Thermal analysis of red palm oil by STA

AppNote TA1019: Thermal analysis of red palm oil by STA

In recent years, simultaneous thermal analysis (STA) equipped with sample observation capability has increasingly becoming popular in the field of material characterization and evaluation using thermal analysis. Using this attachment, simultaneous measurements of TG, DTA/DSC as well as capturing the sample’s actual changes in color, shape and volume can be observed visually thru live captured images providing a more detailed information.

TG-DTA is a hyphenated technology generally referred to as simultaneous thermal analysis (STA).



DSC with industry-first self-diagnostic feature and industry's highest temperature range

DSC is a thermal analysis technique that quantifies the amount of energy in a reaction.

Quantifies the energy changes in reactions such as melting, transition, crystallization and glass transition temperature.

DSC8271 is a high-temperature type DSC with a maximum temperature of 1,500°C.

TMA is the measurement of a change in dimension or mechanical property of the sample while it is subjected to a controlled temperature program.


The compact humidity generator (HUM-1) is connected to the TG-DTA for measurements under constant relative humidity water vapor atmosphere.


TMA/HUM measures change in dimension or mechanical property of a sample while subjected to a temperature regime under water vapor atmosphere with a constant relative humidity.

In TG-FTIR, gases evolved by volatilization or thermal decomposition are qualitatively analyzed, which allows you to track changes in the generated amount along with the temperature change.
