Fired Tiles — Thermal Expansion

Two colored tiles were simultaneously heated at 3K/min to 1100°C. The curves for the relative expansion of these fired tiles show significant differences in expansivity and quartz content (>567°C). The Proteus® software allows a graphic display of the expansion difference in a separate curve. (measurement with DIL 402 CD)

DIL 402 CD - Vacuum-tight, horizontal pushrod dilatometer

Expansion measurements at two samples, sample comparisons and differential measurements with a calibration standard are the application fields of the double and differential dilatometer. A higher sample throughput for routine applications and an easy and fast calibration are the interesting aspects of this new instrument concept.
