With STA (Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer) you get either a TGA (Thermo Gravimetric Analysis) or DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) are added on as an extra service for both methods.
The STA tests your product for Specific heat capacity, kinetics of reactions, thermal stability, investigation of melting behavior, phase transitions, mass changes, decomposition behavior, corrosion studies and analysis of composition.
Simultaneous thermal analysis refers to application of thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry in a single instrument.
The information gathered can be enhanced by coupling the simultaneous thermal analysis instrument to Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy for the analysis of gas phase composition.
Used to study the properties of a material as they change with temperature, by measuring loss of mass with increased temperature over time.
Measures the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a specimen.
Transitions within the material when exposed to heat.
Gas Analyzer; obtain an infrared spectrum of absorption or emission of gas. And collects simultaneously high-spectral-resolution data over a wide spectral range. Used for qualitative and quantitative analysis of gas phase mixtures (during thermal reactions in STA).
