How Sealed Sample Chambers Assist in Analyzing Samples in a Controlled Environment

The EnviroChamber for the Golden Gate is a top-plate option that provides researchers with a sealed chamber, allowing FT-IR analysis to take place in a controlled environment.

The system has an attached chamber, which surrounds the puck (either diamond or tungsten carbide) in the top plate’s sample analysis region. This enclosed area can be fed gas or vapor through flow tubes to provide a custom environment, or to evacuate the chamber when required. As with other systems in the Golden GateTM range, the optical unit can be provided with either KRS-5 or ZnSe lenses.  

The sealed chamber means either liquid or solid samples can be completely isolated in their own unique environment. The use of a controlled environment means the interactions between samples in certain conditions can be measured (e.g. humidity or in the presence of certain gases) and experiments can take place at any temperature between room temperature and 300 °C (when using a heated top plate).

The top plate can be removed from the optical box which means samples can be prepared under a controlled atmosphere (such as in a glove box or fume cupboard) and then sealed for analysis.
