High-temperature DSC
  • High sensitivity, high performance and low noise, realized by a compact furnace
  • Safety is emphasized on the entire system
  • Measuring temperature range: Ambient to 1500°C

High-temperature 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.

DSC8271 is a high-temperature type DSC with a maximum temperature of 1,500°C. In cases where high-temperature measurement is necessary—such as in ceramics and glass materials; as well as in measurements where multiphase phenomena can be obtained which cannot be measured by a standard DSC—the high temperature type DSC is more versatile and applied to a wide range of fields.

Product name DSC8271
Technique High-temperature differential scanning calorimetry
Benefit Characterizes 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.
Core attributes Using this technique, it is possible to observe fusion and crystallization events as well as glass transition temperatures. It can be also used to study oxidation, as well as other chemical reactions.
