The highlights

Simply put – the fastest, easiest way to measure thermal conductivity.

The third generation of C-Therm Technologies technology expands the capabilities of this rapid, non-destructive thermal conductivity and effusivity testing instrument to a whole new level. Designed to provide simple, highly accurate thermal characterization for lab, quality control and production environments, the C-Therm Technologies TCi Thermal Property Analyzer requires no calibration or sample preparation. The system has broad testing capabilities (0.0 to 500 W/mK) in a wide range of temperatures (–50°Cto 200°C). The TCi can be equipped with one or two sensors for increased capacity, and provides accurate thermal analysis of solids, liquids, powders and pastes in less time than any other instrument – only 5 seconds. And because the procedure is non-destructive, samples remain intact, undisturbed and reusable after testing.

C-Therm TCi complies with the requirements of ASTM standard D7984 on Standard Test Method for Measurement of Thermal Effusivity.
