Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA)

By coupling a thermal analysis instrument with a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (QMS), it is possible to detect and identify evolved gases (via evolved gas analysis, or EGA) in exact time correlation with thermal analysis signals. NETZSCH has over 30 years of experience in gas transfer and can offer you well-proven MS coupling systems: the unique SKIMMER® Coupling, the capillary coupling for the QMS 403 D Aëolos®, and the GC-MS Coupling.

Combination with an FT-IR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer) has become an absolute must, especially in the polymer-producing, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing has been collaborating with the well-known producer of spectrometers, Bruker Optics GmbH, since 1993. FT-IR coupling is “more than the sum of its parts”. Let our intelligent hardware and software designs work for you!

By means of the unique PulseTA® (pulse thermal analysis), the evolved gas can be analyzed quantitatively, both with QMS and with FT-IR.

Modern coupling methods presented during analytica 2016
TGA/STA - FT-IR Coupling

Different thermal analysis systems can be combined with a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FT-IR), which has proved its efficiency especially in the organic field (instrument for EGA: evolved gas analysis).

STA 409 CD-QMS 403/5 SKIMMER - Coupling System

Highest detection sensitivity through direct coupling of the STA 409 CD with a quadrupole mass spectrometer (QMS) - evolved gas analysis (EGA) method.

PERSEUS® TG 209 F1 Libra® - TGA-FT-IR Coupling

The PERSEUS® TG 209 F1 Libra® is an unmatched alliance between the NETZSCH TG 209 F1 Libra® and a compact FT-IR spectrometer by Bruker Optics. Its design is unprecedented and sets a benchmark for state-of-the-art coupling systems.

TGA/STA-GC-MS Coupling

NETZSCH, in collaboration with JAS (Joint Analytical Systems), has forged a breakthrough improvement in evolved gas analysis (EGA). What sets the new coupling system apart is the fact that the start of the measurement is event-driven. This enables temperature-correlated detection of the substances released, which in turn allows for direct correlation with mass loss steps.

PERSEUS® STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® – STA-FT-IR Coupling

The PERSEUS® STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® is an unmatched alliance between two successful instruments: the NETZSCH STA 449 F1/F3 Jupiter® and the FT-IR spectrometer by Bruker Optics. Its design is unprecedented and sets a benchmark for state-of-the-art coupling systems.

Coupling Extensions
TGA/STA-QMS 403 D Aëolos® - Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer Coupling

The TGA/STA-QMS 403 D Aëolos® is a very compact mass spectrometer with a heated capillary inlet system, specially designed for routine analysis of volatile decomposition products of thermal analysis (instrument for EGA: evolved gas analysis).
