Flash DSC revolutionizes rapid-scanning DSC

Flash DSC 2+ - Flash Differential Scanning Calorimeter

Swiss Quality


The Flash DSC 2+ revolutionizes rapid-scanning DSC. The instrument can analyze reorganization processes that were previously impossible to measure. The Flash DSC 2+ is the ideal complement to conventional DSC. Heating and cooling rates now cover a range of more than 7 decades.
The ultra-high heating and cooling rates add a new dimension to the study of thermally induced physical transitions and chemical processes, for example, the crystallization and reorganization of polymers.

  • Ultra-high cooling rates – allow materials with defined structural properties to be prepared
  • Ultra-high heating rates – suppress reorganization processes
  • Wide temperature range – measurements can be performed in the range -95 to 1000 °C
