Based upon the proven low pressure and temperature control technology developed for the Freeze Drying System (FDCS196), Linkam has modified the stage body and temperature control element to extend the temperature range from -196°C up to 350°C at a vacuum of 10-3mbar using a simple 1.5L rotary vacuum pump.
It is now possible to carry out ultra low temperature experiments with virtually no gas or air contamination of the sample. It is also possible to first pull a vacuum and then bleed in the desired gas.
A prirani gauge can be supplied to relay the sample chamber pressure to either the LINK software or the LinkPad. By connecting the vacuum pump to the MV196 motorized valve, pressure can be quickly and accurately varied utilizing simple on screen software controls.
To cool samples from ambient down to -196°C, add the LNP96 liquid nitrogen cooling system.
This system can also be supplied with electrical connections as the THMS350EV.
