  • Specific heat

Description of facility

For measuring specific heat and for determination of enthalpy of transformations the DSC method (differential scanning calorimetry) is used. The equipment (DSC 400, Fa. Netzsch Gerätebau) allows measurements up to 1400°C. Thermo balances (Setaram TG-DTA 92 und Setaram Setsys 16/18) are used to analyse weight changes in defined atmospheres (air, oxygen, argon, synthetic gases) at a high resolution (up to 1µg) at temperatures up to 1600°C. Simultaneously DTA measurements (differential thermal analyses) are possible. Dilatometer measurements can be run under vacuum or defined atmosphere to determine the coefficient of thermal expansion.
