ELTRA thermogravimetric analyzers are available in various configurations to serve the different requirements of laboratory and production applications. All TGA models are controlled via PC and use a heated furnace which is connected to an integrated balance. Similarly, all TGA analyzers are supplied with approximately 15 ccm ceramic crucibles.
The sample feeding for the TGA Thermostep is done manually. After selecting the SOP in the software the pre-defined temperatures and gases are applied to the sample to determine the various thermogravimetric parameters.
The TGA Thermochain operates at a fixed furnace temperature required for the determination of a single thermogravimetric parameter. The samples are fed to the analyzer by an external autoloader and are ejected after the measurement, allowing for a high throughput. It is also possible to transfer a sample from one TGA Thermochain to another which operates at a different temperature. By using several TGA Thermochain analyzers in a row, it is possible to determine various parameters.
