THMSG600 - Geology System
The THMSG600 is based on the design of the highly successful THMS600 stage and then upgraded and modified specifically for geological applications.
Unrivalled accuracy and control of temperature enable the user to characterise fluid inclusions to better than 0.1°C and hold a stability of 0.001°C. The THMSG600 has a temperature range of -196°C to 600°C.
The response time to a 'Hold' or 'Limit' command where the temperature is stable to 0.1°C is only 0.1 seconds at 30°C/min.
The sample is placed on 7mm quartz cover slip. A pure silver lid can then be placed on top to create an oven so the sample is heated from all sides, ensuring a perfectly uniform temperature.
The LNP96 liquid nitrogen cooling system is used to enable the large range in cooling rates from 0.01 to 150°C/min. This highly efficient liquid nitrogen pump, using proprietary pumps and tubing, controls the pumping rate to ensure minimal liquid nitrogen is required and a consistent smooth cooling curve no matter which rate is selected.
The new T96-LinkPad temperature controller with LCD touch screen control is used to quickly program a temperature profile by simply tapping the onscreen controls. Heating rates have also been increased up to 150°C/min to enable even faster characterisation. To control the system from the PC and capture both data and digital images, upgrade the system by adding the intuitive LINK software.
