Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) Measures Rate of Heat Flow
Differential scanning calorimetry, or DSC, is a thermal analysis procedure that measures the rate of heat flow as a sample undergoes phase transitions. DSC helps identify exactly how much heat is needed to transform a sample from one state (solid) to another (liquid).
Every project is unique; contact one of our highly skilled analysts to discuss your specific needs regarding differential scanning calorimetry at 1-888-740-LABS (5227).
Differential scanning calorimetry can be used to analyze the rate of both endothermic and exothermic phase transitions by measuring the rate of change in the test sample against that of a known reference material.
Differential scanning calorimetry is a useful for:
- Quality control in industrial settings
- Studying sample purity
- Measuring a sample’s degree of crystallinity and oxidation
- Determining variations in sample composition
- Studying polymer curing
One of the main benefits of differential scanning calorimetry is its speed and ease-of-use in showing phase transitions in materials.
