"We ordered a custom-based ambient pressure XPS endstation from Ferrovac to study solid-liquid interfaces. Ferrovac did an excellent job both in terms of engineering and assembly and delivered the product on time. This endstation is very productive from the very first day it was connected to the synchrotron at the Swiss Light Source."

"My group purchases a lot of items from Ferrovac, and very much like the excellent quality of your products."

"Thank you again! We are big fans of your products."

PBN Heater Assembly with Receiver for Flag Style Plates


A 50W pyrolitic boron nitride heater in combination with a molybdenum receiver for flag style plates provides a reliable solution for sample annealing. A K-type thermocouple is mounted on the sample receiver.

HSOMPBN50 heaters can be implemented in fully configured heating stages including flange assembly with electrical feedthroughs. The HSOMPBN50 is also used in BOOMERAX manipulators and can be easily adapted to practically any commercially available XYZ manipulator.

Receiver for Flag Style Sample Plates with integrated PBN Heater

  • Power: 100W (24V, 4.2A ~1000°C)
  • Maximum temperature approx. 1000°C
  • Thermocouple: Type K (chromel/alumel)
  • Fully UHV compatible materials
  • Power supply not included

Available versions, each modularly adaptable:

Cryo UHV Suitcase

LN2-cooled VSN40S UHV Suitcase


VSN40S Compact NexGeneration UHV Suitcase

Mini UHV Suitcase

VSN40M Mini NexGeneration UHV Suitcase






"We've been quite impressed with the build quality and design of everything. The suitcase works great. I'm used to living in fear of dropping samples in UHV but the design of the suitcase, manipulators and sample storage make moving samples around fairly low stress. We are very satisfied customers."
