Description: An instrument for determining caloric effects (transformation temperatures and enthalpies) and mass change at the same time. 


DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) Features:

Determination of onset, peak, inflection and end temperatures; automatic peak search; transformation enthalpies; comprehensive glass transition analysis; automatic baseline correction; degree of cristallinity; O.I.T (oxidative induction time) evaluation

TG (Thermogravimetry) Features:

Mass changes in % or mg; automatic evaluation of mass change steps; determination of the residual mass; extrapolated onset and end set; peak temperatures of the 1st and 2nd derivates of the mass change curves; automatic baseline correction.

  • Temperature: 0-1550°C (0.001 K resolution)
  • Heating rate · 0.001-50 K/min (furnace-dependent)
  • Balance resolution 0.1 μg (over the entire weighing range)
  • Balance drift < 5 μg/hour
  • Maximum sample load 35000 mg (incl. crucible)
  • DSC enthalpy accuracy 1% (for indium).
  • Only non-corrosive samples can be analysed in this very sensitive instrument. No organic or other materials containing F, Cl, Br.
  • Pans of Al, Pt/Rh and, alumina are available
  • Atmospheres: nitrogen and air
  • Sample size: from 0.5mg
