Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)


Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)

  • DSC is a thermal analysis technique that looks at how a material’s heat capacity (Cp) is changed by temperature. A sample of known mass is heated or cooled and the changes in its heat capacity are tracked as changes in the heat flow. This allows the detection of transitions such as melts, glass transitions, phase changes, and curing.
  • The Q20P is a dedicated pressure DSC system that provides heat flow measurements on pressure sensitive materials from -130 to 550 ˚C, at pressures from 1 Pa (0.01 torr) to 7 MPa (1,000 psi).
  • Sample size 0.5 to 100 mg (nominal)
  • Sample volume 10 mm3 in hermetic pans
  • Sample pans Various open or hermetically sealed (standard and Tzero series)
  • Purge gases Recommended: air, argon, helium, nitrogen, or oxygen
  • Typical purge flow rate 50 mL/min
  • Cell volume 3.4 mL
