The new DSC 404 F3 Pegasus® from NETZSCH is a heat flow calorimeter (DSC), while the STA 449 F3 Jupiter® can simultaneously record the mass change (thermogravimetry, TG) and the DSC signal on the same sample. These instruments can address many quality assurance issues over a broad temperature range (-150 to 2000°C), including the composition of ceramics (e.g., binder content) or co-polymers, melting behavior, thermal stability, oxidation stability, and glass transitions.
The optional automatic sample changer (ASC) for up to 20 samples, the automatic evacuation and re-filling function, and the evaluation macros all provide for maximum efficiency, while the top-loading, vacuum-tight construction make the STA 449 F3 Jupiter and DSC 404 F3 Pegasus user-friendly and robust. The instruments also provide high sensor sensitivity, a large weighing range of 35 g (at a resolution of 1 µg) and excellent reproducibility.
