Multiple Module Calorimeter (MMC)A multiple mode calorimeter device consisting of a base unit and exchangeable modules. One module is prepared for accelerating rate calorimetry (ARC), the ARC-Module. A second one is used for scanning tests (Scanning Module) and a third one is related to battery testing for coin cells (Coin Cell Module).MMC

Multiple Module Calorimeter

The NETZSCH development team has created a totally new calorimeter system which can be used in commercial R&D, universities and research centers and QC/QA of various industries.

Like a DSC, the Multiple Module Calorimeter, MMC 274 Nexus®, measures chemical reactions and phase changes, but on gram-size samples.

This allows for organic/inorganic multiphase mixtures/slurries testing. Like an Accelerating Rate Calorimetry (ARC)The method describing isothermal and adiabatic test procedures used to detect thermally exothermic decomposition reactions.ARC®, it can run AdiabaticAdiabatic describes a system or measurement mode without any heat exchange with the surroundings. This mode can be realized using a calorimeter device according to the method of accelerating rate calorimetry (ARC). The main purpose of such a device is to study scenarios and thermal runaway reactions. A short description of the adiabatic mode is “no heat in – no heat out”.adiabatic tests necessary for process safety. The Multiple Module Calorimeter, MMC 274 Nexus®, successfully creates the synergy of two wellproven methods, DSC and ARC®.
