By pressurizing the sample chamber up to 14bar the THMS600-PS stage can be used to investigate the effects of pressure on the sample during heating and cooling experiments. This stage has been used in applications where minimizing sample evaporation and sublimation are required.
Similar in performance to the standard THMS600 range of heating and freezing stages, the THMS600-PS also has a safety release valve that ensures the system cannot be over pressurized. A manually operated digital display pressure pump can be purchased as an option with the stage.
At atmospheric pressure, the THMS600-PS can reach temperatures of -194°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 system.
