NETZSCH EPS – A New and Affordable Standard Material for Testing Thermal Conductivity with HFM Instruments

The heat flow meter (HFM) method is mainly used to test thermal conductivity and thermal resistance of insulation samples. It is not an absolute method, therefore, the heat flow meter output needs to be calibrated with a standard material. NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH has recently qualified its own factory standard for calibration and validation of heat flow … Read moreNETZSCH EPS – A New and Affordable Standard Material for Testing Thermal Conductivity with HFM Instruments

Lambda-Wert von Dämmstoffen: Der Hersteller trägt die Verantwortung für die qualifizierte technische Dokumentation.

Smart Thermal Analysis (Part I): Automatic Evaluation of DSC, TGA and STA Measurements

AutoEvaluation by NETZSCH is a very helpful tool for evaluation of thermoanalytical measurements. The entire measurement is evaluated by AutoEvaluation automatically and autonomously (not via pre-defined macro!) – with only one mouse click – and just within a second. AutoEvaluation is available for DSC, TGA and now also for STA measurements. Furthermore, the adaptability of AutoEvaluation is adressed.
