TA Instruments recently announced it has acquired Anter Corp. and Anter Laboratories, a privately held manufacturer of high-performance systems that measure thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and heat capacity of a range of materials.

“This acquisition adds powerful technologies that complement TA Instruments’ market-leading thermal analysis product line,” said Terry Kelly, president of TA Instruments. “The combination of TA and Anter technologies and the integration into TA’s worldwide sales and technical support organizations will greatly benefit scientists who need to characterize the thermophysical properties of high-temperature materials.”

Key products developed by Anter include laser and xenon flash systems designed to measure thermal diffusivity and heat capacity of materials up to 2800°C, dilatometer systems to measure thermal expansion, and guarded heat flow meters that measure thermal conductivity of materials in accordance with ASTM standards. Anter systems are used by scientists that develop and characterize ceramics, metals, and glasses for use in a range of industries, including electronics, energy, and aerospace.
