The TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer represents the third generation of the patented technology and expands the capabilities of this rapid, non-destructive thermal conductivity and effusivity testing instrument to a whole new level. Designed to provide simple, highly accurate thermal characterization for lab, quality control and production environments, the TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer requires no calibration or sample preparation. The system has broad testing capabilities (0.0 to 220 W/mK) in a wide range of temperatures (–50˚ to 200˚C).
The TCi is based on the modified transient plane source technique. It uses a one-sided, interfacial, heat reflectance sensor that applies a momentary, constant heat source to the sample.
Both thermal conductivity and effusivity are measured directly and rapidly, providing a detailed overview of the thermal characteristics of the sample material.
Fast, Accurate Testing 0 to 500 W/mK in seconds
Wide Temperature Range -50o to 200oC
Easy-to-Use No need Cp ,density value and no calibration required
No Sample Preparation Unlimited sample sizes
Non-Destructive Leaves sample intact
Versatile Tests solids, liquids, powders and pastes and have the flexibility to operate in various environmental enclosures - including thermal chambers and glove boxes.
Highly Flexible Designed for lab, QC, and at-line testing
The TCi has a wide range of applications in characterizing metal hydrides, explosives/energetics, nanomaterials (SWCNTs / MWCNTs), polymers, nuclear materials, thermal interface materials (electronics), heat transfer fluids, ceramics, insulation, construction materials, advanced fabrics, and various other materials.
