Temperature and environmental control from < -195°C to 600°C at high pressure



The THMS600-PS can be used to investigate the effects of pressure on the sample
during heating and cooling experiments by pressurising the sample chamber up to
14bar. It has also been used successfully in applications where minimising sample
evaporation and sublimation are required.

Similar in performance to the standard THMS600 range of heating and freezing stages,
the THMS600-PS has an additional safety release valve that ensures the system cannot
be over pressurised. An optional manually operated digital display pressure pump can
also be added.

At atmospheric pressure, the THMS600-PS can reach temperatures of < -195°C to 600°C.
At 14bar pressure, the stage has a temperature range of -100°C to 500°C. To cool
samples from ambient add the LNP96 liquid nitrogen cooling pump.
