Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is the most frequently used thermal analysis technique. DSC measures enthalpy changes in samples due to changes in their physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature or time.

 

The DSC utilizes an innovative DSC sensor with 120 thermocouples which guarantees unbeatable sensitivity and outstanding resolution. Measurement principles Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measures the difference between the heat flows from the sample and reference sides of a sensor as a function of temperature or time.

 

Physics of Differential scanning calorimetry

Differences in heat flow arise when a sample absorbs or releases heat due to thermal effects such as melting, crystallization, chemical reactions, polymorphic transitions, vaporization and many other processes. Specific heat capacities and changes in heat capacity, for example during a glass transition, can also be determined from the difference in heat flow.

 

Temperature range and cooling options

You can adapt the system to your requirements depending on the temperature range in which you want to measure. The IntraCooler is a sealed system requiring only electrical power. It is therefore advantageous in locations where liquid nitrogen is undesirable or not available. Liquid nitrogen cooling offers greater flexibility because it allows you to measure over the entire temperature range.

Experience the ultimate in ease-of-use thanks to experiment launch with One Click™ and built-in gas handling. A cleverly designed, factory endurance tested autosampler with single axis movement and flexible crucible handling provides efficient and reliable routine operation around the clock.
