“High performance materials require high performance measurements. Our
new products reflect our unwavering commitment to innovate, and develop
powerful new tools for materials scientists,” said
New Discovery TMA 450
The Discovery Thermomechanical Analyzer TMA 450 precisely measures dimensional changes of materials from -150 to 1000°C with unparalleled sensitivity and reproducibility. Outfitted with a wide range of fixtures, the TMA 450 handles virtually all sample configurations for testing in expansion, compression, flexure and tension modes. Operation is simplified with ease-of-use features such as the new app-style touch screen interface with One-Touch-Away™ functionality and powerful TRIOS™ software.
“With the ever-increasing demands for higher performing materials to
meet the needs of challenging applications, understanding how a material
reacts to its environment is more important than ever,” said
New Rheo-Raman Capability for the Discovery Hybrid Rheometer
The new Rheo-Raman™ Accessory for the Discovery Hybrid Rheometer (DHR) product line combines a Raman spectrometer with the DHR to enable simultaneous collection of rheology and Raman spectroscopy data. This combination allows for direct correlation between flow characteristics and the unique spectroscopic fingerprints of each material including information about its chemical and morphological structure.
“Rheology is used to characterize material flow properties such as
viscosity and viscoelastic parameters that are important predictors of
processing behavior, product performance, and consumer perception. Raman
spectroscopy is a light-based molecular spectroscopy technique that
reveals chemical bonds and molecular structure,” said
The DHR Rheo-Raman Accessory integrates with an iXRTM Raman
New High Sensitivity Pressure Cell for the ARES-G2 Rheometer
The new High Sensitivity Pressure Cell for their ARES-G2 Rheometer enables scientists to perform sensitive viscoelastic measurements under controlled atmospheric pressure and temperature and for the first time, gain detailed understanding of complex fluid behavior in complex environments.
“Many materials are processed or used at temperatures that are near or above their atmospheric boiling point; applying elevated atmospheric pressure is an effective way to suppress this boiling,” continued Mr. Ulbrich. “While pressurized devices for rheometers are relatively common, existing devices employ mechanical bearings that impede measurements of very low viscosity fluids. This is especially true for accurate determination of viscoelastic properties that describe a material’s elasticity, ability to support dispersed phases, and many other traits that are important to industrial suitability and consumer perception. Such conditions are especially important in the fields of oil recovery and food processing.”
BioAccord System Debut at Pittcon
Also making its Pittcon debut is the recently introduced BioAccord™ System, a purposefully designed liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry solution that will expand access to high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry capabilities to more scientists.
"Following a successful launch of the new BioAccord System, we are
excited by the reactions of our customers," said
Customers are invited to visit both the TA Instrument booth #1529 and the Waters booth #1429 for a deeper understanding of our full line of thermal analysis, rheology, chromatography, mass spectrometry, chemistry consumables and informatics solutions.
