It is an 800-ton hydraulic press. The design of the multi-anvil device consists of a retaining ring which housed six removable push wedges transmit the uniaxial compressive force of the hydraulic ram onto the faces of a cube that is assembled from eight separate tungsten-carbide (WC) cubes. The pressure chamber is designed to adopt 1" WC cube. Experiments can be performed at pressures up to 25 GPa and over 2000 ˚C.
