NETZSCH LFA 427 – Now with a range up to 2800°C
Product News Mar 23, 2010
Thermal conductivity and diffusivity are thermophysical material parameters necessary for describing the heat transport properties of a material or component. These physical parameters are the basis for accurate thermotechnical simulations or for the analysis of temperature fields in components for electronic assemblies, power plant turbines or drive units.
The Laser Flash technique is a widely used methods for measurement of thermal diffusivity and conductivity. Quick test execution and exact measurement results, along with the ability to handle a broad range of thermal diffusivity and conductivity applications, are some of the many advantages of this non-contact measuring method.
Until recently, the temperature range of the LFA 427 had been restricted to a maximum of 2000°C. Now as of 2010, a new version is available which allows measurements up to 2800°C.
