Model: Shimadzu DTG 60

The DTG-60 series from Shimadzu uses a parallel guide differential top pan balance mechanism that simultaneously measures temperature changes and mass changes between an inert reference and sample. Versions include high-temperature models, H models, and auto sampler models (A models) for a higher level of efficiency. DTG-60 model with a temperature range from ambient to 1,100°C.

DTG-60 machine operates on the basis of these analyzing method below:

  • Thermogravimetry analysis (TG): based on continuous recording changes in sample volume under the change of temperature. Often used in quantitative analysis of physical or chemical changes with changes of volume. Example: Measuring the volume changes due to chemical changes such as dehydration, decomposition, redox,... and the physical changes such as sublimation, evaporation, absorption, absorption past.
  • Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA): used to detect the difference in temperature of the sample and the standard to determine the energy transformation taking place within the sample that is having the physical or chemical changes when it is heated or cooled.

The machine is designed in X-shaped shaft to keep the balance for recording the results sharply and precisely when the volume changes. Two DTA detectors are arranged in balance and very sensitive to any changes in the DTA. One can be designed up to 24 samples for auto analysis in 24 hours.
