The heart of a TGA is the balance cell. Our TGA instruments use the world’s best METTLER TOLEDO micro and ultra-micro balances. The internal calibration ring weights ensure unsurpassed accuracy. Thanks to the parallel-guided balance the position of the sample does not influence the weight measurement. Built-in user selectable automatic buoyancy compensation eliminates the need for time-consuming baseline measurements. Small samples close to the low end of the weighing range are also weighed accurately because of a low minimum weight.
By using one of the many removable sensor types the TGA/DSC 3+ simultaneously measures heat flow in addition to the weight change.
High temperature effects up to 1600 °C can be measured with a TGA equipped with the HT furnace
