Standard window block with countersunk screw holes option

Janis Research usually uses pan-head screws on the retainers of window blocks, which add about 0.125 into each side of the window block. In cases were space is an issue, talk to your sales engineer about countersunk screw holes in the retainers so that flathead screws can be used, as shown in this photo. This option can be offered on most window blocks with o-ring sealed windows. The window block shown can be used on our model VPF-100, VPF-800, ST-100, CCS-150, CCS-100/202, CCS-100/204, and SHI-4-2.

(The CCS-100/204 uses an optional large window using a different window block.) Contact Janis for more information. Modified Window Block close-up Modified Window Block close-up sample area

Optional rotating stand for 4 K and 10 K cryocooler systems

This model PTSHI-4-5 features an optional rotating stand that allows the user to flip the entire cryostat upside-down. This is convenient for changing samples. The cryostat itself is rather heavy and it doesn't have any flat surface that will allow it to rest upside-down by itself. Without this rotating stand, gaining access to the sample area would be very difficult and inconvenient. This particular stand is designed to hold the cryostat 50 mm above the surface of an optical table but could be designed to hold the cryostat at any height specified by the customer. This stand can be used for 4 K and 10 K cryocooler systems. Contact Janis for more information. PTSHI-4-5 Rotating Stand
