Thermal conductivity of liquids using the THW L3 sensor


In this webinar, Thermtest’s Product Line Manager for Transient Hot-Wire (THW) method will discuss the thermal conductivity of liquids using our in-house THW-L3 sensor.

The THW-L3 sensor is fully compatible with Thermtest’s MP-2 portable device. The sensor uses the Transient Hot-Wire method to measure the thermal properties of liquids and pastes. With a test time of 1 second, the sensor can accurately measure the thermal conductivity of a liquid by monitoring the temperature rise over time in the sample.

The MP-2 measurement platform is a portable, lightweight handheld instrument that is compatible with various sensors that perform simple and accurate measurements of thermal properties, either in the field or the laboratory. The various primary sensors controlled by MP-2 are designed to conform to the ASTM standard associated with the respective method.

About the Speaker

Dr. Sofia Mylona is an internationally recognized expert in the area of thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Hot-Wire (THW) method. She is a graduate Chemist from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (A.U.Th.) in Greece and holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in the same university. During her Ph.D., she designed and constructed a novel Vibrating-Wire Viscometer for measuring high-viscosity liquids for which she received the 1st Metrology award in Greece. In the last 7 years, Dr. Mylona’s research is focused on thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Hot-Wire technique.
