Experimental study on the pressure-generation efficiency and pressure-seal mechanism for large volume cubic press



Experimental study on the pressure-generation efficiency and pressure-seal mechanism for large volume cubic press



Review of Scientific Instruments 89(7): 075106



Measuring the pressure of a gasket (Pg) and cell (Pc) in situ is the key point to understanding the mechanism of pressure-generation and pressure-seal for the widely used large volume cubic press. However, it is a challenge to measure Pg due to the large deformation in the gasket zone and the complex rheological behavior of the pressure transmitting medium. Herein, a method of in situ electric resistance measurement has been developed to measure Pg. The open circuit failure in electric resistance measurement was avoided by using powder electrodes which could match the mould-pressed pyrophyllite cube in rheological behavior during compression. The relationships between press-load vs. Pc and press-load vs. Pg were obtained through in situ electric resistance measurements of bismuth, thallium, barium, and manganin. It was found that Pg exceeded Pc at around 5 GPa and Pc generated in the large volume cubic press was limited to the rapid rise of Pg above 5 GPa. Furthermore, the maximum ΔP (ΔP = Pc - Pg) above 0.9 GPa has been observed when Pc was released to a pressure range of 3-4 GPa, and this also leads to a large probability of high pressure cavity seal failure.
