With a temperature range from ambient to 1500°C, the TS1500 stage is ideally suited to the study of ceramics, metallurgy, materials, geology and high temperature polymers at both high and low heating and cooling rates.
The sample is placed inside the ceramic sample cup (2.5 or 6mm deep sample cups available) 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.
The TS1500 has the option to be ordered with vacuum connectors, allowing for vacuum conditions to be created within the stage. Electrical connections can also be added to the TS1500 stage to enable measurement of electrical properties during heating experiments.
