THW - Transient Hot Wire

The Transient Hot Wire (THW) Liquid Thermal Conductivity System is an advanced PC controlled instrument for testing the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of liquids and pastes. The THW uses an in-stationary approach and rapid test times of 800 ms to limit the effects of convection. This allows testing of a wide range of viscosities (0.1 to 10000 mPas). Combined with ability to pressurize (0 to 35 bars) and temperature (up to 400°C), the THW is a very powerful thermal property measurement instrument.

HFM - Heat Flow Meter

The Heat Flow Meter Apparatus is a measuring instrument for determining steady-state heat transfer properties, thermal conductivity and thermal resistance of flat slab specimens in accordance to EN 12667, ISO 8301 and ASTM C518 standards. It is designed for use in industrial test laboratories for quality control of thermal insulation materials of low and intermediate thermal conductivity, such as polystyrene, cork, wood wool, etc.

DIL - Dilatometer

Thermtest dilatometers are designed to measure the thermal expansion of solids, such as ceramics, glasses, metals, carbon composites and cements as a function of temperature. The dilatometer records reversible and irreversible changes in length (expansion and shrinkage) during heating and cooling. Samples are measured for determining firing ranges and firing schedules, measuring thermal expansion ranges for glaze fits, and measuring thermal expansion ranges for R&D, QC or product certification. Our standard dilatometers are used for ASTM E-228 procedures to measure the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) as well as softening point, glass transition temperature, curie point, crystalline transformation, phase transition, shrinkage, warping, bloating, sintering rate, isothermal creep and stress relaxation.
