Thermal Analysis System Flash DSC 2+ from Mettler Toledo

The Flash DSC 2+ is the ideal complement to conventional DSC with heating and cooling rates that cover a range of more than 7 decades.

Gain new insight into materials

The Flash DSC 2+ available from Mettler Toledo revolutionizes rapid-scanning DSC. The instrument can examine restructuring processes that were not possible before now. The Flash DSC 2+ is the perfect complement to traditional DSC. At present, the cooling and heating rates cover a range of over 70 years.

Users can make the most of the quickest commercially available DSC—ideal for analyzing rapid crystallization and reorganization processes in a temperature varying from –95 °C to 1000 °C.

The ultra-high cooling and heating rates add a new dimension to the analysis of thermally induced chemical processes and physical transitions, such as reorganization and crystallization of metals, polymers, and other materials.

Ultra-high heating and cooling rates

The use of high heating rates allows materials to be examined without interference from reorganization processes—there is no time for these processes to take place. Also, the Flash Differential Scanning Calorimetry is the perfect technique for the analysis of crystallization kinetics.

Fast response sensor

In the Flash DSC 2+, the sample is positioned directly onto the MultiSTAR chip sensor. The patented dynamic power compensation control circuit enables measurements to be carried out with the least noise level at high cooling and heating rates. The Flash DSC 2+ is made to operate using either of the two MultiSTAR sensors (UFH 1 or UFS 1) fixed on a steady ceramic substrate with electrical connections.

User-friendly ergonomics and functionality

Users can carry out the insertion and preparation of a sample by sitting conveniently in front of the instrument. Initially, the sample is cut to size on a small glass microscope slide positioned over the sensor. Then, an appropriate sample specimen is placed directly on the sensor and positioned using a hair.
