Differential Thermal Analysis
Measurement Setups for Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)
The Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) is a very popular thermal analysis technique to measure endothermic and exothermic transitions as a function of temperature. The instrument is used to characterize pharmaceuticals, food/biologicals, organic chemicals and inorganics. Transitions measured include glass transitions, crystallization, melting and sublimation.
The modular concept of the DSC and DTA systems allows the use of different furnaces with a temperature range from -150 up to 2400°C, different DTA measuring systems and many different crucibles. The vacuum tight design enables quantitiative enthalpy determination under cleanest atmospheres as well as under vacuum of 10E-5 mbar. Additionally the systems can be coupled to a MS or FTIR.
Differential Thermal Analysis instrument and application standards such as: ASTM C 351, D 3417, D 3418, D 3895, D 4565, E 793, E 794, DIN 51004, DIN 51007, ISO 10837 are met by our DTA (Differential Thermal Analyzer).
