Instructions for sample analysis

  1. Samples should be either in powder or liquid form. The minimum quantity of sample required is about 100 mg per analysis.
  2. The analysis cannot be carried out if the temperature range and the heating rate are not specified.
  3. Explosive, poisonous samples and samples giving rise to toxic /obnoxious gases/ fumes on heating cannot be undertaken for thermal analysis.
  4. The user must ensure that samples will not react with the quartz tube during the analysis.
  5. In order to safeguard the instrument from damage, it is absolutely essential that you must state the decomposition products associated with a heating cycle of your sample. Therefore, please furnish the following information. Sample no., decomposition product in the additional information.
