ProboStat Extensive System

Typical use:

  • Disk samples of varying diameters

  • Controlled atmospheres and concentration cells

  • 2, 3 and 4 electrode setups

  • van der Pauw 4-point measurements

  • Bar samples (4-point and Seebeck)

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC measurements

  • Transport number, permeability, etc.

The package comes with manuals, tools, simple mounting bench stand, etc. in a sturdy aluminium transport and storage case. The pictures show parts of a system as packed in the transport and storage case; layer with base unit, stand, tools, cables (top), layer with mainly enclosing tubes, and sample support tubes (bottom) and layer with electrode contacts, thermocouples, spring loads and gas tubes (middle).

Such a package would be suitable for laboratories which value the cost-effectiveness of direct acquirement of new techniques without trial and error and development time.

The example may also be a suitable system for a PhD or post-doc project where a large range of techniques are expected to be applied in the studies of a material or class of materials.

Possible further upgrades comprise, for instance, an extra base unit to double the throughput of measurements by using the accessories more effectively, YSZ replacing alumina in supports for certain types of SOFC work, and spare parts.

System contains (subject to minor changes upon improvements in the product)

  • base unit with all connections and options

  • 2 enclosing tubes (alumina and fused quartz) 

  • 3 alumina sample support tubes

  • 2 alumina spring load assemblies 

  • 3 gas supply tubes (alumina and fused quartz) 

  • 4 thermocouples (Pt/Pt10%Rh) 

  • 15 single and double wire Pt/alumina electrode contacts

  • spare parts

  • 8 Au seal rings and 8 Ag sealing rings

  • Coax and thermocouple cables, thermocouple plugs, and gas quick-connects

  • Manual

  • Tools, simple mounting bench stand, aluminium transport and storage case and more.

 

The  ProboStat™ Accessories Overview indicates schematically the types of electrode contacts and thermocouples that can be supplied by us. They are all included in the extensively furnished system package.
