Accurate temperature control is important for accurate QCM-D measurements. For optimal results of measurements at temperatures different from room temperature, pre-heating or pre-cooling of samples may be required. We can recommend the best temperature regulator for your application.
When taking measurements at elevated temperatures, we recommend pre-heating of samples for optimal measurement stability. Grant QBD1 is a high precision dry block heating system with digital temperature control and a single removable/interchangeable block that enables efficient pre-heating of samples.

A hot plate will be needed for measurements at elevated temperatures with the Explorer and Analyzer. We offer a hotplate suitable for the Analyzer chamber as well as for the QHTC.
