System Information

General Description

Thermogravimetric analysis or thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) is a method of thermal analysis in which the mass of a sample is measured over time as the temperature changes.

  • Mass changes in % or mg
  • Peak temperatures of the 1st and 2nd derivate of the mass changing curve
  • Automatic baseline correction
  • Automatic evaluation of mass changing steps

Capabilities

  • Temperature range : RT to 1000C
  • Resolution : 0.1 µg
  • Heating and cooling rates : 0.001K/min to 200K/min
  • Atmosphere : Nitrogen

Materials Compatibility

Polymers, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, gels
