HTK 16N – high-temperature chamber
For fast heating to 1600 ºC
Anton Paar HTK 16N is a strip heater chamber designed for in situ powder X-ray diffraction in reflection geometry at temperatures up to 1600 ºC in vacuum, air or inert atmosphere. Depending on the experimental requirements, various types of heating strips (Pt, Ta, graphite; others on request) can be mounted inside the chamber. Due to the direct sample heating the heat-up rate with a Pt or Ta strip can be as fast as 400 ºC/min. The design of the chamber is optimized for a minimum temperature gradient along the heating strip and for maximum position stability of the sample. Two thermocouples are available for accurate temperature measurement and control. Optionally a beam knife can be placed above the sample for improved background at low angles. The HTK 16N is suitable for XRD studies of both organic and inorganic materials.
XRD at high temperatures with very fast heating
The design of HTK 16N is optimized for in situ powder X-ray diffraction in reflection geometry, for the study of dynamic structural changes, phase transformations, chemical reactions, annealing and aging processes at temperatures up to 1600 ºC.
