At times these parts can be considered as a consumable. What helps is by reducing the ice build up on the top of the trap. By mounting a small 12V fan blowing towards it and insulating the cables with heat shrink and LN2 tubing going into the trap cascade, this has considerably reduced our consumables.

Betreff: [ISOGEOCHEM] Frequently broken heater and thermocouple of Kiel
Both the new heating cartridge and measuring resistor in our Kiel device
trap 1 are broken (not the same time) in less than two month. It
happened twice already. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
