Linseis STA PT1600

The Simultaneous Thermal Analyser combines thermo-gravimetric analysis with differential scanning calorimetry. Both weight changes and heat flow into a material can be measured as a function of temperature.

Both Simultaneous Thermal Analysers at the UKAEA Materials Research Facility use crucibles for temperature uniformity. The instruments are equipped with furnaces for operation at -100-500°C and RT- 1600°C.


TGA: Investigating weight changes in samples from oxidation, thermal decomposition etc.
DSC: investigating melting points, glass transitions, reaction kinetics, percentage crystallinity, etc
