Automatic Sample Robot
Up to 34 DSC or TGA samples can be automatically processed, each with a specific method and crucible. A unique feature of the sample robot is that it can open crucibles before the measurement. This eliminates ambient influences on the sample during the wait time on the sample turntable.
- Up to 34 samples can be automatically processed
- Universal gripper for various types of crucibles
- Lid piercing for DSC and TGA measurements
- Sample turntable can be changed
- Automatic weighing-in
- Any DSC 1 and TGA/DSC 1 can be upgraded with a sample robot
- A different analysis method can be used for each sample
Cooling Options for DSC, TGA and TMA
The DSC can optionally be equipped with a cryostat, an intracooler or a liquid nitrogen cooling accessory. For the TGA and TMA, housing thermostating and furnace cooling require a cryostat. DMA low temperature operations are based on liquid nitrogen cooling.
DSC curves often exhibit effects that cannot immediately be understood. In such cases, it would be very helpful to actually see what is going on in the sample. This would enable us to identify solid-solid transitions, differentiate between overlapping effects such as melting and decomposition, observe the shrinkage of fibers or films, or simply identify the cause of an artifact in a DSC curve.
MultiSTAR® DSC Ceramic Sensors
The MultiSTAR® sensor features multi-layer thermocouple technology allowing 120 thermocouples to be arranged on top of one another in several layers. This results in incredible sensitivity, a noise level in the sub-microwatt range, but at the same time good resolution.
TGA-Sorption System - Measurements with controlled humidity
The TGA-Sorption System is designed to analyze materials under defined conditions of temperature and relative humidity (RH).
- Unique flexibility – a highly sensitive thermobalance combined with full sorption analysis capability
- Defined environment – the effect of moisture and temperature on material properties can be easily investigated
- Pre-conditioning versatility – methods allow the use of elevated preconditioning temperatures (up to 150 °C)
Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA) - Hyphenated techniques
All TGA and TGA/DSC versions, the TMA/SDTA can be connected online to a mass spectrometer (MS), an FTIR spectrometer or to a GC/MS system. Analysis of the decomposition products yields additional information about the sample. This enables you to interpret measurement curves with greater certainty.
