Differential Thermal Analysis

Differential thermal analysis is a method used to measure the temperature difference between a substance and a reference material as a function of temperature. When a substance reacts, for example during a phase transition, melting, evaporation of water or oxidation, these effects are reflected in changes in the curve of the temperature difference as a function of time. Measurements can be carried out in different atmospheres, and water vapour atmosphere settings can also be adjusted.
