​Stanstead Intensifier
 

At ISIS we have a range of both automatic and hand operated intensifiers and the necesary pressure cells to enable high pressure studies of samples. We have Standard intensifiers and cells for experiments involving Helium but also the ability to compress Hydrogen up to 3Kbar using special materials resistant to hydrogen embrittlement.

If you have any questions about this equipment or you think you may want to use one on your experiment contact the Pressure and Furnaces team, or the respective instrument scientist.
