In material sciences, heat is used in conjunction with other measurement techniques to determine the different properties of samples. The group of techniques that performs these measurements are referred to as thermal analyzers.
Thermal analysis can also be described as the measurement of heat transfer through structured mediums. Each subcategory of an analyzer measures different properties of a sample as its temperature is either heated or cooled. The temperature of the environment that the sample is within is controlled; how that temperature is controlled varies based on the device’s make and model.
A simple control method is increasing or decreasing the temperature at a constant rate, referred to as linear heating/cooling. The analysis is done by recording multiple measurements of the same material at different temperatures, also known as a stepwise isothermal measurement.
Having the rate of change in temperature oscillate or having the heating or cooling rate change in response to alteration in the sample would be two examples of other, more complicated, control techniques. These can also be referred to as modulated temperature thermal analysis and sample controlled thermal analysis, respectively.
Thermal analyzers are used in material science, pharmaceutical processes, polymer analysis, medical research, and quality assurance. Their ability to ascertain the physical qualities of a material in relation to changes in temperature makes them indispensable to these fields.
The analysis can also look at a dielectric material’s electrical discharge, a stressed sample’s mechanical relaxation, or any light or sound emissions, all in relation to changes in temperature.
Additionally, many of the thermal analysis methods covered below can be coupled with other analytical techniques such as gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, or microscopy in order to provide more accurate results.
Thermal Analyzer Methods & Benefits
Various analytical instruments and methods are used to monitor such thermal endothermic and exothermic processes as melting, boiling, sublimation, phase transition, crystallization, oxidation, desolvation, and more.
Furthermore, many TA instruments now offer automation features which help streamline workflows and allow for researchers to focus on other priorities while analyses are performed.
Dielectric Thermal (DETA)
Differential Thermal (DTA)
Dynamic Mechanical (DMA/DMTA)
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)

We Offer Thermogravimetric System Leases to Fit Every Need
If your lab performs thermal analysis—or is considering it—leasing a thermal analyzer (or even a calorimeter, for that matter) can save you both time and money. We offer comprehensive leasing options as well as sale leasebacks. Call us at +1 888-927-3802 or fill out our contact form online to learn more about Excedr’s lease program and receive an estimate.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to 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 device 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. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
