Thermogravimetry and Differential Scanning Calorimetry


Model: STA 449 F3 Jupiter

The simultaneous thermal analyzer STA 449 F3 Jupiter from NETZSCH allows the measurement of mass changes and thermal effects between -150°C and 2400°C. The flexibility resulting from the various sensors, the variety of sample crucibles and the wide TGA-measuring range make the system applicable for analysis of a vast range of materials. Easily interchangeable sample holders allow optimal system adaption to diverse application areas (TGA, TGA-DTA and TGA-DSC measurements).
Measurements under vacuum and defined atmospheres (e.g. inert) are possible. The system is controlled by an integrated digital electronic device.
