Shimadzu Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA-50)

Shimadzu Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA-50)

This is used to measure weight changes of materials placed in a precision microbalance due to chemical decomposition and/or oxidation as a function of temperature or time. The technique is frequently used in quality assurance by the thermal stability characterization of materials used and produced in industry including pharmaceutical and petrochemical. In some specific applications, the instrument can quantify the weight loss due to volatile matter (water/solvent), plasticizer, filler and pyrolysis.
