mm) diameter aluminum pressing surface that will heat a sample from ambient to 400°C in less than 15 minutes. The heated platens are controlled by a stable (±1°C) CE marked digital PID temperature controller. The integral water cooling facility reduces cooling times. A removable thermocouple monitors temperature close to the surface of the platens. This accessory is compatible with ICL’s 20 ton E-Z Press™ and 20 ton Air-EZ™ and is available as part of polymer film maker kits with those presses (0012-6631 and 0012-6681), and the Precision Thickness Film Maker (0012-4608). The heated platens can also be used with ICL's 2 ton High Profile E-Z Press™ (0012-8393) and the 5000 pound load cell E-Z Press™ (0012-8379). When ordering for use with an existing ICL Press, order a special lead screw assembly (0012-6665) for raising and lowering the top platen.
