Thermal Analysers

Thermogravimetric Analyser (TGA)

TA Instruments invites you to experience the world?s finest line of Thermogravimetric Analysers, the Discovery TGA 55, TGA 550, and TGA 5500. Discover the advanced engineering and attention to detail that provides enhancements in every aspect of TGA technology and a new level of user experience.

From the most cost effective and flexible TGA with industry leading performance, to the most advanced TGA available, there is a Discovery TGA to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Introducing The New Discovery TGA:


Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC)

Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC) measures temperatures and heat flows associated with thermal transitions in a material. Common usage includes investigation, selection, comparison and end-use performance evaluation of materials in research, quality control and production applications. Properties measured by TA Instruments’ DSC techniques include glass transitions, “cold” crystallization, phase changes, melting, crystallization, product stability, cure / cure kinetics, and oxidative stability.

TA Instruments’ patented Tzero™ DSC technology, is a revolutionary and fundamentally more accurate way of measuring heat flow. It provides significant improvements in baseline flatness, transition resolution and sensitivity. Tzero™ technology allows direct measurement of heat capacity, and makes Modulated® DSC experiments both faster and more accurate.

The NEW Discovery DSC -

Simultaneous Thermal Analyser (SDT)

TA Instruments invites you to experience the world’s finest Simultaneous DSC/TGA, the Discovery SDT 650. Discover the advanced engineering and attention to detail that provides enhancements in every aspect of performance and a new level of user experience. Available with or without an Autosampler, the Discovery SDT is sure to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
