Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) / Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA)

Thanks to its versatility and explanatory power, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the most-employed Thermal Analysis method. NETZSCH DSC instruments work according to the heat flow principle and are characterized by a three-dimensional symmetrical construction with homogeneous heating. Sensors with high calorimetric sensitivity, short time constants and a condensation-free sample chamber in the calorimeter cell guarantee high detection sensitivity and stable, reproducible baselines over the entire life cycle of a calorimeter: ideal qualifications for successful application in research and academia, materials development and quality control.

Of course, our Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC) meet the respective instrument and application standards, including: ISO 11357, ASTM E967, ASTM E968, ASTM E793, ASTM D3895, ASTM D3417, ASTM D3418, DIN 51004, DIN 51007, DIN 53765.
