Simultaneous thermal analysis (STA) is performed to determine simultaneous weight changes (TG) and caloric reaction (DSC) of a sample in the temperature range from –150°C up to 2400°C.

Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer from Linseis, is one instrument which combine Thermogravimetric Analyzer TGA and Differential Scanning Calorimeter DSC. Furthermore MS (Mass Spectrometer) and FTIR Spectrometer couplings can be attached to obtain unique additional information.

With these combined techniques, the materials properties can be measured by STA are such as melting behaviour, reaction enthalpy, degree of crystallinity, glass transitions, oxidative stability, specific heat capacity, thermokinetics, solid-solid transitions, mass changes, thermal stability, decomposition, oxidation, reduction, composition analysis, etc.

The advantages of the STA instruments from Linseis, especially for the materials research, are highest precision, highest resolution and long term drift stability.
