DIL 805A/D Quenching Dilatomers

The DIL805 Series comprises of four models: DIL 805L, DIL 805A are quenching dilatometers, DIL 805A/D is a quenching with the capability to deform the specimen by compression, and DIL 805A/D/T that can also stretch it in tension mode.

All four instruments are fully automated, self-contained units used to measure dimensional changes under extreme conditions of controlled heating and cooling.

DIL 806 Optical Dilatometer

This optical dilatometric measurement method used in DIL 806 is an absolute process, entirely independent of any possible expansion or contraction of the instrument. Consequently, measured results do not need to be corrected or calibrated for different temperature programs. Coupled with the fast response of the DIL806 furnace, this makes the system particular well-suited for the analysis of dynamic processes that involve multiple temperature steps and dynamic heating rates.

DIL 820 HT HiTemp Vertical Dilatometers

The 820HT Series operates up to high temperatures in a vertical orientation , making it uniquely set up for the analysis of sintering, studies in Rate Controlled Sintering (RCS) mode and the determination of dilatometric parameters of samples otherwise Impossible to be correctly analyzed on classic dilatometers with horizontal design.

Available in two different models (DIL 821HT and DIL 822HT), both the units feature the new optical encoder with 1nm resolution. That when combined with the True Differential of the DIL822HT, the result is simply the best possible sensitivity and CTE accuracy in the high temperatures segment.

DIL 820 Series Vertical Dilatometers

The 820 Series operate in a vertical orientation, making it uniquely set up for the analysis of sintering, studies in Rate Controlled Sintering (RCS) mode and the determination of dilatometric parameters of samples otherwise difficult to be analyzed on classic dilatometers with horizontal design.

Available in two different models (DIL 821 and DIL 822), both the units feature the new optical encoder with 1nm resolution. That when combined with the True Differential of the DIL822, the result is simply the best possible sensitivity and CTE accuracy on the market.

DIL 803 Dual Sample Dilatometer

To maximize sample throughput, DIL 803 and DIL 803L offers two-samples simultaneous operation. DIL803 and DIL 803L can also be operated with an inert reference sample for quasi-differential measurement, reducing the influence of measurement system expansion and increasing measurement accuracy under dynamic temperature conditions. The DIL 803 is designed for measurements under vacuum or inert gas while the DIL 803L is designed for measurements under air, making the DIL 803L ideally suited to measuring ceramic materials

DIL 802 True Differential Dilatometer

For highest measurement accuracy, DIL 802 and DIL 802L provides a truly differential measurement. Measuring only the difference between the sample and the reference specimen, the True Differential design negates the influence of measurement system expansion on the sample measurement. This measurement design is of particular benefit for dynamic temperature programs such as those employed in Rate-Controlled-Sintering (RCS) and for measurements at lower temperatures. The DIL 802 is designed for measurements under vacuum or inert gas while the DIL 802L is designed for measurements under air.

DIL 801 Single Sample Dilatometer

Suitable for a wide range of routine dilatometric tests, the DIL 801 and DIL 801L are horizontally configured single-sample dilatometers. The DIL 801 is designed for measurements under vacuum or inert gas while the DIL 801L is designed for measurements in air, making the DIL 801L ideally suited to measuring ceramic materials which are often processed in air.

Without a doubt DIL 801 and DIL 801L represent today the the dilatometers with the best price / performance ratio on the market

DLF 1200

The Discovery Laser Flash DLF 1200 employs a custom Class 1 Nd:Glass Laser pulse source to provide a collimated, monochromatic energy pulse with a 300 μs to 400 μs pulse width. Ideal for labs that need to measure thermal diffusivity, heat capacity or thermal conductivity at temperatures up to 1200°C, or require the power of a laser in a compact benchtop instrument.

Equipped with a liquid nitrogen-cooled IR detector, DLF 1200 provides high precision, quick response, non-contact measurements in air, inert gas or vacuum to 10-3 torr. Simple to operate and safe to use, easy to maintain and very economical to operate, these systems are suitable for research and development programs, as well as quality control.

DXF 900

The Discovery Xenon Flash (DXF) source module employs a High Speed Xenon-pulse Delivery source (HSXD) which has considerably higher efficiency, lower costs and less maintenance than equivalent systems. A reflective optic configuration of our design effectively harnesses the power of a Xenon flash tube and, with the aid of proprietary wave guides, delivers it to the specimen inside the Environmental Module. DXF 900 produces a pulse width of 400 μs to 600 μs and uniformly concentrates the power from the flash source directly on the entire face of the specimen. Due to this optimized optical arrangement and the broad light spectrum, specimens as large as 25 mm in diameter can be illuminated with sufficient energy to make a high-accuracy measurement. The use of large samples diminishes errors associated with inhomogeneity and permits representative measurements of poorly dispersed composites.
