Thermogravimetric Analyzer Makes Thermogravimetric Analysis Easy

Mettler introduces the TGA/DSC1 - a Thermogravimetric Analyzer is a high performance TGA instrument which is one of the very best instruments of its kind for a very simple reason: the balance cell. The balance cell is the most important part of any TGA system; Mettler Toledo’s instruments are made with the best micro and ultra-micro balances in the world.

Using three different removable sensors, the TGA/DSC1 can measure weight change and heat flow simultaneously. The modular design of this instruments allows it to fit perfectly into manual applications as well as for applications requiring fully automated operation in research and development, quality assurance, production and more.

The three sensors used by the Mettler Thermogravimetric Analyzer are:

The DTA sensor: this sensor features a platinum support and measures the sample and three reference temperatures. The differential measurement performed by this sensor offers improved signal-to-noise ratio.

The SDTA sensor features a platinum support and thermocouple which measures the sample temperature.

The DSC sensor has a protective ceramic support, with six thermocouples directly below for measuring the sample and reference temperatures. The sensor is built using MultiSTAR sensor amplification technology; it’s six thermocouples provide larger measurement signals and improved signal to noise ratio.

All three sensors are easy to remove, clean and change and offer highly accurate temperature measurement – the sensor is attached directly to the crucible holder, providing an accuracy of ±0.25 K. Calibration and adjustment is done using precise melting points of known reference standards rather than Curie temperatures for higher accuracy.

Features of the Mettler Toledo TGA/DSC1 Thermogravimetric Analyzer include:

  • Ultra-microgram resolution over the entire measurement range
  • Measures large and small sample masses/volumes
  • Measurement scale from ambient temperatures to 1600 °C
  • Reliable autosampler for high throughput applications
  • DSC heat flow measurement
  • Gastight cell
  • Mettler Toledo ultra-micro balance
