Thermogravimetric Analysis / Differential Scanning Calorimetry
One instrument. Many parameters.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a method whereby changes in mass in a system as a function of temperature in a controlled atmosphere are measured to determine the physical composition of a small amount of material. It is often coupled with a second method of physical properties, such as, in our system, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), which can measure the heat flow in and out of material as a function of temperature.

The instrument use state-of-the-art micro and ultramicro balances. The internal calibration ring weights ensure unsurpassed accuracy. The system measures up to 50 million resolution points continuously – weight changes of a 5-gram sample are determined with an accuracy as high as 0.1 μg. Samples can be heated with precise temperature ramps in an exactly controlled atmosphere (pure nitrogen, synthetic air, reactive gases).
