DSC-60 Plus Series Differential Scanning Calorimeters with Auto-Cooling


DSC-60A Plus with Mechanical Auto-Cooling System TAC-60i and DSC-60A Plus with Liquid Nitrogen Auto-Cooling System TAC-60L

Low-Temperature Differential Scanning Calorimetry Measurements with the Upmost Control

Combining the sensitivity and high resolution of Shimadzu’s DSC-60 Plus series with auto-cooling results in robust systems for controlled, consecutive measurements below ambient temperature. Auto-cooling systems available for the DSC-60 Plus series include the TAC-60L liquid nitrogen auto cooling system for very low temperature work and the TAC-60i mechanical auto-cooling system when measuring slightly below ambient temperature.

Four auto-cooling DSC-60 Plus series systems are available:

  • DSC-60 Plus model with TAC-60i mechanical auto-cooling system
  • DSC-60A Plus model with an autosampler and TAC-60i mechanical auto-cooling system
  • DSC-60 Plus model with TAC-60L liquid nitrogen auto-cooling system
  • DSC-60A Plus model with an autosampler and TAC-60L liquid nitrogen auto-cooling system

Features

Mechanical Auto-Cooling from -50 to 500°C without the Need for Liquid Nitrogen

Consecutive measurements at temperatures between -50 and 500°C are enabled using the DSC-60 Plus series with the TAC-60i mechanical auto-cooling system. The system consists of an immersion cooler and does not use liquid nitrogen.

Consistent Auto-Cooling Between -130 and 500°C with Liquid Nitrogen

The TAC-60L liquid nitrogen auto-cooling system reduces pulsation and maintains a stable baseline by controlling the amount of liquid nitrogen in the DSC-60 Plus series main unit’s cooling chamber to keep a constant supply flow rate. In addition, when sub-ambient measurement is not required, the detector and furnace design enables the DSC-60 Plus series to be run to 500°C without needing liquid nitrogen.

Automated Measurements at Low Temperature

Compatibility of the DSC-60A Plus model with the TAC-60L liquid nitrogen auto-cooling system and the TAC-60i mechanical auto-cooling system results in automated low-temperature differential scanning calorimetry measurements of up to 24 samples. Between tests, these cooling units return the furnace to a specified temperature to eliminate condensation during sample exchange.
