We have recently received funding of £1.95m through InnovateUK to develop the facilities available within our labs, as part of the Midlands Energy Research Accelerator (ERA). The funding has been used to enhance and extend our range of equipment and laboratory space.
The STA functions as both a calorimeter and thermogravimetric analyser, measuring heat flow and weight change simultaneously
The TMA easily and rapidly measures sample displacement to nanometre precision (growth, shrinkage, movement, etc.) as a function of temperature, time, and applied force
The Calvet Calorimeter determines of a wide range of properties including enthalpy, melting energy, specific heat, glass point, crystallinity, reaction enthalpy and thermal stability
Rapid measurement of the thermal diffusivity and thermal conductivity of various kinds of solids, powders and liquids
Determines the thermal conductivity of a wide range of low-to-medium thermal conductivity materials by using guarded heat flow method
