Temperature and environmental control from ambient to 1000°C


Linkam’s CCR1000 stage has been designed to study catalytic reactions at high temperature and pressure. Samples are mounted on virtually unreactive disposable ceramic fabric filters placed inside the ceramic heating element which is capable of heating samples from ambient to 1000°C at rates of up to an impressive 200°C/min.

The CCR1000 has been designed to ensure the majority of components in direct contact with the sample and carrier gases are as unreactive as possible. Corrosive gases can be used but these may have an impact on the overall life time of the heater and the maximum temperature achievable.
A variety of different lid window materials are available so that brightfield and Raman microscopy techniques can be used.
