  • Application Area:Thermal Analysis

"This TGA from TA is a user friendly product. It is easy to operate and maintain. The software is also easy to use. You can set up a sequence, tare the pans and have the samples run overnight. Depending on the type of sample and sample size, you can select different type of pans. The method is easy to set up as well. In terms of calibration, the instrument can be easily calibrated with several types of standards. In the time frame we have had the instrument; we have not had any major problems. It uses a microbalance and is very susceptible to nearby vibration and this could fluctuate the weight. Overall, I highly recommend this product for the ease of use and durability."

The Q500 is the world’s #1 selling, research-grade thermogravimetric analyzer. Its field-proven performance arises from a responsive low-mass furnace, ultra-sensitive thermobalance, and efficient horizontal purge gas system (with mass flow control). Its convenience, expandability and powerful, results-oriented software make the Q500 ideal for the multi-user laboratory where a wide variety of TGA applications are conducted, and where future expansion of analytical work is anticipated.
