Field of application:

For humidity- and/or low-temperature (10-100degCelsius) controlled XRD experiments.

Basic Mode of Operation:

Water vapor pressure and flow and temperature are controlled independently by a MHG-32 humidity regulator and a TCU-60 T-controller, which are controlled via software. See following youtube-clip:
