STA PT 1600

High-temperature STA with oven configuration up to 2400°C


To the point

The LINSEIS STA PT 1600 TG-DSC simultaneous thermobalance is our high-end product and consists of a digital balance and a sample holder with integrated thermocouple. The thermobalance enables the measurement of samples with a sample weight of 5 or 25 g (including measuring system). Flexibility for all samples is ensured by interchangeable furnace types (optional turntable for several furnaces) for the wide temperature range from -150°C to 2400°C.

With direct access to our application experts via the software, you can get advice on the correct measurement procedure and evaluation of results. This direct communication ensures optimal results and maximizes the efficiency of your measurements for precise analysis and research as well as a smooth process flow.

Electronic Upgrade

The new measuring electronics offer significant performance improvements, inspired by the architecture of the „Linseis Digital Balance“. The benefits of this new digital balance architecture include:

    • Minimization of drift: Ensures consistently high precision over long periods of time.
    • Improved resolution: Unique sub-microgram resolution.
    • Highest accuracy: Improves the reliability of your measurement results.
    • Reproducibility: Ensures consistent results with repeated measurements.

Design Improvements

The new device design is characterized by an elegant aluminum casing that is both robust and aesthetically pleasing. The LED status bar provides a user-friendly visualization of important information. A touch panel enables intuitive operation and contributes to a modern user experience that combines comfort and functionality. The new device design focuses on ergonomic operation.

New Hardware Features:

    • Tri-couple DTA measuring system. DTA measuring system with three thermocou ples for the smallest endo-/exothermic effects in inhomogeneous samples
    • Jacketed DTA measuring system for corrosive samples
    • Patented „forced flow“ method. Enables forced flow through your TG or TG-DTA. Our system enables forced flow through the sample, whereby up to 100 % reaction gas is fed directly to the sample. This novel method enables scalable measurements for the first time, allowing precise analysis under real conditions.
