The TGA: Macro and Micro

The TGA: Macro and Micro

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) first started in the early 20th century, and while the technology has advanced, the basic principles remain the same. With TGA, the rate of change of reactions in the chemical and physical properties of materials as functions of temperature or time is what is used to assess the properties of the sample materials. Most TGA these days is done with either micro TGAs (using milligram-size samples) or macro TGAs (using gram-size samples).

Thermogravimetrically Testing Biomass

 Thermogravimetrically Testing Biomass

So many factors go into the quality and characterisation of plants and biomass, but many thermogravimetric analyses take so much time. Drying, ashing, and weighing multiple samples takes effort and care just to control for atmospheric effects, much less to actually get precise results that can then be used to analyse the quality and structure of the plants. LECO's TGA801 is an automated thermogravimetric analyser designed to take the time out of the testing.

NEW ONLINE WORKSHOP SERIES // Building Strong Foundations

 

LECO is taking an in-depth look at a material virtually the entire modern world is built on: Cement.

For all of its benefits, cement is a surprisingly complex mixture of a balance of ingredients such as lime, silica, alumina and more. The quality and strength of this and other building materials is determined from their chemical make-ups. Join LECO’s experts as they explain how chemical and moisture analyses of cement and other building materials can be performed quickly, efficiently, and accurately.
