DSC 214 Nevio

..by means of the DSC 214 Nevio ‒ the fastest heat-flux DSC instrument on the market.

Information obtained by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC):

  • Melting temperatures and enthalpies
  • Polymorphism
  • Crystallization temperatures and enthalpies
  • Glass transitions
  • Solid-solid interactions (e.g., compatibility)
  • Phase diagrams
  • Eutectic purity
  • Solid-fat content
  • Reaction temperatures and enthalpies
  • Cross-linking reactions (curing)
  • Oxidation-induction time and temperature (OIT (isothermal), OIT (dynamic), OOT)

Functional principle:

A DSC measuring cell consists of a furnace and an integrated sensor with designated positions for the sample and reference pans. The sensor areas are connected to thermocouples or may even be part of the thermocouple. This allows for recording both the temperature difference between the sample and reference side (DSC signal) and the absolute temperature of the sample or reference side.

DIN 51007 and ISO 11357-1 recommend the portrayal of endothermic processes with upward ordinate amplitude. In, for example, ASTM E793 and E794, downward application of the endothermic direction is suggested. This is why the NETZSCH Proteus® software allows for the direction of application for endothermic and exothermic processes to be selected.
