C600 (calorimetry)

the highlights

Isothermal and temperature scanning calorimeter (ambient to 600°C)

The C600 high temperature Calvet calorimeter is based on the 3D Calvet sensor technology. An array of thermocouples totally surrounds the sample, and all the heat evolved is measured. No matter how small or large the thermal transformation, the system provides a complete picture of the event.

The added value of 3D sensors

Absolute calibration: with a three-dimensional transducer the sensitivity of the C600 is independent of:
The weight, form and nature (powder, fiber, liquid, etc.) of the sample
Any contact between the sample and the transducer
The type of crucible used
The nature of the sweeping gas (inert, oxidizing, wet) and its flow rate.

Modes of operation
Isothermal calorimeter: the heat measurement is performed at a constant temperature
Scanning calorimeter: the heat measurement is performed during a temperature program

Ease of operation: dedicated market leading CALISTO software that is not only intuitive but powerful enough to perform every typical experiments and data treatment.

The C600 calorimeter is meant to determine thermodynamic data of materials and/or reactions at high temperatures and / or at high pressures.
It is designed for the determination of temperatures and heats of reaction or transition over the available temperature range (ambient up to 600°C), for investigations on thermal stability, gas-solid, gas-liquid reactions, reactions under pressure, etc.
