Thermal Analysis

DSC-Agita-white-background-1

escubed are now offering extended material characterisation services with the addition of thermal instrumentation to our extensive particle characterisation equipment. Providing consultancy and contract analysis services using state of the art equipment with expert technical knowledge across a wide range of sectors.

Thermal analysis is important to many industries including pharmaceuticals, polymer, chemicals, food and many more to measure a huge range of physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature. In all these methods, the sample is subjected to a heating, cooling or isothermal temperature program

escubed’s has purchased TA Instrument’s top of the range Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), the Discovery DSC 2500. It is an important and frequently used instrument in analytical, development, formulation and Quality Assurance (QA) laboratories within the pharmaceuticals, polymers, nanomaterials and food industries. DSC measures enthalpy changes in samples due to changes in their physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature and time.

This investment is able to provide our customers information of material kinetic events like curing, volatilization, melting and decomposition, material thermal properties such as glass transition, heat capacity and heat enthalpy.

Benefits of Discovery DSC 2500:

  • o New Fusion Cell with patented technology for unriveted performance in baseline flatness, sensitivity, resolution, reproducibility and reliability.
  • o Heat flow technology for ultimate DSC performance and unique capability to conduct and store heat capacity measurements in a single run.
  • o Wide range of cooling and heating options from -90˚C to 400˚C.

Modulated DSC (MDSC) advantages:

  • o Separation of complex and overlapping transitions into more easily interpreted components
  • o Increased sensitivity for detecting weak transitions
  • o More accurate measurement of polymer crystallinity
  • o Direct measurement of heat capacity
