TPS 3500

When samples are small and high-conducting, the Hot Disk TPS 3500 is the ideal instrument for testing their thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat. The capabilities of TPS 3500 go well beyond that of any other Hot Disk instrument to date, while retaining the documented precision of all TPS thermal conductivity meters. It meets ISO 22007-2.

Product Description

Sensors: The TPS 3500 operates a wide variety of Hot Disk sensors. With sensor radius from 0.5 mm up to 30 mm the instrument is suitable for all kinds of materials and applications. Multiple sensors can be connected using an automatic sensor switcher. With sensor radius from 0.5 mm up to 30 mm the instrument is suitable for all kinds of materials and applications.

Temperature Control: Automatic Temperature series measurements (Isothermal Steps) are easy to perform using either an optional external Furnace or a temperature-controlled Circulating Bath. These external devices can be directly controlled through the Hot Disk Thermal Analyser software to ensure ease of use.

Everything to get you started: The basic TPS 3500 system includes everything to allow you to begin making measurements, including installation and on-site training. The system includes: Hot Disk TPS 3500 instrument; Isotropic, One-dimensional and Structural Probe measurement modules; a Sensor; Insulating Support-Material for Single-Sided testing; Stainless Steel Verification Samples and Room-Temperature Sample Holder.

Optional Software Modules: In addition to the standard ISOTROPIC, ONE-DIMENSIONAL and STRUCTURAL PROBE MODULES, optional software modules for SLAB, THIN FILM, ANISOTROPIC, SPECIFIC HEAT CAPACITY and LOW-DENSITY, HIGHLY-INSULATING SAMPLES are available.
