  • 3D-Inside technology: DSC, High Pressure DSC, Robot DSC, TG – DSC
  • Coupling to gas analyser

Product description

Incomparable precision: the unique 3D sensor totally surrounds your sample and reference crucibles so that the entire energy of any transformation is monitored thereby giving you an unequalled accuracy of measurement.

Ease of operation: dedicated market leading CALISTO software that is not only intuitive but powerful enough to perform every typical experiments and data treatment.
Parameter Independent Calibration: because of the 3D transducer the calibration of SENSYS evo is independent of:

  • mass and form (powder, fibre, liquid, etc.) of the sample,
  • contact between the sample and the transducer,
  • crucible type,
  • sweeping gas (inert, oxidizing, reducing, wet, pressure) and flow rate.

DSC measurement under High Pressure: two models of sealed “High Pressure”. Crucibles are available in which only the sample and not the sensor is pressurized, thus allowing for the calibration, baseline and sensitivity to remain unchanged.

Large sample volumes: the working volumes of the crucibles (up to 250 μl) are highly suited to the study of heterogeneous samples, or low-energy phase transitions. They are intended for analyses where the pressure generated by the sample remains low. Crucibles are available in alumina, aluminium, rhodiated platinum.

Robotic System: from routine QC to the determination of a complex formulation within R&D, a robotic autosampler is the ideal solution when high sample throughput is essential.

  • The SENSYS evo DSC Robot offers the possibility of performing unattended analysis of up to 48 samples.
  • The SENSYS evo DSC robot is the only automated DSC capable of working with high pressure Incoloy crucibles.

Vertical SENSYS DSC evo: the vertical configuration of SENSYS evo DSC is particularly suitable for studying the adsorption of gas on catalysts. Using a specific silica reactor inserted into the calorimetric block, measurements on heats of adsorption are obtained with a very high level of precision.

SENSYS TG-DSC evo: the unique 3D-Sensor can be combined with a symmetrical balance beam. The performances of the SENSYS evo TG-DSC result from the absolute symmetry of this unique system in which the TG and DSC transducers, which are mechanically independent, retain their specific characteristics.

1.Reactor de sílica para adsorción de gases

La investigación de adsorción de gas requiere un buen contacto entre el gas y el sólido. Setaram ha diseñado un reactor de sílica  para el Sensys en el cual el reactivo el gas fluye a través de la muestra situada sobre vidrio sinterizado. Este diseño exclusivo de celda  es especialmente interesante para las reacciones gas-sólido y también para el investigación de reacciones que ocurren en un ambiente corrosivo . Los gases liberados se analizan fácilmente en la salida del tubo de sílica por medio de un Cromatógrafo de gases o un Espectrómetro de masas


  • Adsorción de gases en catalizadores. Se utilizan dos modos: la adsorción continua de gas hasta que el catalizador esté saturado o la adsorción de gas mediante pulsos. En este último modo, se inyecta un pulso de gas reactivo en un gas portador. El gas no adsorbido se analiza a la salida del tubo. Por lo tanto, el calor de adsorción se puede asociar con precisión a la cantidad real de gas adsorbido.
  • Reacción gas-sólido en medio corrosivo. El tubo de sílica puede usarse para investigar tal reacción sin dañar el DSC.
