Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (TGA/DSC)
The TGA/DSC 3+ provides trustworthy results using a TGA balance from the worldwide leader in weighing technology with position-independent weighing, automatic internal calibration weights, a wide measurement range, the best minimum weight performance and the highest weighing accuracy and precision.It allows users to analyze a wide variety of sample types up to 1600 Deg C.
A complementary DSC heat flow sensor simultaneously detects thermal events such as melting and crystallization in addition to providing accurate and precise transition temperatures.
1. What is Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA)?
Answer: Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA) is a technique that combines several thermal analysis techniques, such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and thermomechanical analysis (TMA), in order to measure the thermal properties of a material.
2. How is STA conducted?
Answer: STA is conducted by placing a sample into an instrument and heating it while simultaneously measuring the thermal properties of the sample. By plotting the data from the instrument, it is possible to gain insight into the thermal behavior of the sample.
3. What are the benefits of using STA?
Answer: The main benefit of using STA is that it allows researchers to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the thermal properties of a material. Additionally, STA can be used to identify the thermal behavior of materials at different stages of their life cycle, such as during manufacturing, storage, or use.
4. What types of materials can be analyzed using STA?
Answer: STA can be used to analyze a wide variety of materials, such as polymers, pharmaceuticals, food products, minerals, ceramics, composites, and metals.
