The HT1600 measures the elastic properties and damping of samples continuously at high temperatures up to 1600 °C. Optionally the HT1600 can be delivered with a manual gas supply system, which can be used to generate a continuous flow of an inert gas (eg. N2, Ar,..) in the furnace chamber.
It’s also possible to mount a dilatometer on the system to measure the linear expansion simultaneously with the elastic properties.
