Differential Scanning Calorimeter

Characterize heat gain/loss associated with phase transitions

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) quantifies the energy changes in reactions such as melting, transition, crystallization and glass transition temperature and is mainly used for research and development; and quality control in the fields of polymer, pharmaceutical. 

Rigaku’s DSC are heat-flux types. Several models are available depending on the maximum temperature and sensitivity difference. 

The high-sensitivity type DSCvesta has several available options, such as a refrigerated cooling system, an automatic sample changer, sample observation, depending on the objective of the measurement. 

DSCvesta Features

Quick gas substitution enabled by compact furnace
Remarkable heating and cooling rates that enhance the efficiency of measurement
Safety is emphasized on the entire system
Measuring temperature range: -170 to 725°C
An optional cooling unit is used for temperatures below ambient
Inert gas flow is required for temperatures above 500°C
Sample observation DSCvesta
Ambient to 350℃
(When using with cooling unit lowest temperature: -70℃)
