Webinar: Basics and Applications of Thermal Analysis

Materials thermal analysis is an integral part of quality control for many industries, from determining the fat content of chocolate to determining phase transitions in steel. However, despite many differing applications, the principle of thermal analysis – and how to use it to give you essential product parameters – doesn’t really change.

We’ve created a webinar that aims to give you a solid grounding in the basics of thermal analysis and how to understand and interpret your results. Understanding this method of analysis at this fundamental level should help you to get the most from your own equipment and thermal analysis procedures.


What you’ll learn:

  • What is thermal analysis and which specific measurement techniques does it cover?
  • Why thermal analysis is essential for many of today’s production lines.
  • How different measurement techniques work on a technical level and what information you get from each one.
  • How to interpret results using typical results over a range of specific applications for each analysis type.
  • The limitations of the techniques and how different thermal measurements can be used together to give you a complete picture of material characteristics.
