Oxford, England — Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Corp., a manufacturer of analysis and measuring instruments, introduced a new series of thermal analyzers for advanced materials development and quality control.
The two instruments, Nexta DSC600 and Nexta DSC200, have redesigned sensors that improve sensitivity, resolution and reliability for accurate analysis, according to a company news release.
Both models also have a new furnace configuration to deliver a baseline repeatability for a range of applications, including research and development and quality control of incoming and outgoing finished goods, the release says.
In addition, the two instruments come with an option to add Hitachi's proprietary RealView brand system, which allows sample changes to be seen in real time and with dual cooling options. The company says the instruments automatically switch between electrical cooling and liquid nitrogen cooling when necessary saving time and cost.
The dual cooling system simplifies sub -80º C analysis, negating the need to manually disconnect the electrical cooling system when liquid nitrogen cooling is required, the release also says.
"We've designed the new Nexta DSC range to meet the demands of research and development labs and quality control departments in developing new materials and for ensuring the quality of many materials including polymers, chemicals, ceramics, metals, petrochemicals and food," Ashley-Kate McCann, product manager, Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science, said in the release.
The instruments company is a subsidiary of Hitachi High-Tech Corp.
