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

DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimeters) and DTA (Differential Thermal Analyzer) quantitatively determine conversion temperatures and enthalpies for solids and liquids by measuring the heat flows to both the sample and to a reference as a function of temperature and time.

Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)

For highly precise measurement of dimension changes to solids, melts, powders and pastes at a programmed temperature change and with negligible sample strain, Thermo-Mechanical Analysis (TMA) is the method of choice. The measurement of the dimensional changes can additionally be carried out with adjustable sample strain.

Dielectric Analysis (DEA)

Dielectric Analysis (DEA) measures changes in dipole orientation and ion mobility in polymers and cross-linked systems by stimulation with an alternating voltage via sensor electrodes. The DEA method can also be used for online-processes (e.g. cure monitoring) with a suitable sensor technique.

Rheology

Rheology is the study of flow and deformation of materials under applied forces which is routinely measured using a rheometer. The measurement of rheological properties is applicable to all materials from fluids such as dilute solutions of polymers and surfactants through to concentrated protein formulations, to semi-solids such as pastes and creams, to molten or solid polymers as well as asphalt. Rheological properties can be measured from bulk sample deformation using a mechanical rheometer, or on a micro-scale by using a microcapillary viscometer or an optical technique such as Microrheology.

Simultaneous Thermogravimetry – Differential Scanning Calorimetry (STA/TG-DSC)

STA denotes the concurrent application of two or more measuring methods to the same sample. The classic simultaneous method is the combination of thermogravimetry with DSC or DTA.

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)

Dynamic-Mechanical Analysis (DMA) / Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMTA) measures visco-elastic properties by applying an oscillating force to the sample.

Seebeck Coefficient and Electrical Conductivity

Precise knowledge of the thermal properties is of importance in developing beneficial thermoelectric materials. The relative performance or efficiency of a thermoelectric material is described by the figure of merit (ZT). NETZSCH has the solution which allows for the simultaneous measurement of the Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity under identical conditions.

Thermal Diffusivity / Thermal Conductivity / Thermal Transmission (LFA, GHP, HFM, HotBox)

The Laser Flash Method (LFA) is a well established technique for the determination of thermal diffusivity, in which the increase in the sample’s temperature resulting from the absorption from a laser flash is measured. With HFM (Heat Flow Meter) and GHP, the thermal conductivity of insulating materials and refractories can be determined.

Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) / Thermogravimetry (TG)

Thermogravimetric Analysis/Thermogravimetry (TGA/TG) determines the temperature- and time-dependent changes in the mass of a sample that occur during a specific temperature program and in a defined atmosphere. The respective instrument is called a thermobalance.

Multiple Module Calorimeter (MMC)

Like a DSC, the Multi Module Calorimeter (MMC) measures chemical reactions, phase changes, and specific heat but on gram-size samples. The NETZSCH development team has created a totally new calorimeter system which can be used in commercial R&D, universities and research centers and QC/QA of various industries.

Software

The Proteus® software package integrates all functionalities for carrying out measurements on any NETZSCH instrument with comprehensive routines for the evaluation of measuring data and import of external data.
Additionally, we deliver unique Advanced Software solutions, such as Thermokinetics.

Refractory Testing (RUL/CIC, HMOR)

Refractoriness under load (RUL) and creep in compression (CIC) describe the deformation resistance of a sample body under loading as a function of temperature and time. The bending strength (HMOR - Hot Modulus of Rupture) is determined with a hot bending strength tester.

Dilatometry (DIL)

For precise measurements of dimensional changes on solids, dilatometry (DIL) is the method of choice.

Accelerating Rate Calorimetry

Accelerating Rate Calorimeters that help industry operate safely and profitably. As highly versatile, miniature chemical reactors, they measure thermal and pressure properties of exothermic chemical reactions. The resulting information helps engineers and scientists identify potential hazards and address key elements of process safety design including emergency relief systems, effluent handling, process optimization, and thermal stability.

Hyphenated Techniques - Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA)

We offer perfect solutions for coupling of QMS, GC-MS and FT-IR with our thermal analyzers.

Mass- and Infrared spectrometry (methods for EGA: Evolved Gas Analysis) serve to detect and identify volatile emissions from a sample during a temperature treatment.

Fire Testing

Fire-testing products have been increasing in importance in recent times. It is essential that products and materials are as flame-resistant as possible for reasons of safety and regulations. It is also important that a product generate as little smoke as possible in the event that it does ignite; this can help save lives.
