Looking for a research-grade instrument that also allows complete process control for your teaching environment?
The versatile Nanotech Innovations SSP-354 provides a reliable source of carbon nanotubes for research projects and product development, while serving as a robust educational tool for academic labs.
With a footprint of less than 4 sq.ft., the SSP-354 can be located virtually anywhere in your lab, even within standard fume hoods. The novel translucent gold shielding dramatically reduces radiative heating outside the furnace, while allowing visual inspection of the deposition process in motion.
If you are enthusiastic to integrate nanotechnology into your research or curricula, look no further. We provide the system, materials and process conditions for you to harvest carbon nanotubes in just a few hours.
- Perfect for the small laboratory or classroom.
- Durable enough to handle heavy work volume.
- Prepare students for a career in nanotechnology with hands on experience
- Conduct original research of your own to contribute to this growing field.
- Priced under $20,000 - save money without sacrificing quality.
The Nanotech Innovations SSP‐354 is an inexpensive, benchtop system for producing high quality Multiwalled Nanotubes (MWNTs).
- Single Source Precursor
- No pre‐patterning of substrate with catalyst
- Easy to use
- Small footprint
- Low consumable costs
The CNT synthesizer produces MWNTs with less than 4% impurity. A researcher can produce a 300‐500 mg sample in a typical run with the system, giving them a more than sufficient amount of CNTs with which to conduct research or continue product development.
Transparent Solid Tube Furnace
Heating Chamber Dimension: 1.5” ID X 18.5” Long
External Dimensions: 4.12” OD X 21.5” Long
Electrical: 110 Volts, 1 Phase, 60 Cycle
Heating Zones: Two (2) Zones
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) confirms that as-grown CNT samples from the SSP‐354 have less than 4% iron catalyst impurity. This low level of initial impurity affords a vast number of applications across a wide range of fields.
Select a frequently asked question above.
How do I set it up?
All that is required is a 20amp outlet, proper venting for the exhaust tubing, and ¼” tubing connected to appropriate lab gas. Best results are achieved with 95%Ar 5%H but 100%Ar or N can be used as well.
What does it come with?
The system comes with the following:
- 1 - Infusion pump
- 1 - 25ml Syringe
- 1 – 10ml Syringe
- 3 – Injection needles
- 3 - Quartz reactor tubes
- 2 - injection nozzles
- 1 - Stainless Steel endcap set (injection and exhaust
- 1 - Set Swagelok tube fittings for carrier gas line
- 1 - Box of 16 Precursor vials (25ml each)
- 1 – User manual
What if I need help?
Our team is available to help with any issues that you might encounter with initial set up and operation. We get very few requests for assistance because of the SSP’s ease of use.
How long does the nanotube growth process take and how large of a sample does it produce?
A typical reaction utilizing our patented precursor solution will take about 3 hours from initial start up, through the growth period, to complete cool down and extraction of CNT sample. The resulting sample is typically a couple tenths of a gram (300-500mg).
