Multi-sensor Thermal Constants Analyser

The Hot Disk TPS 2500 S Dual is a state of the art quality control instrument. By testing the thermal conductivity of a sample or device, even the smallest structural or compositional deviations are easy to detect. The TPS 2500 S features the ability to perform several simultaneous test, while retaining the accuracy and versatility of the normal TPS 2500 S. Each unit is equipped with two sensor positions, and the Dual units can be modularly linked in parallel, thus allowing the complete system to be tailored to your testing requirements. The ability to test several samples or many positions on one larger device, at once, makes the TPS 2500 S ideal for incorporation in a production line. The TPS 2500 S Dual meets ISO Standard 22007-2.

The TPS technique is used in more than 600 laboratories today, and is highly appreciated for its ability to simultaneously determine thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity from a single measurement. The technique allows for very flexible sample geometries and sample preparation is minimal.

Optional software modules allows the instrument to be used in special applications, such as measurements of thin films, coatings or adhesive layers (Thin Film module), high-conducting sheets or slabs (Slab module), and anisotropic samples or layered structures (Anisotropic module) – important applications in e.g. the electronics, automotive, aerospace, nuclear and chemical industries.

The test & analysis software for the TPS 2500 S Dual incorporates tools for automated measurements. The software also incorporates tools for exporting results to 3rd-party software (MS Excel), for additional processing or statistical analysis.

Sensors: The TPS 1500 operates a selection of Hot Disk sensors suitable for different materials and applications.

Temperature Control: Automatic Temperature series measurements (Isothermal Steps) are easy to perform using either an optional external Furnace or a temperature-controlled Circulating Bath. The Hot Disk Analysis software and TPS 1500 instrument controls the external device using RS-232 protocol.

Everything to get you started: The basic TPS 1500 system includes everything necessary to begin making measurements, including installation and on-site training. The instrumentation includes: Software with standard isotropic module, one Sensor, Stainless Steel verification samples and a Room-Temperature Sample Holder.

Optional Software Modules: In addition to the standard ISOTROPIC and ONE-DIMENSIONAL modules, optional ones for ANISOTROPIC, SPECIFIC HEAT CAPACITY, and LOW-DENSITY, HIGHLY-INSULATING SAMPLES are available.

The advantages of using a TPS instruments involve the following:

The method is non-destructive.

Contact resistance between sensor and sample does not influence measurement results.

Porous and transparent samples are easy to test, without modification.

Surface roughness or surface color does not influence measurement results.

Minimum- or no sample preparation.

Double-sided testing for maximum accuracy.

Optional single-sided QC-testing for maximum ease.

Instant and fully consistent thermal conductivity results.

Three thermal transport properties measured in a single transient.

No calibration or reference sample verification required. (The TPS technique is an absolute technique.)
