Thermal Analysis

Discover the true applications of thermal analysis instrumentation with the range provided by Scitek Australia. Capable of measuring samples with the highest degree of efficiency thanks to cutting-edge devices. Operation capabilities for up to 2400°C.

Setline by Setaram

Setline® now democratizes Setaram‘s expertise in thermal analysis with a range of instruments designed for the specific needs of Education and Industry. A range developed to meet the most common applications of these two major areas in order to offer the best possible use.

The Setline® range, combining power and simplicity, is ideal for a first experience of thermal analysis or as part of quality control.

The emerging popularity of Setline® DSC / DSC+ systems (from -170 ° C to 700 ° C) has extended the range to STA / STA+ systems (ambient temperature at 1100 ° C). It guarantees ease of use combined with high sensitivity over the entire temperature range.

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) / Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)

DTA – Differential Thermal Analysis – & DSC – differential scanning calorimetry – measure, respectively, the temperature difference and the heat flow difference between a sample and a reference material (subjected to the same temperature variation in a controlled atmosphere).

DTA detects any change in all categories of materials; DSC determines the temperature and heat of transformation.

SETARAM Instrumentation offers:

  • the widest temperature range of all DTA systems (from –150°C to 2400°C°) using high-precision tri-couple probes;
  • the most complete choice of DSCs (from Q&C system to the highest sensitivity DSC, and 3D-Sensor Inside DSC).

Properties measured by DTA / DSC include phase changes, glass transition, melting, purity, evaporation, sublimation, crystallization, pyrolysis, heat capacity, polymerization, denaturation / aggregation, compatibility, etc.

High Pressue Differenetial Scanning Calorimetry (HP-DSC)

With a High pressure DSC (or calorimeter), users are able to investigate materials and reactions under pressures as high as 1000 bars! In our solutions, the analysis chamber containing the sample (vessels, crucibles)is the only part under pressure. We have designed a gas panel capable of working under hydrogen.

Thermogravimetry (TGA)

Thermogravimetry (TGA) measures weight changes in a material (subjected to temperature variation in a controlled atmosphere).

All SETARAM Instrumentation’s balances satisfy the highest accuracy and stability criteria.
Properties measured by thermogravimetry (TGA) include corrosion, pyrolysis, adsorption / desorption, loss of solvent, oxidation / reduction, hydration / dehydration, decomposition, carbon black, etc,.

Simultaneous Thermogravimetry & Differential scanning Calorimetry / Differential Thermal Analysis (STA, TGA-DTA/DSC)

For TGA-DSC, a DSC probe is attached to the balance to perform simultaneous TGA (thermogravimetry) and DSC (differential scanning calorimeter) analysis of the same sample.
Simultaneous TGA and DSC measurements – STA – offer more information than separate measurements with two different systems.

SETARAM Instrumentation’s range includes unique high temperature systems up to 2400°C and innovative coupling between symmetrical microbalance and 3D-Dimension DSC.

Thermo Mechanical Analysis (TMA) / Dilatometry

Thermomechanical analysis – TMA – measures the deformation of a sample under non-oscillating stress against time or temperature, with programmed temperature.

The vertical design of SETARAM Instrumentation’s TMA systems makes it possible to work with very low loads applying only negligible force to the sample.

Properties measured by thermomechanical analysis -TMA -include thermal expansion coefficients, softening, sintering, glass transition, etc.

C-Therm’s Dilatometer offers clients an economical solution for more traditional dilatometry applications based on a horizontal design.
