Receiver for Flag Style Plates, Variable Temperature version, Molybdenum

Product code: RECOMLT(MO)

With it's melting point of 2900K, Molybdenum is an excellent choice of material for high temperature applications. At the other end, the high themal conductivity and the low expansion coefficient also make it an ideal choice for experiments at very low temperatures below 4K. 

Molydenum leaf springs press the sample plate down onto the face of the sample drawer via two Ruby spheres. For use above 1000K, it is strongly recommended not to use Mo sample plates. Very likely, the sample plates will be welded to the receiver. Choose tungsten, Tantalum or a ceramic material instead to avoid sticking.
