Temperature and environmental control from ambient to 1000°C



The TS1000 stage is ideally suited to the study of ceramics, metallurgy, materials and
geology at both high and low heating and cooling rates.

The sample is placed directly in the 17mm diameter ceramic crucible so that the
sample is heated from underneath as well as from the sides. The T96 controller
enables the stage to heat samples at an impressive 200°C/min. Please note that this
stage is not suitable for samples that will flow when they melt.

The TS1000 can be ordered as a vacuum modified stage with vacuum connectors and
optional MV196 motorised valve unit enabling vacuum control within the stage.
Electrical connections can also be added to the TS1000 stage to enable measurement
of electrical properties during heating experiments.
