High Sensitivity and Excellent Stability Over a Wide Dynamic Mass Range
Increased Efficiency Through Combined Differential Thermal Analysis and Thermogravimetry
The DTG-60 series from Shimadzu uses a parallel guide differential top pan balance mechanism that simultaneously measures temperature changes and mass changes between an inert reference and sample. Versions include high-temperature models, H models, and autosampler models (A models) for a higher level of efficiency.
Included in the DTG-60 series:
- DTG-60 model with a temperature range from ambient to 1,100°C
- DTG-60H model with high-temperature measurement up to 1,500°C
- DTG-60A model with a maximum temperature of 1,100°C and a 24 sample autosampler
- DTG-60AH model with a temperature range from ambient to 1,500°C and an autosampler for up to 24 samples
Excellent Baseline Stability and High Sensitivity
The differential balance in the DTG-60 series is of the Roberval style, where the sample and reference are located above the balance at the top of two separate detectors. This design prevents changes in sensitivity from thermal expansion, enables high-precision thermogravimetric measurements, and minimizes baseline drifts caused by buoyancy or convection during the heating process.
Wide Measurable Mass and Differential Thermal Ranges
The advanced balance, high-quality detectors, and excellent furnace temperature distribution combine to provide a measureable mass change of ±500 mg, a mass readability of 0.1 µg, a maximum sample quantity of 1 g, and a measurable differential thermal range of ±1,000 µV.
Automated Measurement up to 24 Samples
The compact, built-in autosampler of the DTG-60A and DTG-60AH models can hold up to 24 samples for continuous data acquisition. After setup of a master file, automatic analysis and printing is performed according to the preset conditions in the template.
Integrated Cooling and Controlled Atmospheres
The built-in cooling fan and low-mass furnace combine to create quick cooling between measurements. Reactive gases are supplied directly to the sample area and an inert gas purges the balance. By incorporating a FC-60A atmosphere control unit, the software can be used to switch reactive gases during a temperature program.
Controlled by TA-60WS Thermal Analysis Workstation
The TA-60WS thermal analysis workstation connects the DTG-60 series and the computer. Intuitive data acquisition software controls the DTG-60 series and optional accessories, such as the FC-60A atmosphere control unit. In addition, the TA-60WS and data acquisition software can be used to simultaneously control up to four Shimadzu thermal analysis instruments of any type.
