Leading provider of Thermal Conductivity Testing and Thermal
Conductivity Instruments as well as Thermal Resistivity,
Specific Heat Capacity and Thermal Diffusivity.
Thermtest offers thermal conductivity instrumentation and testing services to cover a broad range of industries and applications.
Thermal Testing Laboratories: The Transient Plane Source (TPS) series of thermal conductivity systems are well suited for thermal testing laboratories due to their superior material type, sample size and temperature flexibility.
Nanotechnology: Nano-Research is the creation of high performance functional materials, devices and systems through control of matter on the nanometer length scale. The TPS series of thermal conductivity systems are particular well suited for the testing of nano-engineered materials, whether your interests are in solids or liquids.
One highlight is the electrically insulated TPS sensors, which are key to accurately measuring the thermal conductivity of liquids, with out the negative influence of nano-particle + non-insulated metal sensor the more traditional methods suffer from.
Building Materials: With the ability to measure homogenious and non-homogenious materials, the TPS thermal conductivity systems can be used to test all building materials from insulation to concrete and everything in between.
Heat Transfer Materials: Uniquely designed to test heat transfer materials of all types, including solids, liquids and pastes. The TPS Thermal Conductivity Systems are also able to test complex heat transfer samples such as thin films and higly conductive sheets. For anisotropic samples, the TPS can measure directional thermal conductivity through the thickness and in the plane.
Geothermal: Thermal Conductivity is an ever increasing property to understanding in relation to the geothermal industry. Widely used for its ability to test samples like soil and rock with temperature, the TPS thermal conductivity instrument continues to play an important part in this growing insustry.
Solids: Offering the best combination of accuracy and testing flexibility, the TPS thermal conductivity systems cover a wide range of thermal conductivity (0.001 to 500 W/mK). Added to this flexibility is the ability to test composites, thin films and anisotropic solids.
Liquids: The TPS thermal conductivity systems can be used to test liquids under conditions of minimised volume, temperature and pressure. The electrically insulated TPS sensor offers several advancements over the typical bare metal sensors, such as protection from particle interference and convection effects.
Powders: Whether your particles are small or large in size, the TPS thermal conductivity system offers several sensor sizes to accomadate the individual particle or bulk sample.
Pastes: Combining the ability to measure semi-solids and high thermal conductivity, make the TPS thermal conductivity system a perfect tool for measuring pastes.
