Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (TGA/DSC)


Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (TGA/DSC)
STA 409 PC

Generally used in materials characterization to provide heat capacity data as well as temperature information such as inset temperature, melting point, and glass transition. This model allows for simultaneous collection of thermal gravimetric data, allowing correlation of mass and energy data from one instrument.

  • The carbide furnace chamber is purged with N2 to provide an inert atmosphere and avoiding combustion.
  • Temperature range of room temperature to 1500 Celsius. 
  • Ramp rates are generally between 5-20 K/min.
  • Sample size is generally ~20 mg.
