Navas TGA-3000

Thermogravimetric Analyzer with External Balance

Multi-Sample (19) Thermogravimetric Analyzer With Operational Software In Windows And Additional External Balance For Increased Throughput

This model is similar to TGA-2000 or TGA-1000 series but with an additional external balance used to obtain the initial weights of crucibles, samples and/or covers outside furnace during the analysis time for increased throughput.

The TGA-3000 series uses only one PC to manage both the external balance and the instrument at the same time. This configuration allows from 20 to 60% more throughput.

Different sizes of ceramic crucibles can be used depending on the size of the sample to be analyzed.
