Thermal Analysis Of Metals

Heat flow measurements from -180°C to 1750°C

The suitability of metals for various applications is contingent on their ability to meet specific conditions. The longevity and service life of metals hinge on their inherent properties, encompassing attributes like hardness, strength, thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, as well as their resistance to oxidation and corrosion.

In many cases, the utility of pure metals is limited, and they are alloyed with other non-metals or semi-metals to significantly enhance their material properties. These hybrid metals, commonly referred to as alloys, exhibit improved characteristics, thereby broadening the spectrum of their applications.

Physical metrology techniques, such as differential thermal analysis (DTA PT 1600), heating microscopy (L74 optical dilatometer), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC PT 1600), and thermogravimetry (STA PT 1600), play a pivotal role in examining the metallurgical behavior of metals and alloys. These techniques facilitate the exploration of critical aspects such as:

  1. Thermal Conductivity of Metals and Alloys
  2. The Impact of Temperature on Metals and Alloys
  3. Variations in Specific Heat with Temperature
  4. Onset of Surface Oxidation in Metals
  5. Phase Equilibrium in Metal Alloys
