Thermogravimetric analyzer, as a kind of precision instrument specially used to study the thermal properties of materials, has been widely used in materials science, environmental science and other fields in recent years. By measuring the mass change of the sample during heating, it provides researchers with an important tool to gain insight into the thermal stability and thermal decomposition behavior of materials.


The thermogravimetric analyzer is mainly composed of heating furnace, weighing system, control system and data processing system. During the experiment, the sample is placed in a heating furnace and heated by a programmed temperature control, while the mass change of the sample is monitored in real time by a weighing system. The control system controls the temperature of the heating furnace according to the preset program to ensure the accuracy of the experimental conditions. Finally, the data processing system processes and analyzes the mass change data and generates thermogravimetric curves to provide intuitive data support for researchers.


Thermogravimetric analyzer has a wide range of applications, covering polymer materials, inorganic materials, plastics, rubber, food and other fields. In the research of polymer materials, the thermogravimetric analyzer can be used to evaluate the thermal stability and thermal degradation characteristics of materials, which provides an important basis for the selection and application of materials. In the field of environmental science, it can be used to analyze the thermal decomposition process of organic matter, polymer or biomass, assess its impact on the environment and treatment methods.


In addition, the thermogravimetric analyzer has the advantages of simple operation, short experiment period and low cost. Combined with other technical means, such as infrared spectrometers, mass spectrometers, etc., more comprehensive material information can be obtained, providing researchers with deeper insights.


In short, as an important material science research instrument, thermogravimetric analyzer provides researchers with a powerful tool to explore the thermal properties of materials. In the future of scientific research, it will continue to play an important role in promoting progress and development in various fields.
