Characterize heat gain/loss associated with phase transitions

DSC is a thermoanalytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature. DSC can be used to measure a number of characteristic properties of materials. Using this technique it is possible to observe fusion and crystallization events as well as glass transition temperatures and can be also used to study oxidation, as well as other chemical reactions.

It is widely used in industrial settings as a quality control instrument due to its applicability in evaluating sample purity and for studying polymer curing.

Basically, Rigaku has the lineup of two kinds of heat-flex DSC meeting market needs: standard type and high-temperature type. The standard DSC has further an extensive lineup of cooling systems.

We can set maximum 24 samples and aside from continuous measurements, it can also perform single measurement as well as interrupt-a-sequence measurement.
