EGA - Couplings / Gas Analysis
With the coupling of a thermal balance and a gas analyzer like a FTIR spectrometer (Fourier Transform Infrared) or a Quadrupole-Mass-Spectrometer a very powerful analytical instrumentation is used which gives information from the thermal balance (TGA) or simultaneous thermal analyzer (STA) as well as from the spectrometer simultaneously.
The optional Pulse-Analysis injects an exactly predetermined amount of gas into the Thermobalance (TGA) or Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer (STA). This enhances the measurement possibilities significantly.
EGA - Optical In-Situ Evolved Gas Analysis
Advantages of the optical In-Situ window: No Cooling / Modification of the measuring gas (for example no out-condensation, no transition reaction, no equilibrium shift) many materials with high condensation temperature for example alkali...
