The TCi is designed to provide rapid, non-destructive thermal testing capabilities. Based on Mathis’ advancement of the modified hot wire technique, the technology offers reductions in test times and sample preparation.
Thermal characteristics of a material can be accurately determined in seconds over a wide temperature range. The procedure also requires access to only one side of the sample - which can be virtually unlimited in size and thickness.
A key benefit of the technology is its ability to test without destroying, damaging or changing the material properties of the sample.
This capability make Mathis sensors valuable in R&D labs as well as in manufacturing settings for homogeneity testing of raw materials, goods in process and finished product.
"Our range of sensitive thermal analyzers and calorimeters are ideally completed by the unique simple and powerful TCi Thermal Conductivity Testing System," said Dr. Gilles Widawski, Setaram Instrumentation CEO.
"Thanks to this partnership, we can offer a global solution to any lab manager involved in material thermal behaviour, from rapid thermal testing to complete thermal analysis."
"This global solution is especially dedicated to labs’ eager buyers of thermal testing and analysis solutions such as pharmaceuticals, petrochemistry, bio & food products, ceramics…," added Dr. Widawski.
"The opportunity to partner with Setaram on the distribution of the TCi product is a great benefit to Mathis and our customers," commented Dr. Nancy Mathis, President and CEO of Mathis Instruments.
"Setaram can offer the broad reach, international exposure and support that the lab instrumentation market requires, while our own focus remains with on-line process solutions using similar technology."
"Customers worldwide can now access this unique Mathis technology from a company with a broad range of themal products and services."
