  • Measures melting temperature, heat of fusion, latent heat of melting, glass transition temperature, crystalline phase transition temperature and energy, precipitation energy and temperature
  • Determines the amount of energy absorbed or released by a sample when it is heated or cooled, providing quantitative and qualitative data on endothermic and exothermic processes.
  • Works on power compensation temperature null principle.
  • Comprises of independent dual furnaces constructed of Platinum-Iridium alloys with independent platinum resistance.
  • Comprises of distributed, platinum resistance thermometers.
  • Range: room temperature to 270 °C
  • Accuracy / Precision ± 0.1 °C/ ±0 .01 °C.
  • Scanning rates: Heating /cooling 0.01 °C to 500 °C / min.
  • Scans: Straight forward, pure linear heating ramps and isothermal.
  • Atmosphere: Static, dynamic including nitrogen, argon, helium, carbon dioxide, air, oxygen over full temperature range.
  • Sample to be in the powder form only.
  • Amount of the sample: 1mg-10mg
  • Possible Temperature Range: Room Temperature (RT) - 270 ºC
