Benchtop Heating Stages: BTS 150 | BTS 500

The BTS 150 and BTS 500 Benchtop Heating Stages are the first commercial non-ambient stages for XRD studies on benchtop diffractometers. Their unique design is patented and offers all the features a benchtop diffraction application requires - compactness, reliability and ease of use!

Measurements can be performed between –10 °C and 150 °C with the BTS 150 and from ambient to 500 °C with the BTS 500. Both instruments are extremely compact in design to fit into the restricted space of typical benchtop diffractometers.
