PERSEUS® STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter / TG 209 F1 Libra

The Revolution in Coupling

Affordable Gas Analysis

The unrivaled instrument alliance serves as an innovative coupling technique, even for a narrow budget. It has what it takes to become an integral part of any laboratory and indispensible for its future needs.

No Liquid Nitrogen required

The DLaTGS (DLaTGS = deuterated L-alanine doped triglycine sulphate) detector used does not require any liquid nitrogen cooling. This system is therefore particularly well-suited for test runs with an autosampler (ASC) or for measurements of longer duration.

No Separate Transfer Line

The built-in heated gas cell is directly connected to the gas outlet of the furnace via a heated tube. The low volume of this short gas path guarantees fast response and is quite advantageous in cases where condensable evolved gases are present.

Space-Saving Design

No separate FT-IR spectrometer is necessary, the footprint of the PERSEUS® coupling is identical to that of an STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® / TG 209 F1 Libra alone. This makes the coupled system ideally suited for labs in which space is scarce.

Automatic Sample Changer

The automatic sample changer (ASC) similarly handles routine measurements in quality control as well as requirements for research and development. It works around the clock to free your time for other challenges and allows you to make optimal use of the PERSEUS® coupling even during the weekend. Of course, each sample can be assigned a different measurement and evaluation program. Easy-to-understand input fields lead you through the programming of a series of measurements. Unplanned analyses can also be inserted into a pre-programmed series of measurements already in progress.

The system has many outstanding features: BeFlat® function allows or immediate measurement upon switching on the unit, the system’s heating rates of up to 200 K/min allow for faster results, while its corrosion-resistant ceramic furnace withstands even fluorine- or chlorine-containing polymers, c-DTA® function for the detection of exothermal and endothermal reactions.

QMS 403 Aëolos Quadro - Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer Coupling

The QMS 403 Aëolos Quadro is a very compact mass spectrometer with a heated capillary inlet system, specially designed for routine analysis of volatile decomposition products of thermal analysis (instrument for EGA: evolved gas analysis).

TGA/STA-GC-MS Coupling

NETZSCH, in collaboration with JAS (Joint Analytical Systems), has forged a breakthrough improvement in evolved gas analysis (EGA). What sets the new coupling system apart is the fact that the start of the measurement is event-driven. This enables temperature-correlated detection of the substances released, which in turn allows for direct correlation with mass loss steps.
