TORC 5000 – The Optics Route to Thermal Analysis from Anton Paar

Share Article

Anton Paar launches TORC 5000, which applies decades of know-how in optical instrumentation to thermal analysis in a unique and easy way.

TORC 5000

The brand new Thermo-optical Oscillating Refraction Characterization technique utilizes periodic thermal excitation and analyzes the optical response. This revolutionary approach enables determination of time-dependent processes e.g. polymerization and curing as well as temperature-dependent behaviors such as phase and glass transitions. Integrated mathematical models deliver the coefficient of thermal expansion. The measurement of all above parameters with virtually no sample preparation greatly simplifies laboratory routines and eliminates the need for further expensive instruments and equipment.
