CDS has developed the pyrolysis sample prep station, a complete set up where you can prepare and store everything you need to prepare samples all in one unit. Includes a wood case with drawer, 2 ceramic cutting boards (one black, one white), removable sample holder, adjustable magnifying glass with light, vacuum pump, Harris Uni-Core™, mortar and pestle. (sample handling kit not included)


Pyrolysis Sample Handling Kit for Easier Sample Preparation

Includes everything you need to prepare samples for pyrolysis. The kit contains a knife and tweezers, as well as quartz wool and tubes for holding the sample in the coil probe, plus a plunger for removing the sample from the tube after pyrolysis. Also included are three reference polymers (Kraton 1107, Nylon, and Polyethylene) with pyrograms of these materials indicating suggested operating parameters. The sample handling kit comes with a CD containing the pyrograms, pyrolysis literature, including application notes, and training presentations.

For 1/4" Probe Filaments-Part Number 0100-9014

CDS offers sample probes in a variety of sizes and configurations. Platinum filaments may be configured as either a ribbon for direct sample placement, or as a coil which takes samples placed into quartz tubes.
COIL ELEMENT-For samples held in reusable quartz tubes or boats.
RIBBON ELEMENT-For film and solvent deposited solids.
