Revolutionary Sensor Concept
The Chip-DSC 100 combines the advantages of chip technology with the requirements of our previous DSC models. Various options such as a sample robot, UV attachment and Raman spectroscopy transform the Chip-DSC 100 into a highly versatile measuring instrument.
The arrangement of the Chip-Sensor allows superior reproducibility and due to the low mass outstanding temperature control and heating rates of up to 1000°C/min. The integrated sensor is easily user exchangeable and available for a low cost.
The integrated design of the chip-sensor delivers superior raw data, which enables a direct analysis without pre- or post-processing of heat flow data.
New Chip-Sensor Technology
Worlds only commercial Heat Flux DSC with integrated heater and temperature sensor. Unmatched sensitivity, time constant and heating / cooling rates.
Highest sensitivity – for detection of melts and weak transitions
The innovative low mass Chip DSC sensor design enables us to offer a Heat Flux DSC sensor with unmatched response rate.
Benchmark resolution – precise separation of close lying events
The unique sensor design permits benchmark resolution and perfect separation of overlapping effects.

The 50/150 bar high pressure cell enables OIT stability tests to monitor aging of polymers, oils and fats. Processes under high pressures can be simulated and optimized, e.g. sorption, chemical reactions etc.
The Chip-DSC 100 can be equipped with a CCD camera to observe the sample during the measurement. The visualization of the sample gives a much deeper insight to phase transitions and decomposition processes.
The Photo cell allows measurements under UV light to investigate UV curing systems. Due to the very short time constant of the chip sensor, also fast UV curing reactions in the subsecond time scale can be measured.
The coupling of the Chip-DSC with a Raman spectrometer can be realized very cost effectively. In the Raman spectra the amorphous and crystalline phases can be detected very precisely and in situ.
Sample Robot DSC
The sample robot for up to 96 samples increases the productivity significantly. The instrument can run automatically overnight or at the weekend. Together with the intuitive and intelligent software it reduces labour costs and saves time.
Low temperature DSC
The cooling can be realized with a variety of cooling options: intracooler, liquid nitrogen cooling or a Peltier cooling system. The available temperature range at subambient conditions can be extended down to -180°C.
The all new Rhodium Software greatly enhances your workflow as the intuitive data handling only requires minimum parameter input.
AutoEval offers a valuable guidance for the user when evaluating standard processes such as glass transitions or melting points.

Application example: Measurement of PET granulate
The analysis of polymers is one of the main applications of DSC. Effects like glass transitions, melting and crystallization points are of interest and often very hard to detect. The new Linseis Chip-DSC provides high resolution and sensitivity, making it an ideal instrument for this kind of analysis. As an example, a PET granulate was heated, quench cooled to freeze the amorphous state and afterwards measured by Chip-DSC with a linear heating rate of 50°C/min. The curve shows a significant glass transition at 77°C, followed by a recrystallization of the amorphous parts at 170°C and a melting peak at 295°C.
