SHIMADZU SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS: Scanning Calorimeters

April 30, 2013

The DSC-60Plus series differential scanning calorimeters for materials characterization are now available. The instruments reportedly offer the high-sensitivity analysis and easy operation required for the development of high-functioning new materials in the food, polymer, and pharmaceutical industries.

The instruments can provide high sensitivity and high resolution during analysis. A new detector and furnace construction can achieve a stable baseline across the entire measured temperature range (-140 to 600°C), as well as temperature sensitivity. The eco-friendly furnace reportedly achieves more than 20% lower energy consumption when heating from room temperature.

The DSC-60A Plus model features a built-in compact auto-sampler, which can permit automated measurement, analysis and report printout for up to 24 loaded samples. It reportedly improves the efficiency of screening during product development, as well as the efficiency of quality control activities.
