Differential Scanning Calorimeter

Heat Flow measurements from -180°C up to 2400°C

The Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the most popular measurement thechnique to detect endothermic and exothermic transitions like the determination of transformation temperatures and enthalpy of solids and liquids as a function of temperature. Therefore the sample and reference are maintained at nearly the same temperature throughout the experiment and the heatflux will be measured.

Because Linseis has many years of experience in constructing Differential Scanning Calorimeter, we have been able to meet highest demands for each request from research / development and quality control in a temperature range from -180°C to 2400°C and a pressure range from vacuum up to 300 bar.

The instrument is used to characterize polymers, pharmaceuticals, foods/biologicals, organic chemicals and inorganics.

The following interesting physical properties of materials can be measured:
Enthalpy, melting energy, specific heat, glass point, crystallinity, reaction enthalpy, thermal stability, oxidation stability, aging, purity, phase transformation, eutectics, polymorphs, product identification, curing and cure kinetics.
