Simultaneous Thermogravimetry – Differential Scanning Calorimetry

Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA) is based on standards, e.g., ISO 11358, ASTM E793, DIN 51004, DIN 51006, DIN 51007. It generally refers to the simultaneous application of Thermogravimetry (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to one and the same sample in a single instrument.

The simultaneous application of Thermogravimetry (TG) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to a single sample in an STA instrument yields more information than separate application in two different instruments:

Since the early years of its existence, NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH has given high priority to the development and continuing optimization of its Simultaneous Thermal Analyzers; these have today taken on a market-leading position as a result of their perfect technology.

The respective instrument and application standards for TGA and DSC (see respective sections) are of course also met by NETZSCH STA instruments.

The New STA 509 Jupiter® Series

The modular design of the STA allows for easy exchange of furnaces and sensors to accommodate multiple applications over a wide temperature range from -150°C to 2400°C. The top-loading design provides ideal performance and easy of use, making it the obvious choice for a flexible analytical system and evolved gas analysis. The vacuum-tight design and meticulous control of gas flows allow precise handling of high-purity atmospheres with respect to various inert, oxidizing, reducing and corrosive gases. 

A wide range of accessories, including humidity and water vapor generators, expand the application possibilities. Furthermore, the integration of Evolved Gas Analysis with MS, FT-IR, or GC-MS systems significantly enhances the analytical potential of the STA 509 Jupiter® series.

The advantages are obvious: 

The test conditions are perfectly identical for the TGA and DSC signals (same atmosphere, gas flow rate, vapor pressure on the sample, heating rate, thermal contact to the sample crucible and sensor, radiation effect, etc.). Furthermore, sample throughput Is improved as more information can be gathered from each test run.
