A Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA) combined with an Infrared Spectrometer (TG-IR) is the most common type of Evolved Gas Analysis (EGA) system.
When you heat a sample on the TGA, the sample will release volatile materials or generate combustion components as it burns. These gases are then transferred to your IR cell, where the components can be identified. When considering adding a TG-IR or any other hyphenated system to your laboratory, it’s important that you not only understand how each of the instruments work, but also how the connection affects them.
At PerkinElmer, we’ve invested in a wide range of technologies to supply you with all the components you need for hyphenation and the expertise and knowledge to help you use it effectively – instrumentation, service, support, expertise and knowledge.
The more you know, the more your laboratory can do.
