The sample robot, capable of handling up to 96 samples, substantially enhances productivity. This automation allows the instrument to operate autonomously, even during extended periods like overnight or weekends. Combined with the user-friendly and intelligent software, it effectively reduces labor costs and saves valuable time.

Low temperature DSC

Cooling can be achieved using a range of cooling methods, including intracooler, liquid nitrogen cooling, or a Peltier cooling system. These versatile cooling options extend the available temperature range at ambient conditions, allowing for cooling down to as low as -180°C.


Application example: Mea­sure­ment of PET granulate

The analysis of polymers is a fundamental application of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Detecting key transitions such as glass transitions, melting points, and crystallization points can often be challenging. The new Linseis Chip-DSC stands out with its remarkable resolution and sensitivity, rendering it an ideal instrument for precisely this type of analysis.

As an illustrative example, consider a PET granulate. It was subjected to a controlled process: first heated, then rapidly quench-cooled to preserve the amorphous state. Subsequently, the sample was measured using the Chip-DSC, employing a linear heating rate of 50°C/min. The resulting curve reveals significant events in the polymer’s behavior, including a prominent glass transition at 77°C, followed by re-crystallization of the amorphous regions at 170°C, and culminating in a distinct melting peak at 295°C.
