The versatile and adaptable CT5000 TEC 5 kN in-situ testing stage is suitable for mounting within most XCT systems. The motor speed range of this device is 0.1 mm/min to 1.0 mm/min. The stage is equipped with temperature control, through Peltier heated and cooled jaws with a temperature range from -20°C to +160°C. the adaptable tube length and Interchangeable tensile jaws and compression platens allow for compression and tensile testing of samples of variable length and perform visual imaging of how the properties of materials change under different loading conditions.
