13976 Thermomechanical Analyzer
Mettler Toledo TC15 with DSC20 Thermomechanical Analyzer
Differential Scanning Calorimetry
The DSC20 Module
The DSC20 allows DSC measurements from ambient to 600 °C. When the DSC20 is placed in a deep freezer, measurements from -20 °C are possible. The measurement is based on the Boersma or heat flux principle.
The DSC20 cell is equipped with the glass sensor with a time constant of 7 s. The ceramic sensor can also be used, but a prerequisite is a silver furnace with a flat and clean heater plate.
The experiment parameters are composed in the Personal Computer and sent to the TC15 where the segments of the temperature program are controlled. The purge gas is adjusted by the needle valve of a flow meter.
During a measurement, the data are transferred to the Personal Computer for the online curve in the module control window. At the same time they are available on the fluorescent display of the TC15. Scroll through the lines of the display by ROTATE.
At the TC15 display you also get messages such as INSERT SAMPLE. On the keypad of the TC15 you confirm the message by the OK key or you may abort the running experiment by the RESET key.
