BTS 150/500 – benchtop heating stages
Cost-effective attachment for non-ambient XRD
Anton Paar BTS 150 and BTS 500 benchtop heating stages are compact and cost-effective solutions for basic non-ambient X-ray diffraction experiments in reflection geometry. BTS 150 is equipped with a Peltier heating element enabling a temperature range from – 10 ºC to 150 ºC. The resistance heater of BTS 500 allows the heating of a sample from ambient temperature up to 500 ºC. Both heating stages can be used with an air, vacuum or inert gas atmosphere. A thermocouple is placed close to the sample for accurate temperature measurement and control. An optional beam knife can be used to minimize low- angle background.
