The Advantages of Excedr’s Calorimeter Leasing Program:
- Eliminates the upfront cost of purchasing equipment by spreading its cost over time
- Minimizes equipment downtime with included complete repair coverage and preventive maintenance
- Takes advantage of potentially 100% tax deductible* payments, providing you significant cash-savings
- Expedites the administrative work needed for instrument procurement and logistics
- Conserves working capital, enabling you to reinvest in your core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)
- Accommodates all manufacturer and model preferences
*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.
Calorimetry measures the change in energy of an object or system by observing the heat transfer that occurs with its surroundings.
This heat exchange may occur due to physical changes, chemical reactions, or even sudden phase changes in the object or systems being observed. The energy change attribution can vary.
This type of measurement is able to determine if a chemical reaction resulted in the loss or absorbance of heat, referred to as exothermic reactions or endothermic reactions, respectively.
A calorimeter, which applies calorimetry to measure the amount of heat energy that is either lost or gained during some chemical or physical process, is a ubiquitous lab instrument found across several varying industries.
Calorimeters are used to find the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a system or object by one degree. This is known as finding a system’s heat capacity, and is expressed as joules per kelvin (J/K). When heat capacity is expressed in calories per gram, this is referred to as specific heat.
Calorimeters can also be used to determine entropy and enthalpy. Entropy measures how much energy is spread out in a process over time or how spread out the initial energy of a system becomes at constant temperature. Enthalpy, on the other hand, relates to entropy in that entropy is roughly the heat supplied—or change in enthalpy—divided by temperature.
In its most basic form, a calorimeter is an enclosed, well-insulated chamber, filled with a known reference material that can measure the heat of reaction inside the chamber. Water is often used because most of the important properties of it are already known.
Calorimetry Techniques, Advantages, & Costs
Performing thermal analysis on materials has uses in a wide variety of fields, including chemistry, material science, and thermodynamics. As a method for the measurement of heat, calorimetry can be applied to both solid and liquid fuel testing, as well as explosives testing, the study of heat energy (typically performed in academia), water treatment, and soil characterization, just to name a few.
There are also many types of calorimeters that differ based on what kind of reaction you are looking for or what specific experimental conditions you need.

Operating leases provide three options at the end of the term. The lessee can return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible, which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your instrument and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments, freeing up money in your budget instead of tying it down to a fixed asset.
