The Thermal Analyzer
uses liquid nitrogen and heaters to vary the temperature of samples for
determination of various material behaviors and properties. Coordination
of the information extracted from the system's components produces processing
identification and end-use performance of the material.
Determines the temperature and heat flow associated with material transitions
as a function of time and temperature. It also provides data on endothermic
and exothermic processes of materials during physical transitions that
are caused by phase changes, oxidation, and other heat-related changes.
Measures the amount and rate of weight change in a material, either as
a function of increasing temperature, or isothermally as a function of
time, in a controlled atmosphere. It can be used to characterize any material
that exhibits a weight change and to detect phase changes due to decomposition,
oxidation, or dehydration. Identification of the percent weight change
and correlation of chemical structure, processing, and end-use performance
Tests the mechanical properties of materials at various temperatures.
The sample is mounted on a clamp and then subjected to changes in stress/strain
while undergoing a change in temperature. The instrument measures the
modulus and damping of the sample at various temperatures ranging from
-140°C to 600°C.
