The highlights

Large volume & high temperature TGA/STA-EGA (ambient to 2000°C)

This is an extremely high performance weighing module used with the TGA 96. This balance can weigh samples up to 100 g and is well suited to measuring both micro-quantities of samples (a few milligrams) as well as large, dense samples while maintaining measurement resolution to within a microgram whatever the mass analyzed. 96 Line TGA/STA offers EGA temperature controlled coupling devices, enabling simultaneous heated capillary based MS, or GC/MS* connections

Simultaneous TGA-DTA/DSC measurements are available.

Simultaneous TGA-DTA: – Ambient to 1600°C, – Ambient to 1750°C, – Ambient to 2000°. Simultaneous TGA-DSC: – Ambient to 1500°C, – Ambient to 1600°C.

Pierced alumina crucibles
Alumina based crucibles pierced with numerous orifices to improve sample / gas interactions are available. 18mL and 4.5mL versions are available.

FTIR coupling
A heated MS or FTIR 200°C coupling was designed for the TG96 line.

Evolved Gas AnalysisSimultaneous MS, GC/MS*

Thermostated interfaces up to 300°C


In addition to the TGA 96, SETARAM proposes different accessories and software that permit, in particular:
– TGA measurements in corrosive atmospheres
– Controlled rate TGA measurement (CRTA: controlled rate thermal analysis)

Evolved Gas Analysis

96 Line offers temperature controlled coupling devices, enabling simultaneous MS, or GC/MS* connections. The coupling device is heated up to 200°C to avoid gas condensation and is completely insulated for a safe handling. 96 Line can be equipped on request with the state-of-the-art heated “Autoinjector” interface for TG-GC/MS* experiments.

*GC/MS is available on request.
