TA Instruments’ Q500 is a high performance research grade thermogravimetric analyzer equipped with a responsive low-mass furnace, sensitive thermobalance, and efficient horizontal purge gas system. Its robust easy-to-use software makes the Q500 perfect for the multi-user laboratory where a wide variety of TGA applications are conducted and where future expansion of analytical work is anticipated. (TA Instruments Webpage: Q500 Thermogravimetric Analyzer) Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) measures weight changes in a material as a function of temperature or time under a controlled atmosphere. Its principal uses include measurement of a material's thermal stability and composition. Thermogravimetric Analysis instruments are routinely used in all phases of research, quality control, and production operations. A variety of analytical techniques including derivative thermogravimetric analysis and isothermal analysis can be employed with advanced software options. Experiments § Heat Ramped § Isothermal § Thermal Cycling Features § Temperature Range: 25–1000°C § Atmosphere: Air, Argon, Helium, Nitrogen or Oxygen § Heating Ramp Rate: 0.5-50°C/min § Balance Sensitivity: +/- 1.0µg
