An Induced Percussion Electrode Packing Machine
Abstract:An induced percussion electrode packing machine is described. Using this packer more material (on weight basis) can be packed into an electrode cavity than is possible by hand, or using a vibrational type packer. The amount of material packed into the electrodes depends on the size of the electrode cavities and weight of the plunger. For some materials the reproducibility of the amount of material packed is better than 1%. Electrodes packed with the machine give superior spectrochemical results when compared with results obtained when the electrodes are packed manually.
