LINSEIS is a leading manufacturer and distributor of recorders and thermal analysis instruments. The Company offers first-class products in the field of thermal analysis and thermal physical property Measurements.
Thermal analysis is a term used for the study of heat transfer through substances. A lot of the basic engineering data for modeling comes from measurements of heat capacity as well as thermal conductivity.
Some of its application areas are:
- Food:Most often food is subjected to variations in temperature during manufacture, preparation, transport, storage, etc.
- Polymers and metals:metals and plastics represent another significant area in which thermal analysis is actively applied. Thermoplastic polymers are commonly used in the production of everyday packaging and household items.
Since its launch almost 60 years ago, LINSEIS’s thermal analysis unit produces a broad range of thermal analytical devices for research and quality control. The unit is at the forefront of manufacturing of multiple tools for use in sectors such as polymers, chemical industry, inorganic materials, building, environmental analytic tools, labtests, etc.
LINSEIS enjoys a remarkable reputation globally. With customers from industries like the building industry, automotive, pharmaceuticals, chemical, electronics amongst others.
The company prides itself as a global leader in production of research and quality control tools including:
• Differential Scanning Calorimeter
The Differential Scanning Calorimeter is a modern Thermal analysis technique for measuring endothermic (heat flows into a sample) and exothermic (heat flows out of the sample) transitions as a function of temperature. Researchers use this apparatus to characterize plastics, pharmaceuticals, biological, organic chemicals as well as inorganic materials.
• Simultaneous Thermal Analysis
Simultaneous thermal analysis measures both, heat flow and weight change of a specimen as a function of temperature/ time under a controlled environment. Measuring of these two material properties at the same time not only increases productivity but also simplifies analysis of the results.
• Thermomechanical Analysis
The thermo-mechanical analysis is a method for gauging sample displacement in terms of growth, shrinkage, and movement as a function of temperature, time and applied energy. Conventionally, Thermal mechanical analysis is used to describe linear expansion, glass transitions, and softening points of samples by using a continuous force to a sample while fluctuating the temperature.
Dilatometry is a method that allows the measurement of change in dimensions of a substance under negligible load as a function of temperature. A researcher subjects the sample to a controlled temperature program in a specified environment and checks for expansion or shrinkage. The company produces a broad range of Single, Dual, Differential, Quattro, Quenching, Laser, and Optical Dilatometers in a temperature range of -180°C to 2800°C.
• Hall Effect Measurement System
This tool allows the characterization of semiconductor devices; it measures movement, resistivity, charge carrier concentration, and Hall coefficient.
• Laser Flash / Xenon Flash Analyzer
When it comes to measuring the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity, the Laser Flash technique is one of the fastest and most dependable methods available. It enables a determination of a minimum of 125°C up to a maximum temperature of 600°C.
• Laser Flash for thin films TF-LFA
Linseis flash technique is the most commonly used method for measurement of thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity of various types of solids, powders, and liquids.
Thermophysical properties play a significant role in the manufacture of items such as optical disks media, thermoelectric materials, light emitting diodes, phase change memories, flat panel displays, etc.
• Seebeck and electrical resistivity Analyser
Thermoelectricity defines the direct transformation of a temperature gradient into electricity and vice versa. Due to the recent global warming caused by carbon dioxide and reduction of fossil fuels, thermoelectric conversion tools are gaining a reputation because of their efficient use of waste heat energies. To meet the pressing requirements for measuring these energies, Linseis has developed characteristic evaluating instruments for these materials and devices. These tools include the LSR-3 Seebeck Coefficient Measurement and electric resistivity measurement unit, XFA Xenonflash and LFA Laserflash apparatus for thermal conductivity determination.
• Transient Hot Bridge & Heat Flow
Linseis has a lot of expertise in manufacturing tools for measurement of thermal properties; the analysis covers a broad range of different thermal levels. Researchers have confirmed the Laser Flash Method as the fastest and most dependable method when it comes to measurement of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. It enables tool allows a determination from a low of -125°C to a high of 600°C.
• Evolved gas Analysis
By pairing a thermal balance and a gas analyzer, Linseis offers a very powerful analytical tool that is used in giving information from the thermal balance or simultaneous thermal analyzer.
• Recorder & Datalogger
Linseis provides a range of devices for recording mV/V, mA/A, Temperature, and Humidity. The company also deals with Data Loggers, Industrial Airflow devices, Manometers, Safety equipment as well as Temperature and Humidity measurement tools. The well-known Linseis Recorder & Datalogger can be found at their online shop linseis.com/en/
