High Pressure STA HP 1/2

Only available high pressure STA ( High pressure TGA-DSC)


On point

The LINSEIS High Pressure STA (High Pressure Tg-DSC) stands as a benchmark in performance, offering an unparalleled capability. This system is designed for the simultaneous measurement of mass changes (TG) and caloric reactions (HDSC) under precisely controlled atmospheres and high pressures, reaching up to 50/150 bar, within a broad temperature range from -170°C to 1800°C.

What sets this instrument apart is its unique status as the sole high-pressure TG-DSC system available worldwide. Its exceptional features encompass high precision, remarkable resolution, and long-term drift stability, making it an ideal solution to meet the rigorous demands of high-temperature and high-pressure applications.

The primary applications of High Pressure Thermogravimetry-Differential Scanning Calorimetry include:

  1. Pyrolysis Studies
  2. Coal and Biomass Gasification
  3. Evaluation of Getter Materials for O2, H2, and more
  4. Research on Metal Reduction and Oxidation processes

Applications example: Coal gasification

Here’s an example of a coal sample undergoing gasification in a CO2 atmosphere with the following experimental conditions: 

  • The sample was initially exposed to 20 bar of nitrogen (N2) during the heating phase.
  • Subsequently, the gasification process was carried out under a constant pressure of 10 bar of carbon dioxide (CO2).

Applications example: Coal gasification in CO2 Atmosphere unter 20 bar pressure

This application exemplifies a standard measurement of charcoal gasification within a carbon dioxide atmosphere, conducted at a pressure of 20 bar.

Applications example: Comparison of Calcium Oxalate decomposition under normal Atmosphere and Pressure

A comparison of the decomposition of calcium oxalate under different conditions is depicted. The red curve represents the decomposition under a pressure of 20 bar, while the blue curve represents the decomposition under atmospheric conditions. Notably, there is a marked pressure dependence observed in the first and third decomposition steps. These steps exhibit a notable shift to higher temperatures when conducted under elevated pressure.
