The Hot Disk TPS 2500 S constitutes a new and improved industry benchmark Thermal Constants Analyzer test system. This general-purpose R&D instrument is designed for analyzing thermal transport properties covering an extensive range of materials of various types of geometry and dimensions. The TPS 2500 S meets ISO Standard (ISO/DIS 22007-2.2).
The patented TPS technique – today used in more than 300 laboratories – is highly appreciated for its ability to simultaneously determine thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity from a single measurement, with limited emphasis on sample preparation. The operative simplicity of the TPS 2500 S and the performance achieved when using optimally designed Hot Disk sensors, makes this system a robust and ideal tool for tests of solids, liquids, powders, pastes and foams. The trademark high accuracy and precision makes the instrument suitable for QC testing.
Optional software modules allows the instrument to be used in special applications, such as measurements of thin films, coatings or adhesive layers (Thin Films module), high-conducting sheets or slabs (Slabs module), and anisotropic samples or layered structures (Anisotropic module) – important applications in the electronics, automotive, aerospace, nuclear and chemical industries.
The test & analysis software for the TPS 2500 S system incorporates tools for automated measurements as well as automatic temperature control of external devices. The software also incorporates tools for exporting results to 3rd-party software (MS Excel), for additional processing or statistical analysis.
