THW-L2 Thermal Conductivity Instrument Meter Transient Hot Wire

Transient Hot Wire

The Transient Hot Wire (THW-L2) Liquid Thermal Conductivity Meter is a portable measurement system for direct determination of the thermal conductivity of liquids and pastes. The THW-L2 follows international standard ASTM D7896-14, and was designed with speed and operational simplicity in mind. Using a non-stationary measurement approach, the THW-L2 uses rapid test times to limit convective effects for samples with a wide range of viscosities.

Hot Disk Transient Plane Source

The Hot Disk TPS is widely used for the accurate measurement of absolute thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of solids, liquids, pastes, and powders. This non-destructive method has a thermal conductivity testing range of 0.005 to 1800 W/mK and can be used to measure bulk properties of homogeneous and heterogeneous materials, as well as directional properties for anisotropic materials. This versatility is greatly appreciated by academic and commercial users alike, which has led to more than 1000 publications on a wide variety of applications.

Transient Plane Source – Effusivity Meter

The TPS-EFF (Transient Plane Source-EFFusivity) is a portable meter for direct determination of thermal effusivity of textiles and other low effusivity materials, in accordance with ASTM D7984-16. With a single measurement of 2 or 10 seconds in duration, materials can be accurately measured for thermal effusivity.

Guarded Heat Flow Meter

The Guarded Heat Flow Meter (GHFM-02) follows ASTM E1530-19 for testing thermal resistance and thermal conductivity of solids, such as metals, polymers and composites. The easy to operate GHFM-02 follows the trusted steady-state approach, with the addition of a guard to limit the effects of lateral heat loss. This design, allows testing of a wide range of materials with low to medium thermal conductivity.

Differential Scanning – Calorimeter

The Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC-L600) is a powerful thermal analysis instrument that measures the heat flow of a sample as a function of time or temperature. The DSC-L600 has been designed to be a cost-effective instrument that is well suited for research or QC applications. The instrument communicates with the PC via a RS232/USB connection. The specially designed heat flux plate has demonstrated more than twice the sensitivity than other heat flow type DSC’s on the market. The reproducibility is excellent, and the noise level is virtually unnoticeable due to a precision high gain, low noise differential amplifier.

  • High-sensitivity heat flux design
  • A stable and reproducible baseline
  • Temperature range: -150°C to 725°C

Thermogravimetric Analyzer

The Thermogravimetric Analyzer TGA-1000/1500 is a thermal analysis instrument that measures weight changes as a function of temperature or time. The system allows for multiple heating, cooling, and isothermal segments to be linked together to achieve a complex profile. Automatic gas switching is also supported during the temperature program. The vertical hangdown design offers stable and smooth weight readings to be recorded during the experiment. The TGA’s small mass furnace responds quickly to changes in the temperature profile and cools down quickly for fast turn around between experiments. Typical analyses for a TGA-1000/1500 include percent weight loss, onset temperature calculations and residual weight. The TGA utilizes the advanced and easy to use Infinity Pro Windows software. The acquisition program sets up the experiment and plots the real-time data. The Analysis program performs all calculations and provides hard copy outputs.
