Ruston Services DMA 8000 Accessory Kit

Ruston Services have developed a small accessory kit of additional items which help to make the PerkinElmer DMA 8000 system even better. The kit includes a stainless-steel tray with feet, which provided a waterproof tray to catch melted ice when using the liquid nitrogen cooling system, and also protects your table from liquid nitrogen drips which can damage plastic coatings on laboratory benches. A further benefit is that it can be used to keeps the small measuring system parts from falling onto the floor, and is immune to damage if hot parts fall onto it.

Two nut spinners are included for the two sizes of nut which are used with the DMA 8000 measuring systems – 5mm and 5.5mm. These allows easy installation or removal of the nuts on the various threaded legs which comprise the DMA 8000 measuring systems, and help to minimise risk to the DMA drive motor.

A 5mm combination spanner is included with a ring at one end, and open jaw at the other. This is very helpful when installing samples in the tension measuring system.

A USB cooling fan is included, which speeds up cooling of the DMA measuring system and furnace when these are opened at the end of a test. By using the fan, cooling times can be reduced to below 15 minutes from 200°C, giving a faster turnaround between sample tests.
