High-performance simultaneous TGA & DTA / DSC (ambient / 2400°C) with Evolved Gas Analysis
SETSYS Evolution is the standard for high performance TGA, TG-DSC and TG-DTA application. It is based on a complete modular thermal analysis platform for – TGA, DTA and DSC – Simultaneous TGA/DTA and TGA/DSC – The key to the SETSYS TGA-DTA / DSC is Setaram’s unique symmetrical balance, a highly robust and flexible furnace configuration offering unique performance and the lowest operational costs of any system available.
SETSYS Evolution offers EGA temperature controlled coupling devices, enabling simultaneous MS, FTIR or GC/MS connections. SETSYS Evolution is also the base structure of the unique Supersonic System that allows a fast transfer of the evolved molecules to the MS ionizer, avoiding condensation and recombination of the molecules.
The SETSYS Evolution can be configured to operate up to 2400°C and also use controlled humidity, vacuum and highly aggressive atmospheres.See also: SETSYS Evolution DTA/DSC SETSYS Evolution TGA SETSYS Evolution TGA-DTA/DSC
NEW PARTS AND OPTIONS
Quenching / Fast heating
This option allows the sample to be inserted in, or removed from, the hot zone of the furnace during a measurement. The insertion and removal is programmed from the Calisto software.
A gas purification system is available to remove trace oxygen from the inert / carrier gas flow. It is based on a zirconium foil placed in a slot in the hot part of the anti-convection tube above the sample.
An alumina sleeved protected thermocouple was designed to prevent corrosion/damage from the gases evolved from the sample. It is available with or without the above mentioned oxygen probe. Various thermocouples types are available up to 1750°C.
Hook for disc shaped samples
Platinum based hooks which allow hanging of disc-shaped samples to the balance are available. Sample diameters vary between 10 and 16mm.
New ceramic crucibles
Yttria and Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) crucibles for TG-DSC and TG-DTA versions, with optional covers are available. The crucible’s volume is 100 µL, diameter 5mm and height 8mm.
