Thermal experiments

Types of experiments:
  • the use of Pt90Rh10 strip heater with S-type thermocouple: maximum temperature of 1200 °C, inert atmosphere (high vacuum, n x 10-5 Torr) for high temperatures, ambient atmoshpere for low temperatures (up to ca. 400 °C), heating rate of 0.1–5 °/s

  • experiment with the use of tantalum strip heater with S-type thermocouple: maximum temperature of 2000 °C, high vacuum (n x 10-5 Torr), heating rate of 0.1–5 °/s

  • experiment involving „boat-like” corundum crucible: maximum temperature of 1500 °C, atmosphere high vacuum
    (n x 10-5 Torr), heating rate of 0.1–5 °/s
