Heavy-duty Thermal Constants Analyser
The affordable Hot Disk TPS 1500 is the ideal instrument for testing and measuring thermal conductivity of building materials, insulation materials or any other type of large bulk samples. The TPS 1500 shares the sterling quality, robustness and operative simplicity of the benchmark TPS 2500 S and also meets ISO Standard 22007-2.
The well-established TPS technique – today used in more than 600 laboratories – is highly appreciated for its ability to simultaneously and quickly determine thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity from a single measurement, with minimum sample preparation. Utilizing the unique Hot Disk sensors, the TPS 1500 system serves as a robust tool for testing the thermal properties of solids, powders, pastes and foams. If larger samples are available, also highly conducting samples, such as metals, semi-conductors and high-conductivity oxides, can be tested.
The TPS 1500 is designed as a reliable workhorse 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 analysed. The Hot Disk Analysis software for the TPS 1500 system incorporates tools for automated measurements as well as automatic temperature control of external devices. In addition to the standard Isotropic and One-dimensional software modules the system can be extended with software to allow testing of anisotropic samples (Anisotropic module) and extremely light and low-conducting materials (Low-density/Highly-insulating module). Also available is a dedicated module for analysing specific heat capacity of solid samples, such as complex composites (Cp module).
The Hot Disk Thermal Analyser software for the TPS 1500 system incorporates tools for automated measurements as well as automatic temperature control of external devices. It also incorporates tools for exporting results to 3rd-party software (MS Excel), for additional processing or statistical analysis. For precise and automatic temperature readings an optional PT-100 temperature sensor is available.
