Thermal Analysis

Thermal Gravimetric Analysis

Thermal-Gravimetric-Analysis-ImageThermo-Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) provides quantitative determination of weight loss or gain on heating, cooling and more. Thermogravimetric analysis uses heat to force reactions and physical changes in materials. The analysis measures the percent weight loss or gain of a test sample while the sample is heated or cooled at a uniform rate in an appropriate environment. The loss or gain in weight over specific temperature ranges provides an indication of the composition of the sample as well as its thermal stability.

Capabilities:

Our TGA analyzer is capable to precisely measure the weight change of the samples during heating up to 1000C in different atmospheric conditions.

 

Thermal Mechanical Analysis

Thermal-Mechanical-Analysis-ImageThermo-Mechanical Analysis (TMA) is a technique used for characterizing the time/temperature/atmospheric behavior of materials. It is a very important tool used by both research and quality control to identify and solve material-related problems. It can be used to measure the temperature-related thermal physical properties over a wide range under various atmospheric conditions.

MRA’s TMA setup of a Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) and a high temperature furnace. The LVDT measures displacement, which relates data to program that is easily manipulated into a variety of measurements. These include shrinkage or expansion of a material over a temperature and/or time range. This information is used to study the compatibility of materials that would be used in conjunction with each other to distinguish if they are a suitable match.

Capabilities:

Our TMA analyzer is capable to precisely measure the length change of the samples during heating up to 1400C in different atmospheric conditions.
