CTL01 10g Screening Tool

CTL01 Mast                                 Logo-Chilworth-a-DEKRA-company_RGB.jpg         

An instrument for thermal stability and pressure rate screening to search for exothermic activity and gas generation of powders and liquids. 


  • Larger 10 g or 15 ml test sample size makes it easier to test a representative multiphase sample compared to other thermal stability measurement techniques
  • The Carius Tube can be re-configured to enable sample addition during the duration of the test
  • Enables permanent measurement of pressure and temperature to determine whether tube pressure in the tube is due to vapour pressure or permanent gas generation
  • Useful preliminary screening technique prior to conducting large scale Adiabatic Dewar Calorimeter testing
