The Hot Disk TPS 1500 constitutes a new Thermal Constants Analyzer test system, sharing the sterling quality, robustness and operative simplicity of the benchmark TPS 2500 S. The flexible TPS 1500 instrument is designed for analyzing thermal transport properties covering a wide range of materials of various dimensions. The TPS 1500 meets ISO Standard (ISO/DIS 22007-2.2).
The patented TPS technique – today used in more than 200 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. When utilizing optimally designed Hot Disk sensors, the TPS 1500 system serves as a robust tool for tests of solids, powders, pastes and foams. If larger samples are available, also high-conducting metals or ceramic materials can be tested.
The TPS 1500 is designed as an instrument for materials R&D within heavy-duty industries. The construction industry, for example, will see concrete and cement mixtures, woods, fibrous structures, and insulating materials readily and efficiently analyzed. The excellent accuracy and precision also makes the instrument suitable for QC testing.
The test & analysis software for the TPS 1500 system incorporates tools for automated measurements as well as automatic temperature control of external devices. Optional software modules allow the instrument to test anisotropic samples (Anisotropic module) and tests of Cp of smaller samples (Cp module). The software also incorporates tools for exporting results to 3rd-party software (MS Excel), for additional processing or statistical analysis.
