WEBINAR: HEAT CAPACITY MEASUREMENTS BY CALORIMETRIC TECHNIQUES – PART 2 : HEAT CAPACITY AT HIGH TEMPERATURE

When:  Tuesday, April 11th, 2017
4:00PM UTC+1 (Paris, Berlin)
10:00AM EDT (New York, Boston)

In English – You can ask questions in French as well!

Specific heat capacity Cp can be simply defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a mass unit of material by 1 K at constant temperature and pressure. The determination of this thermophysical property of a material is essential in a large range of application fields, more particularly when the considered material has to be cooled or heated, whether it is during its synthesis, treatment, use, or recycling.

WEBINAR: HEAT CAPACITY MEASUREMENTS BY CALORIMETRIC TECHNIQUES – PART 3 : HEAT CAPACITY OF LIQUIDS

This third and last part of the webinar series on calorimetric measurements of specific heat capacity will focus more particularly on the challenges met with liquids. Continuous or stepwise methods are applicable as long as the effects linked with the vapor-liquid equilibrium are minimized or suppressed, for example with the use of dedicated calorimetric cells. We will provide the experimentalists with helpful tips and applications examples to assist with the heat capacity measurements and calculations.

WEBINAR: INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW THEMYS THERMAL ANALYSIS PLATFORM FOR TGA, HP-TGA, STA, DTA/DSC, EGA

The new THEMYS thermal analysis platform will be introduced. It was designed to provide our users with better experimental control, quality results, instrument versatility and ease of use. Some of its main features & benefits will be presented, like:

  • Operating temperatures up to 1750 °C at atmospheric conditions or under vacuum, or up to 1 200 °C under pressures as high as 150 bar (2175 PSI).
  • Gas flow management options varying from single inert gas flow up to highly complex blends with up to 4 mass flow controllers, gas switching and blending devices, vacuum pumps and gauges
  • Three types of balances: HIGH SENSITIVITY, HIGH CAPACITY and HIGH VERSATILITY
  • TWIST & LOCK thermocouple connections, EASY FIT DTA/DSC rods, AUTO-TARE

Several applications will be shown as examples, including standard tests (CuSO4.5H2O, CaC2O4 at 50 bar), gas sorption, high temperature corrosion, and coal pyrolysis at 5 and 10 bar.

WEBINAR: THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THE CHARACTERIZATION OF PHARMACEUTICAL MATERIALS, FORMULATIONS AND DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS

400-webinar

All along the development and production process of a pharmaceutical material, dosage form or drug delivery system, thermal analysis and calorimetry provide valuable data on the materials structure or stability. They offer key data for the understanding of polymorphism, for the determination of amorphous content, of materials purity, for the stability of the dosage form. The webinar will introduce examples of application of DSC (differential scanning calorimetry), TGA (thermogravimetric analysis), EGA (evolved gas analysis), and microcalorimetry related to polymorphism, purity, thermal stability, protein based formulation (unfolding, aggregation), and API-excipient compatibility.

This webinar will be of interest to engineers and researchers involved in the characterization of pharmaceutical materials, or anyone with specific interest in drug formulation or delivery system.

WEBINAR: ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING: NEW CONCEPTS, NEW PROCESSES, NEW MATERIALS. HOW AND WHEN THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY MAY HELP?

image-3d-printing-bdAfter quickly introducing additive manufacturing and some of the available methods, we’ll cover the needs that can be addressed by thermal analysis techniques all over the production process: from the powder or filament to the final material.

The main thermal analysis techniques that can be valuable for the researcher or engineer interested in additive manufacturing will be introduced. Examples will be presented, covering the different steps in the production process, different materials (polymers, ceramics, metals), and the different thermal analysis testing needs.

WEBINAR:THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE

SETARAM is pleased to invite you to our next 2016 Thermal Analysis Webinar.

We hope this information will help you further for your material science research and inspire your imagination.

When:
Tuesday, January 24th, 2017,
4:00PM UTC+1 (Paris, Berlin) – 10:00AM EDT (New York, Boston) in English.
You can ask questions in French as well!

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is defined as the temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperatures. As most of the renewable energy sources (solar, wind, …) are intermittently available, the target of TES is to improve performances of energy systems with a smoother supply and an increased reliability. The three main types of thermal energy storage use sensible heat, latent heat or thermochemical heat. For each TES mode, various types of transitions or reactions are exploited.

The webinar will focus on how the thermal analysis and calorimetric methods can be used to investigate the different TES techniques and to characterize the transitions or reactions of typically used  materials (fatty acids, paraffins, organic substances, inorganic salts, adsorbents, clathrates).
