Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) / Thermogravimetry (TG)

NETZSCH instruments for thermogravimetry have a compact design and are equipped with high-resolution balance systems. The top-loading sample arrangement allows for easy operation and measurement of the temperature directly at the sample.

Almost all NETZSCH thermobalances are vacuum-tight and allow for measurement of mass changes under defined atmospheres. The optional c-DTA® signal additionally yields information on exothermal and endothermal processes in the sample, even if they are not related to a mass change.

Heated coupling adapters for gas analysis systems such as QMS, FTIR or GC-MS can be added on to many thermobalances. The thermogravimetric analyzers of the 400 series can be equipped with DSC and/or DTA sample carriers at any time in order to form full-fledged TGA-DSC or TGA-DTA instruments (STA).

NETZSCH thermobalances meet respective instrument and applications standards, including ISO 11358, ISO/DIS 9924, ASTM E1131, ASTM D3850, DIN 51006.

TG 209 F1 Libra®

Flexibility with the fittings of this premium instrument for thermogravimetry allow it to cover almost any imaginable application in the range up to 1100°C. The system has many outstanding features: BeFlat® function allows or immediate measurement upon switching on the unit, the system’s heating rates of up to 200 K/min allow for faster results, while its corrosion-resistant ceramic furnace withstands even fluorine- or chlorine-containing polymers, c-DTA® function for the detection of exothermal and endothermal reactions.

TG 209 F3 Tarsus®

This easy-to-use instrument for thermogravimetry was developed especially for routine applications in the field of plastics, but also finds application in the chemical industry. With a range of up to 1000°C, it is the ideal starter unit and offers the patented c-DTA® for the detection of exothermal and endothermal reactions with DSC.
