The Highlights

High Performance Symmetrical TGA System (ambient / 1750°C)

- Outstanding isothermal balance performance for long term corrosion/oxidation studies
- No buoyancy effect with dual furnace design for high precision DTA/DSC
- Unique sample geometry for near 100% surface area studies
- Mass Spectrometry Coupling
- Calisto software
The TAG system is the world’s most precise isothermal TGA system. It features the same symmetrical balance beam and aggressive atmosphere control seen in the SETSYS system. In addition it incorporates a pair of matched furnaces which eliminates buoyancy effects and provide unparalleled performance. If you are studying long term corrosion and / or oxidation then nothing comes close to the TAG’s performance.
