Thermal analysis in the field of Energy industries

In the era of climate change and the gradual depletion of fossil energy sources, the efficient utilization of the remaining resources for energy and heat generation has taken on paramount importance. Understanding the thermal properties of fuels like coal, oil, and gas is a critical step in achieving this objective.

The knowledge of thermal characteristics becomes a pivotal safety consideration, particularly in fields such as nuclear energy. In this domain, it is imperative to prevent the leakage of radioactivity stemming from nuclear power plants or nuclear propulsion systems. Achieving this necessitates the use of materials capable of withstanding both high levels of radiation and the extreme operating pressures and temperatures inherent to these environments. To determine the suitability of materials for such applications, high-pressure instruments from Linseis are indispensable. These instruments are meticulously engineered to endure the challenging conditions they encounter.

Even more demanding conditions are encountered in the pursuit of harnessing secondary energy from lithium using fusion reactors. Although this technology is still in its early stages, dedicated research efforts have been underway for years. One of the most critical questions in designing such reactors revolves around selecting appropriate wall materials. Reliable thermal analysis methods, such as Dilatometry, Simultaneous Thermal Analysis, and Laserflash analysis, play an instrumental role in addressing this challenge.

Linseis stands ready to support scientists and developers in the nuclear and energy industries with a comprehensive range of high-quality thermal analysis instrumentation. These instruments are designed to meet the stringent requirements for accuracy, safety, and functionality demanded by these vital sectors.
