TGA801 Thermogravimetric Analyzer Moisture, Ash, Volatile Content, and Loss-on-Ignition

TGA

Description

The TGA801 is the latest generation of automated macro thermogravimetric analyzers to enter our lineup. The TGA801 maintains the core capabilities and reliability of previous generations of LECO macro TGA instruments, while providing key improvements in performance and robustness. By incorporating state-of-the-art hardware with an on-board touch-screen software platform and a rugged design, the TGA801 provides accurate, high-precision thermogravimetric constituent analysis—moisture, ash, volatile content, and LOI in various organic, inorganic, and synthetic materials. Complying with ASTM standardized methods, the TGA801 is applicable to many industries and applications including coal, cement, catalyst, foods, and feeds.

Macro thermogravimetric analysis replaces the often slow, labor-intensive, traditional manual gravimetric techniques that require multiple sample weighing and transfer steps involving ovens, muffle furnaces, and desiccator equipment. The flexible method settings, automation, and hardware capabilities of the TGA801 deliver an automated analysis process while requiring only the manual measurement of the initial sample mass, saving you time in your lab.

Cornerstone Mobile remote software keeps the user updated from their smartphone, tablet, or PC on the instrument’s analysis batch progress, performance, and status while away from the instrument.

 

Features:

MAXIMIZE PRODUCTIVITY AND IMPROVE WORK FLOW

  • Automated thermogravimetric analysis batch of up to 19 samples
  • Eliminate the handling, transfer, and cooling time required of traditional gravimetric methods
  • Determine multiple constituent analysis such as moisture, volatile matter, and ash from a single sample and analysis batch sequence
  • Optimize analysis time using automatic end point recognition based upon sample mass constancy
