DIL 2010 STD Dilatomer from Orton Ceramic Foundation

Orton offers DIL 2010 STD dilatometer that is typically used for dilatometry or Thermal Dilatometer Analysis (TDA). TDA helps in determining the dimensional change of materials, including glass, ceramics, composites, metals, carbon/graphite, polymers, minerals, etc. as a function of temperature.

A typical dilatometer test measures reversible as well as irreversible modifications in length during heating and cooling process, and identifies where reactions occur that cause contraction or expansion.

Using a dilatometer, test samples can be easily and rapidly measured for determining thermal expansion ranges for R&D, QC or product certification, determining firing ranges and firing schedules, and measuring thermal expansion ranges for glaze fits.

Key Features

The main features of the DIL 2010 STD dilatometer are:

  • Allows test samples to be measured easily and quickly
  • Measures reversible and irreversible changes in length during heating and cooling
  • Identifies reactions that cause contraction or expansion


The applications of the DIL 2010 STD dilatometer are:

  • Glass transition temperature
  • Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE)
  • Curie point
  • Softening point
  • Phase transition
  • Crystalline transformation
  • Warping
  • Shrinkage
  • Bloating
  • Isothermal creep
