Linkam’s THMS350V stage is based on the proven low pressure and temperature control technology developed for Linkam’s Freeze Drying System (FDCS196). The stage body and temperature control element have been modified to provide a temperature range from < -195°C up to 350°C at a vacuum of 10-3mbar* using a simple vacuum pump. Using the THMS350V, it is possible to carry out ultra low temperature experiments with virtually no gas or air contamination of the sample.
A Pirani gauge can be supplied to relay sample chamber pressure to either LINK software or via a LinkPad touch screen. By connecting the vacuum pump to the MV196 motorised valve, pressure can be quickly and accurately varied using simple on-screen software controls.
To cool samples from ambient down to < -195°C, add the LNP96 liquid nitrogen cooling pump.
This system can also be supplied with electrical connections as the THMS350EV.
