The simultaneous thermal analyzer NETZSCH STA 449 F3 Jupiter allows the measurement of mass changes and thermal effects as a function of temperature.
Simultaneous Thermal Analysis generally refers to the simultaneous application of Thermogravimetry (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to one and the same sample in a single instrument. The advantages are obvious: The test conditions are perfectly identical for the TGA and DSC signals (same atmosphere, gas flow rate, vapor pressure on the sample, heating rate, thermal contact to the sample crucible and sensor, radiation effect, etc.). Furthermore, sample throughput is improved as more information can be gathered from each test run.
In NorBioLab, a simultaneous thermal analyzer NETZSCH STA 449 F3 Jupiter is located at RISE PFI in Trondheim. For contact information see here.
