L81-I (STA Simultaneous Thermal Analysis)

For demanding STA applications (STA Simultaneous Thermal Analysis)

Linseis STA L-81 Big Picture

The LINSEIS L81-I (Simultaneous Thermal Analysis) is designed as a top loading Thermobalance, providing excellent drift stability, a robust design and highest TG and DSC/DTA reproducibility. All measuring systems are easily user exchangeable to ensure quick and simple system handling. The broad selection of furnaces (optional turntable) ranging from -150°C up to 2400°C and the large sample mass of up to 25g/3ml are unique features of this system. 

The balance design can provide high vacuum (10E-5mbar), inert, reducing, flowing or humidified atmosphere. Corrosive conditions can be analyzed with proper precautions. The system is capable of adapting residual gas analysis systems using an optional heated capillary.

Because of the vacuum tight design of the instrument, static and dynamic atmospheres are possible. An optional gas control box and a vacuum pump can be connected.

      All LINSEIS thermo analytical instruments are PC controlled. The individual software modules exclusively run under Microsoft® Windows® operating systems. The complete software consists of 3 modules: temperature control, data acquisition and data evaluation. The 32 bit software incorporates all essential features for measurement preparation, execution, and evaluation of a STA measurement. Thanks to our specialists and application experts, LINSEIS was able to develop comprehensive easy to understand user friendly application software.

        The main parts of cement are tri calcium silicate, di calcium silicate and tri calcium aluminates. After putting on the cement with water different hydrates slowly form. The absorbed water evaporates first, then hydrates of the calcium silicate decompose and at 570°C the hydroxides of calcium, magnesium and aluminum follow. Subsequently, calcium carbonate CO2 splits off.
