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 (2.5mm or 6mm deep sample cups are available) so that the sample can be heated from underneath as well as from the sides. The T96 controller enables the stage to heat samples at an impressive 200°C/min.
The TS1500 can be ordered with vacuum connectors, allowing vacuum conditions to be created within the stage. Electrical connections can also be added to the TS1500 to enable measurement of electrical properties during heating experiments.
