Provides the analysis of sample sizes typically in the 10 to 200-milligram range with the samples heated by a small furnace (~20 cc volume) capable of operating from 15 to 1600 degrees Celsius. The STA sensor is a double pan differential temperature sensor which is calibrated to generate data for heat flow to the sample with an accuracy of 5% or better. The weight sensor is located remotely below the furnace where it is isolated from sample decomposition products by inert purge through a narrow channel. This provides microgram - level weight change detectability of sample loss or oxidative gain.
