Overview

It's all about sample atmosphere control

The TGA 8000 gives you the confidence that comes with total control of your sample atmosphere, both temperature and gas. Our furnace's temperature control system creates a wide effective temperature range – from subambient to 1,200 °C. The system delivers heating rates from 0.1 °C to 500 °C/minute to address the widest range of applications, and its low mass and forced-air cooling allow it to cool quickly for fast sample turnaround. For sample gas environment, the system provides two integral mass-flow controllers for balance and sample purge. Built-in gas switching from Pyris™ software makes switching easy, while optional gas mixing allows the blending of up to three reaction gases, with delivery direct to the sample area.

Perfect for unattended operation

In today’s budget-constrained lab environments, your entire staff is being asked to perform complex characterizations – so the need for simple, easy-to-use instrumentation has never been greater. Our newly designed 48-position autosampler is simply the best in the business – the perfect system for single sample autoloading or for overnight multiple sample analysis. This patent-pending autosampler works seamlessly with our Accupik accessory used for testing aqueous or volatile samples, as well as with our comprehensive array of hyphenated accessories.

Welcome to the hyphenation evolution

Unlike all other systems, the TGA 8000 is designed from the ground up for hyphenation, enabling you to increase your power of analysis by coupling techniques such as FT-IR, MS, GC/MS, and more. We’re the only provider that can supply everything you need to understand and implement a complete hyphenation solution for your lab, including instruments, service, and support. And while other vendors depend on third parties to complete your hyphenation solution, we offer a whole range of hyphenated systems that target your need precisely.

Application Note

Soot Content Determination of In-Service Lubricants of Diesel Engine as Per ASTM D5967 Annex A4

Internal combustion in an engine produces soot as a result of incomplete fuel combustion. The soot deposits deplete the quantity of dispersant additives which may cause an increase in viscosity which in turn increases engine wear. These soot particles adversely affect the engine performance and can lead to damage of the engine parts. This application note demonstrates the quantification of soot content as well as the repeatability of the measurement.

The TGA Noack Test for the Assessment of Engine Oil Volatility

Researchers in the automotive and petrochemical industries have studied the effects of oil volatility on engine emissions and oil consumption over the past decade. The standard test for assessing oil volatility has been the Noack and gas chromatographic techniques. The Noack test conditions are recognized as being more representative of those experienced by oils in engines during operation. This application note describes how PerkinElmer TGA 8000, TGA 4000 or STA 6000 instruments provide an excellent means of characterizing oil volatilities using the TGA Noack test, which has been developed to improve reproducibility and has taken into account better test conditions that closely meet ASTM D6375-09 specifications.
