Thermogravimetric Analyzer

Principle:
Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) measures the amount and rate of change in the weight of a material as a function of temperature or time in a controlled atmosphere. Measurements are used primarily to determine the composition of materials and to predict their thermal stability at temperatures up to 1000°C. The technique can characterize materials that exhibit weight loss or gain due to decomposition, oxidation, or dehydration.

Applications:
Thermal Stability of Materials study

  • Oxidative Stability of Materials study
  • Lifetime Estimation of a Product
  • Decomposition Kinetics of Materials study
  • The Effect of Reactive or Corrosive Atmospheres on Materials
  • Moisture and Volatiles Content of Materials


 Specification:

  • Temperature ramp: up to 1000 oC.
  • The weight loss with temperature or time can be plotted and analyzed.
  • Composition of Multi-component Systems can be visualized
