Detail Technical Brochure

Dilatometry is a thermo analytical technique, which measures linear dilation (expansion/shrinkage) of solid materials as a function of temperature. By measuring the linear dilation of a material as a function of temperature (or time), its physico-chemical characterization can be carried out, which include evaluation of coefficient of thermal expansion, sintering behavior, glass transition and other structural phase transitions, etc. The technique is also used to study solid-gas surface chemical reactions under controlled conditions. The technique finds wide application in study and development of a variety of materials (ceramics, polymers, metals, alloys, glasses, composites, etc.) in research, development, quality control and engineering applications.

SALIENT FEATURES OF DEVELOPED EQUIPMENT

The developed technology is an indigenously designed, easy to operate, cost effective, automated equipment based on linear variable differential transformer (LVDT). It is useful for measurement of temperature dependent dilation (thermal expansion/shrinkage) of solids in temperature range from 298 to 1373 K. The equipment is a versatile tool to characterize linear thermal expansion behavior, sintering behavior, glass transition and other phase transitions occurring in a material.
