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. 

Product name DSCvesta
Technique Differential scanning calorimetry
Benefit Characterize and quantifies the energy of a reaction associated with phase  changes
Technology DSC is a thermal analysis technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature.
