NETZSCH Announces Flexibility in Thermal Analysis with new NETZSCH STA 449 F1 Jupiter®
Product News Apr 24, 2008
Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA) is the term for the simultaneous application of the methods of Thermogravimetry (TG) and Dynamic Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) to one and the same sample.
NETZSCH announces introduction of its new STA 449 F1 Jupiter®. According to NETZSCH, unlimited configuration flexibility and unmatched performance are the foundations for a great variety of application possibilities in the fields of ceramics, metals, plastics, and composites over a broad temperature range (-150…2000°C).
Quantitative determinations regarding thermal stability, decomposition behavior, composition, phase transitions and specific heat are included in the capabilities of the new STA.
The top-pan sample arrangement in a vacuum-tight construction, complemented by a balance system with long-term stability (25ng resolution at a weighing range of 5g!) make the NETZSCH STA 449 F1 Jupiter® to the locomotive of Thermal Analysis in the areas of research, development and quality assurance.
Various furnaces are available which can be interchanged by the user; in addition, the company offers a double hoisting device for two furnaces, pluggable sample carriers (TG, TG-DSC, etc.), an automatic sample changer (ASC) and plenty of accessories, such as sample holders in varied of forms and materials. A supplementary MS- and/or FTIR-coupling system turns the STA 449 F1 Jupiter® into a chemical analysis station.
