TP102 Series Vacuum & Gas Tight Thermal Plates
Instec's TP102 Series are Thermoelectric Cooler (Peltier) based thermal plates, which can cool down to -40°C without using liquid nitrogen or a circulation chiller. This is very convenient for performing long duration experiments at cold temperatures. It also simplifies the system set up and reduces operating costs. The "G" type plate provides a closed sample chamber for gas purge to avoid condensation or oxidation. A vacuum version is also available.
