Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer (NETZSCH STA 449 F3 Jupiter)

Overview

The STA 449 F3 Jupiter is a powerful state–of–the–art thermal analysis tool for simultaneous Thermograivemetry (TG) and Differential Scanning Calorimetery (DSC) analyses on a sample. It measures the mass change and the heat released/ absorbed by the sample material during heating/cooling for such studies as: melting/ crystallization behavior, phase transitions, oxidation/reduction behaviour, decomposition, thermokinetics, glass transition, etc.

Principle of Operation

The STA system is equipped with a microbalance that measure the mass of the sample as it experiences a prescribed heating/cooling regime. The sample temperature is also precisely measured and compared with a reference material. The data are processed to provide two spectrums, presenting the mass change, and the heat flow to (from) the sample.
