Product News: New Portable Thermal Jackets Available for Long-Path Heated Gas Cells from PIKE Technologies

22 Mar 2013

All PIKE Technologies long-path gas cells are now available with new portable thermal jackets that integrate high capacity heaters with efficient insulation layers. The temperature sensor is located in the gas cell chamber for optimum measurement accuracy. Temperatures can be controlled via PC or a dedicated digital controller with set-point and temperature ramping capabilities. Temperature range is ambient to 200 °C.

The fixed-path gas cells’ options include path lengths from 2.4 m to 20 m and a 1 m to 16 m adjustable gas cell is also available. All cells feature diamond-turned, gold-coated mirrors for optimal reflectivity and best possible energy throughput. Glass- or nickel-coated aluminum bodies are available and other materials can be quoted if needed.

PIKE gas cells have been designed for easy maintenance and cleaning. They can be rapidly disassembled and re-assembled without affecting alignment of the optical components. All PIKE gas cells mount rigidly to the baseplate of an FTIR spectrometer for added stability. The cells feature purgeable transfer optics to eliminate atmospheric interferences in the spectrum.
