Controlled Test Chamber (CTC) and Related Accessories for the HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometers

Catalog number: 603-0315

The Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MARS™ Rheometer platform features a controlled test chamber (CTC) that guarantees a sample’s temperature is reliable and accurate during rheological measurement. With two independently movable half-shells, the CTC offers:

  • Fast sample loading, trimming, and cleaning due to easy sample access
  • Ability to keep chamber closed behind the sample while still controlling temperature
  • Ability to use other temperature control modules with the CTC in “park” position

The CTC offers many valuable features for users of the HAAKE MARS Rheometer platform.
  • Combination of convection and radiation heat transfer for fast temperature changes and homogeneous temperature distribution from 30°C to 600°C (can be extended to -150°C with the low temperature option)
  • Two independent halves provide numerous advantages for convenient sample handling and optimal access:
    • Each half can be moved independently backward and sideways – no special tools needed
    • When closed, the two halves automatically center themselves around the sample
    • Each chamber is equipped with a window to observe the sample during measurement
  • A “park” position feature allows the attachment of another temperature control unit without removing the CTC
    • In the “park” position, the temperature inside the CTC can be maintained while the geometry is cleaned or the next sample is loaded
    • No time is wasted waiting for the CTC to reach its set temperature
    • The CTC's temperature range spans from 30°C to 600°C and can be expanded down to -150°C with an optional liquid nitrogen device
  • A UV Measuring Cell is available. Thermal curing is used in a wide range of applications such as powder coatings, adhesives, sealants, soldering materials and inks. Replacing thermal curing with UV-assisted thermal curing can help improve product properties, increase productivity, and reduce production costs (for example by reducing the amount of energy needed to initiate the curing reaction.)
