Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

Differential Scanning Calorimetry provides thermal characterization of solids and liquids, including melting/crystallization behavior, decomposition behavior, purity determination, and specific heat

Netzsch Instruments Maia DSC 200 F3

The Netzsch Instruments Maia DSC 200 F3

Features of the Netzsch Instruments Maia DSC 200 F3

Features of the Netzsch Instruments Maia DSC 200 F3 include:

  • Thermal characterization of solids and liquids
  • By applying a controlled temperature program (isothermal, heating or cooling at constant rates), phase changes can be characterized and/or the specific heat of a material can be determined.
  • Values such as the Onset Temperature, Peak Temperature, Peak Area (i.e. Enthalpy) and/or Glass Transition Temperature (Tg) can be obtained from the resulting curve
  • Atmosphere: Nitrogen
  • Temperature Range: -40 to 600°C
  • Max Heating Rate: 100K/min
  • Temperature Profiles: Isothermal, Heating and Cooling at controlled rates

Applications of the Netzsch Instruments Maia DSC 200 F3

Applications of the Netzsch Instruments Maia DSC 200 F3 include:

  • Melting/crystallization behavior
  • Decomposition behavior
