7 Position Heating Block

7 Position Heating Block

The 7 position heating block (7HB) can reach temperatures up to 300ºC  with a precision of ±1.0ºC. Cartridge heaters are used to control the heat applied to the block, but there is no direct cooling method. Quartz windows are mounted upstream and downstream of the sample to minimize heat loss via convection while minimizing the neutron scattering background.
