Derivatograph Q 1500
DTA is the simplest and most widely used thermal analysis technique.
The difference in temperature, between the sample and a reference material is recorded while both are subjected to the same heating programm. A single block with symmetrical cavities for the sample and reference is heated in the furnace. The block is chosen to act as a suitable heat-sink, and a sample holder oflow thermal conductivity is included between the block and the sample to ensure an adequate differential temperature signal during a thermal event.
