LABSYS evo DTA/DSC (thermal analysis)

the highlights

DTA, DSC from ambient to 1150°C or 1600°C

LABSYS evo is a user friendly, robust and highly powerful thermal analysis platform.

HIGHLIGHTS include:
• A comprehensive line of thermal analyzers with two temperature ranges chosen and optimized for distinct families of application:
– RT – 1 150 °C, a cost effective solution mostly (but not only) for organic materials studies (polymers, pharmaceuticals, petroleum by-products…),
– RT – 1 600 °C, for demanding high temperature experiments involving mostly (but not only) inorganic materials like ceramics or metals.
• Plug & play TGA, DTA, DSC, and CP rods for the best Simultaneous Thermal Analysis experience users can get.

features

LABSYS evo DTA/DSC relies on the ideal design of the LABSYS evo furnaces – both 1150 °C and 1600 °C versions – and gas flow control unit, with a perfectly centered rod, locked in that position.

CP ROD
To increase the sensitivity of Cp measurements it is necessary to increase the mass, the sensitivity of the sensor and the heating rate of the furnace. This is made possible thanks to the 3D Cp rod because of the large size of its crucibles (380 μl), the high sensitivity of its 3D Calvet type sensor (up to 0.5 μV/mW), which is composed of 10 thermocouples in series, and the high heating and cooling rate of the LABSYS evo furnaces (100 °C/min). It is now possible to have Cp measurements within 2 % accuracy, on the whole temperature range (RT – 1 600 °C).

applications

While DTA is mostly used to determine the temperature at which heat effects occur, properly calibrated DSC rods lead to more accurate determination of the amount of heat, whereas the 3D Cp rod is ideal for heat capacity.
Curie points, glass transitions, phase transitions, crystallinity, crystallization temperatures and kinetics, and heat capacity are typical measurements achieved by the LABSYS evo DTA/DSC.
