Equipment attached to a Nikon microscope for heating or cooling of smaller samples. This is often used to determine homogenisation temperature and salinity of fluid inclusions and homogenisation temperature of melt inclusions. Furthermore the equipment can be used to investigate structural changes and other parameters in samples under heating or cooling conditions.

Two sample holders are available:

1) THMSG600, temperature range from -190 to +600 degrees of Celcius.

2) TS1400XY, temperature range up to +1400 degrees of Celcius.

Both units are computer controlled, produced by Linkam.
