The Linseis TGA PT1600 for thermogravimetric applications is a toploading Thermobalance, which offers a highly userfriendly design. Even at a sample weight of up to 5/25g the tara is done electronically. The specially designed furnaces allow fast heating and cooling rates as well as a highly precise temperature control. The system can be optionally equipped with a coupling device for EGA (Evolved Gas Analysis). The instrument is highly suitable for thermal composition, thermal stability and oxidation studies.
