Thermal Analysis Lab
DSC 8500 Hyper-enabled Double-Furnace Differential Scanning Calorimeter (Perkin Elmer)
It permits studies of various physical and chemical changes (melting, crystallization, glassy transition, evaporation, sublimation, polymorphism, dehydration, thermal decomposition).
Typical applications for the system: characterization of pharmaceutical materials, polymorph characterization in pharmaceuticals, process simulation in plastics.
STA 6000 Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer/FTIR Frontier (Perkin Elmer)
STA is a simultaneous technique that determines the weight changes of the sample (TG) and measures changes in temperature between the sample and the reference as a function of temperature and/or time (DTA). Coupling STA 6000 to an FT-IR spectrometer is ideal for applications where it is important to identify the species evolved from a material upon heating. These include investigation of decomposition mechanisms, identification of residual solvents in drug preparations, and safety and thermal stability of polymers and new materials.
TGA 4000 Thermogravimetric Analyzer (Perkin Elmer)
TGA 4000 allows measurements of changes in sample mass in a strictly defined atmosphere, provides detection of exo- and endothermic effects.
Typical TGA 4000 applications: measurements of sample volatility, moisture content, oxidation stability, decomposition temperatures, carbon black content, performance of stabilizers, ash content.
PYRIS TGA 1/GC/MS Clarus 680 SQ8 (Perkin Elmer)
TGA1-GC/MS allows separation and identification of organic gas components emitted from the sample analyzed in the thermobalance. Because of its ability to detect very low levels of material in complex mixtures, the TG-GC/MS is a powerful tool for quality control, safety, and product development.
Key applications of the hyphenated techniques: molecular structure analysis, identification of decomposition products for safety applications, determination of trace contaminates and residual solvents, enhanced separation of overlapping evolved gases.
Flash 2000 Automatic Elemental Analyzer (Thermo Scientific)
Modern and compact analyzer designed for unattended and full determination of CHNS and oxygen in any type of sample from solid to liquid.The analyzer allows a variety of configurations tailored to the application they serve: organic/inorganic chemistry and pharmaceuticals, environmental analysis, petrochemistry and energy, agronomy and marine science, human and animal samples, isotope analysis.
