Contact Heat Thermal Stability Test

The Contact Heat Thermal Stability Test Unit has been developed to allow a wide range of tests to be carried out,
where accurately controlled dry heat conditions are required on the surfaces of two flat heater plates.

Independent control of the top and bottom plate temperature is easily achieved and the compact ‘desk top’ design allows fast warm up and stabilisation of the plate temperature.

The top plate hinge is designed in such a way to accommodate samples of different thickness and will remain level when closed.
