TEM sample rod storage system
The new TEM sample rod storage system from PIE Scientific enables storage of up to six TEM sample rods under vacuum. Each storage cell can be individually pumped or vented with electronic solenoid valves.
The six storage cells can be individually configured to support sample rods from FEI/Thermo Fisher, JEOL or Hitachi. For larger EM laboratories the system can be extended by chain linking multiple units.
The TEM sample rod storage system can share the same pump as a Tergeo-EM plasma cleaner or can be pumped with a separate turbo or dry scroll pump station. Constructed from all metal tubes under vacuum for minimal outgassing.
Each cell comprises a solenoid valve control button where 'Blue Light' shows under vacuum and 'Light Off' shows vented.
On the back side there is a port for introducing a venting gas (pure argon, nitrogen etc) and a NW25 or NW40 pumping port for connecting to either a turbo pumping station or dry scroll pump.
