Eltra Thermogravimetric Analyzer(TGA)


Thermogravimetry is a standard method to analyze organic, inorganic and synthetic materials. Thermogravimetric analysis in general means the measurement of the weight loss during a user-defined temperature or heating process.

ELTRA’s TGA Thermostep is a thermogravimetric analyzer(TGA) which determines various parameters such as moisture, volatiles and ash at user-defined temperatures and atmospheres in a single analysis. The thermogravimetrics analyzer TGA Thermostep simultaneously analyzes up to 19 samples with sample weights up to 5 g and can be operated at temperatures up to 1000 °C.

A special feature of the TGA Thermostep is the management of crucible covers. The thermogravimetric analyzer can place and remove the covers of the crucibles during analysis. This feature allows for example the precise determination of volatile content in coal and coke.

  • precise, accurate and reliable determination of moisture, volatile, ash content
  • wide range of materials can be analyzed
  • programmable furnace temperature can be set up to 1000 °C in steps of 1 °C
  • powerful software (multilingual, customized display, export of results)
  • two thermocouples for precise temperature control
  • balance with 0,0001 g resolution
  • low maintenance
  • robust design allows usage in production control and laboratory
