The TS1200 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 10mm diameter ceramic crucible so that the sample is heated from underneath as well as from the sides. The new T96 controller enables the stage to heat samples at an incredible 200°C/min. Note that this stage is not suitable for samples that will flow when they melt.
The TS1200 can be ordered as a vacuum modified stage with vacuum connectors and optional MV196 motorized valve unit enabling vacuum control within the stage. Electrical connections can also be added to the TS1500 stage to enable measurement of electrical properties during heating experiments.
