Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA)


Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA)
TA Instruments

TGA is a technique in which the mass of a substance is monitored as a function of temperature or time as the sample specimen is subjected to a controlled temperature program in a controlled atmosphere.

  • Temperature Range: ambient to 1000 C
  • Isothermal Temperature Accuracy: ±1°C
  • Isothermal Temperature Precision: ±0.1°C
  • Heating Rate Range: 
  • 0.1 to 100°C/min in 0.01°C/min increments (standard furnace) 
  • 0.1 to 50°C/min in 0.01°C/min increments (EGA furnace)
  • Furnace Cooling: Forced Air 1000°C to 50°C in < 12 min.
  • Weighing Capacity: 1.0 grams
  • Sensitivity: 0.1 g
  • Weighing Precision: ± 0.01%
