Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) @ Institute of Technology Tallaght Dublin (ITTD)

Institution Institute of Technology Tallaght Dublin (ITTD)
County Dublin
Technique Category Thermal Analysis
Technique Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA)

Basic Capabilities

Heating of a sample in an inert or oxidising atmosphere and measuring the weight. The weight change over specific temperature ranges provides indications of the composition of the sample and thermal stability. Applications include: Assessment of moisture and volatiles / Assessment of composition / Thermal stability / Oxidative stability / Decomposition kinetics

Equipment

Equipment Make TA Instruments TGA - Q50
Equipment Model

Advantages/Limitations

Advantage of Technique/Equipment Provide quantitative measurment of mass change in materials.Records change in mass from dehydration, decomposition and oxidation of a sample with time and temperature
Limitations of Technique/Equipment Destruction of the sample, careful adherance to parameters for comparison to user created databases.
