TGA -mittalaitteet

Measure changes in sample mass as a function of temperature with high levels of sensitivity. Our Thermogravimetric Analyzers (TGAs) combine the best available sample atmosphere control, high throughput automation, and advanced hyphenation technology for better understanding of gases evolved during experiments. Delivering the throughput and performance you need in an easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain, automated system, our TGAs are perfect for these applications:

Hyphenated techniques couple TGA and other instruments to gain insights previously unseen by either technique on its own. Systems for TG-FT-IR, TG-MS, and TG-GC/MS help you gain better insight and advance your research.

  • Pharmaceuticals: Identify and measure solvents that come off during testing to complete characterization.
  • Environmental: Our TG-IR solutions help you identify harmful chemicals in soil.
  • Polymers and Plastics: Plasticizers in polymers can be quantitated and identified by hyphenated techniques.
  • Food and Food Packaging: Analyze complex matrices in the things we consume as well as any leachables that may be contaminating the packaging.
  • Industrial: Determine which types of phthalates are present.
  • Manufacturing: Confirm that your products contain the exact material you expect

TGA 8000 + AS
DSC 8500

Our TGA 8000 thermogravimetric analyzer gives you complete control over your sample environment and delivers high throughput and reliability, even unattended. Plus, advanced hyphenation technology works beautifully with FT-IR, MS, GC/MS, and other systems for better understanding of evolved gases. In other words, this is complex characterization made simple.

It’s all about sample atmosphere control

The TGA 8000 gives you the confidence that comes with total control of your sample atmosphere, both temperature and gas. Our furnace’s temperature control system creates a wide effective temperature range – from subambient to 1,200 °C. The system delivers heating rates from 0.1 °C to 500 °C/minute to address the widest range of applications, and its low mass and forced-air cooling allow it to cool quickly for fast sample turnaround. For sample gas environment, the system provides two integral mass-flow controllers for balance and sample purge. Built-in gas switching from Pyris™ software makes switching easy, while optional gas mixing allows the blending of up to three reaction gases, with delivery direct to the sample area

Perfect for unattended operation

In today’s budget-constrained lab environments, your entire staff is being asked to perform complex characterizations – so the need for simple, easy-to-use instrumentation has never been greater. Our newly designed 48-position autosampler is simply the best in the business – the perfect system for single sample autoloading or for overnight multiple sample analysis. This patent-pending autosampler works seamlessly with our Accupik accessory used for testing aqueous or volatile samples, as well as with our comprehensive array of hyphenated accessories.

Welcome to the hyphenation evolution

Unlike all other systems, the TGA 8000 is designed from the ground up for hyphenation, enabling you to increase your power of analysis by coupling techniques such as FT-IR, MS, GC/MS, and more. We’re the only provider that can supply everything you need to understand and implement a complete hyphenation solution for your lab, including instruments, service, and support. And while other vendors depend on third parties to complete your hyphenation solution, we offer a whole range of hyphenated systems that target your need precisely.
