Simultaneous Thermal Gravimetric Analyser (TGA), Differential Thermal Analyser (DTA) and Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)

NETZSCH STA 449 F1 Jupiter, a simultaneous thermal gravimetric, differential thermal analyser and differential scanning calorimeter, is available to measure the weight change and specific heat capacity´╗┐ of metals and ceramics during heating or cooling under various atmospheres or vacuum. It can also be used to study phase transformations of metals and ceramics such as crystallisation, melting, sublimation. The equipment is capable of measuring thermal differentials over a range of temperatures from ambient to 1600oC.

Measured properties:

Thermal transitions
  • Glass transition
  • Crystallisation
  • Melting
  • Crosslinking
  • Specific heat
  • Degree of crystallinity
  • Oxidative induction time
  • Degradation
  • Carbonisation/Pyrolysis
  • Proximate analysis – moisture, volatile, fixed carbon and ash
