TG 209 F1 Libra®

The vacuum-tight thermo-microbalance for highest demands 

Faster and more comprehensive characterization of materials

Based on over 50 years of experience in thermogravimetry, NETZSCH has developed the thermobalance TG 209 F1 Libra®. This instrument allows for analyses to be carried out even faster, more accurately, and across an extended temperature range.

Functional principle:

Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) is a method of thermal analysis in which the mass of a sample is measured over time as the temperature changes. This measurement provides information about physical phenomena, such as phase transitions, absorption and desorption; as well as chemical phenomena including thermal decomposition, and solid-gas reactions (e.g., oxidation or reduction).

TG 209 F1 Libra® supports:

  • Automated baseline determination through BeFla
  • 20 times faster due to high heating rates
  • More comprehensive and faster characterization by patented c-DTA®
  • Long lifespan of the high-performance ceramics

Advantages of the TG 209 F1 Libra®:

  • Maximum temperature range of up to 1100 °C
  • Maximum heating range of up to 200 K/min
  • ASC of up to 204 sample and reference crucibles (optional)
  • Gas atmospheres: inert, oxidizing, reducing, dynamic, static
  • Coupling options with FTIR, FTIR-MS, GC-MS or MS
  • Proteus® software (including device license)
