The TC-1050 melting pot is used for melting the capping compound. The apparatus consists of a 3 litre capacity aluminium container in a welllagged steel jacket, cover and thermostatic control heating system to keep the temperature constant in the range of ambient to 200 ºC.
The TC-1054 cylinder capping frame is used to ensure that the planed end surfaces are perpendicular to the axis of the cylinder during the capping process. The frame comprises vertical supports mounted on a steel base. All three type of samples can be capped with this single unit.
