The Thermogravimetric Analyzer TGA-1000/1500 is a thermal analysis instrument that measures weight changes as a function of temperature or time. The system allows for multiple heating, cooling, and isothermal segments to be linked together to achieve a complex profile. Automatic gas switching is also supported during the temperature program.
The vertical hangdown design offers stable and smooth weight readings to be recorded during the experiment. The TGA’s small mass furnace responds quickly to changes in the temperature profile and cools down quickly for fast turn around between experiments. Typical analyses for a TGA-1000/1500 include percent weight loss, onset temperature calculations and residual weight.
The TGA utilizes the advanced and easy to use Infinity Pro Windows software. The acquisition program sets up the experiment and plots the real-time data. The Analysis program performs all calculations and provides hard copy outputs.

THERMOGRAVIMETRIC ANALYZER CAPABILITIES
Our TGA-1000/1500 utilizes a small micro furnace with a very small swept volume. This allows for rapid heating rates and excellent atmosphere control. The dual purge system allows for quick gas switching and is plumbed in full stainless to keep Oxygen out of the system. A variety of TGA-1000/1500 pans gives the user a choice of sizes and materials to best suit the materials being tested.
The proprietary micro balance is very stable and has excellent precision making for smooth high-resolution weight results. With a 24 bit Analog to Digital converter, all temperature and weight readings are ultra precise. The TGA-1000/1500 is fully controlled by Infinity Pro Windows based software and real time plots show what is happening during the experiment. Background operation allows multiple analyzers to be run at the same time and data analysis to be performed at anytime.
TGA-1000/1500 is commonly used to determine characteristics of materials such as polymers, to determine degradation temperatures, absorbed moisture content of materials, the level of inorganic and organic components in materials, decomposition points of explosives, and solvent residues. Both TGA units excel in performance making them a valuable tool in the lab. Both require very low maintenance and are quickly calibrated by the operator.
