DSC 204 F1 Phoenix

The premium DSC for all requirements 


The versatile Premium Differential Scanning Calorimeter, DSC 204 F1 Phoenix, fascinates with its unique concept: all essential operational components are integrated into the instrument and optional add-ons can be installed anytime on site.

The DSC measuring cell consists of a cylindrical high-conductivity silver block with an embedded heating coil for broad thermal symmetry (3D symmetry) in the sample chamber, the cooling ports for liquid nitrogen or compressed air cooling and a cooling ring for connection of the intracooler (also with simultaneous liquid nitrogen cooling). The gas-tight construction and integrated mass flow controllers for the purge and protective gases allow coupling to an FT-IR or MS for gas analysis.


Exchangeable sensors are tailored to their tasks:

With its disk-shaped silver carrier plate and supersensitive thermosensors of nickel-chromium constantan, the Tau-sensor offers a high level of calorimetric sensitivity along with extremely short signal time constants of only 0.6 seconds, which guarantees good separation of overlapping thermal effects.

The µ-sensor stands out for its high level of calorimetric sensitivity, never before achieved with a Differential Scanning Calorimeter, DSC. For example, it is extremely well suited for pharmaceutical applications with small sample weights.
