Seminar: Advanced Measuring Techniques

for DIL /TMA, DSC/DTA, TGA and Combined Systems (STA) and Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA/MS/FTIR/GC-MS)

Date City Country
22 Sep – 24 Sep 2020 Portoroz Slovenia Register

Users of Thermal Analysis often end up finding that – although DSC, TG and STA and DIL, TMA instruments are quite easy to operate – it is in no way a trivial matter to draw meaningful conclusions from the resulting curves. Years of experience are often needed to be able to correctly correlate and interpret effects.
The objective of this seminar is to show how to optimally plan measurements and systematically approach an evaluation, as well as how to read sample properties from the curves.
The topics are DSC, TG, STA, DIL, TMA measurements on a great variety of materials. Extension possibilities using evolved gas analysis (EGA) will be discussed.
Participants may also choose to have their own measurements discussed during the seminar. In order to take advantage of this, please provide us with the respective data no later than two weeks prior to the start of the event, as measurement files (original NETZSCH files; no PDFs or graphic printouts).
Please send your data with the corresponding questions and background information to: NGB_Academy‎@‎netzsch.com
The seminar will have a limited number of participants in order to guarantee effective and personalized work.

After the event, you will receive the seminar documents (lectures and workshops) and the data for measurements discussed during the course in digital form.

Every seminar participant will receive a certificate of participation.
