The horizontal configuration provides users flexibility in sample placement and geometry making it easy and versatile solution.
The C-Therm dilatometer can offer sample formats up to 50mm in length.  Additionally, the system can offer a dual-sample configuration in doubling the testing capacity or be run as a differential measurement.
Electronics & software
C-Therm’s dilatometer was developed with the same central controller as C-Therm’s TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer – offering clients savings of up to 40% in combining the two!
C-Therm’s dilatometer uses its own data acquisition software and produces data files that are fully compatible and importable in the state-of-the-art Calisto data treatment software.


The C-Therm dilatometer provides unparalleled ease of use in the study of bulk polymers, ceramics, glass and metal alloys.
