Applications of Thermal Analysis (DSC, TGA, STA)

• Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer measures the change in mass of a sample as a function of time or temperature in inert or oxidative atmosphere.
• Chemical changes occurring in an oxidative atmosphere provide useful information regarding characterization of the sample.
• TGA-4000/STA-8000 is based on a rugged microbalance which is sensitive to measure even a few micrograms of weight loss.
• It employees computer controlled gas switching to regulate furnace atmosphere.
• There are preset programs to allow complete separations, Decomposition studies, proximate analysis of coal, auto stepwise analysis of filled polymers, curing characteristics High temperature studies, Thermal stability and compositional analysis are possible with this instrument. Inorganic materials, metals, polymers and plastics, glasses, and composite materials can be analyzed.
• Differential scanning calorimeter measures Melting, Crystallization, Glass Transitions Temperature, Crystallinity, Specific heat, Polymorphism, Kinetic Studies, Curing Reaction.
• Endothermic and Exothermic effects.
• Isothermal Cure kinetics studies.
• Characterization of polymorphism of pharmaceuticals.
• Characterization of pharmaceuticals formulations.
• Characterization of multicomponent materials by TGA.
• Thermal decomposition study.
• Widely used in polymer, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics industry etc.
• STA 8000 - Simultaneous analysis of TGA with DTA mode and DSC mode.
• DTA measures the temperature difference between a sample and an inert reference material.
