High-performance modular simultaneous TGA & DTA / DSC thermal analyzer (ambient / 2400°C)
SETSYS Evolution is the standard for high performance TGA, TG-DSC and TG-DTA application. It is based on a complete modular thermal analysis platform for
– TGA, DTA and DSC
– Simultaneous TGA/DTA and TGA/DSC
– Dilatometry / TMA
The key to the SETSYS TGA-DTA / DSC is Setaram’s unique symmetrical balance, a highly robust and ï¬‚exible furnace conï¬?guration offering unique performance and the lowest operational costs of any system available. The SETSYS can be conï¬?gured to operate up to 2400°C and also use controlled humidity, vacuum and highly aggressive atmospheres.
NEW PARTS AND OPTIONS
SETSYS Vapor Sorption
A new SETSYS Evolution TGA or STA version is available for studying the sorption behavior of materials with vapors (including volatile organic compounds). This allows for sorption isotherm or sorption kinetics experiments. Find out more by downloading TN707 from our application documents library at www.setaram.com.
Quenching / Fast heating
This option allows the sample to be inserted in, or removed from, the hot zone of the furnace during a measurement. The insertion and removal is programmed from the Calisto software.
A gas purification system is available to remove trace oxygen from the inert / carrier gas flow. It is based on a zirconium foil placed in a slot in the hot part of the anti-convection tube above the sample.
Oxygen Partial pressure
This option allows for the measurement and control of oxygen partial pressure of the gas flowing above the sample. This is especially interesting when studying the phase diagrams of ceramics. An oxygen partial pressure controller is placed upstream of the test gas inlet. A specific flange equipped with an oxygen probe is connected at the furnace outlet.
An alumina sleeved protected thermocouple was designed to prevent corrosion/damage from the gases evolved from the sample. It is available with or without the above mentioned oxygen probe. Various thermocouples types are available up to 1750°C.
Hook for disc shaped samples
Platinum based hooks which allow hanging of disc-shaped samples to the balance are available. Sample diameters vary between 10 and 16mm.
New ceramic crucibles
Yttria and Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) crucibles for TG-DSC and TG-DTA versions, with optional covers are available. The crucible’s volume is 100 µL, diameter 5mm and height 8mm.
