Based upon the proven low pressure and temperature control technology developed for the Freeze Drying System (FDCS196), Linkam has modified the stage body and temperature control element to extend the temperature range from -196C up to 350C at a vacuum of 10-3mbar using a simple 1.5L rotary vacuum pump.
It is now possible to carry out ultra low temperature experiments with virtually no gas or air contamination of the sample. By substituting a vacuum port for a gas valve it is also possible to first pull a vacuum and then bleed in the desired gas.
A prirani gauge can be supplied to relay the sample chamber pressure to either the Linksys 32 software or the display panel on the TMS94 temperature programmer.
By connecting the vacuum pump to the MV196 motorized valve, pressure can be quickly and accurately varied utilizing simple on screen software controls.
