NETZSCH STA 449 F3 Jupiter

This thermal analyzer performs a simultaneous TG-DSC measurement on the sample. Thermogravimetry (TG) is a technique in which the mass of a substance is measured as a function of temperature or time. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a technique in which the difference in energy input into a substance and reference material is measured as a function of temperature or time. In DSC the substance and reference material are subjected to a controlled temperature program.
   The system can operate in a temperature range from 25 ­ 1400 deg. The instrument is equipped with a dual furnace made up of SiC to enhance the sample throughput. The sensor is made up of Pt-Rh wire. Measurements can be carried out at inert, oxidizing and vacuum conditions. Specific heat capacity measurements are also possible.
   TG applications include Mass changes, Temperature stability, Oxidation/ reduction behaviour, Decomposition, Corrosion studies, Thermokinetics and Compositional analysis.
   DSC applications include Melting behaviour, Solid-Solid transitions, Polymorphism, Degree of Crystallinity, Glass transitions, Cross-linking reactions, Oxidative stability and Specific heat.
