The new STA 449 F1 Jupiter® combines unlimited configuration flexibility and unmatched performance in just one instrument.

Key features of STA 449 F1 Jupiter® include:

  • Thermal stability, decomposition behavior, composition, phase transitions, melting processes to be analyzed comprehensively and quickly
  • easily to use top-loading system with exceptionally high balance resolution (25 ng resolution at a weighing range of 5g) and highest long-term stability
  • Interchangeable sensors for DSC measurements with highest sensitivity and best reproducibility for reaction/transition temperatures and enthalpies as well as for measurements of specific heat
  • A variety of optional system enhancements for ideal system adaption to user-defined applications
  • Various furnaces, easily interchangeable by the user, available (optional a swiveling double hoisting device for two furnaces)
  • Pluggable sample carriers (TG, TG-DSC, TG-DTA, etc.)
  • Automatic Sample Changer (ASC) for up to 20 samples
  • Automatic evacuation and refilling (Autovac)
  • Plenty of accessories, e.g. sample crucibles in the most varied of forms and materials
  • Unique for STA: temperature-modulated DSC (TM-DSC)
  • STA model for corrosive gases and accessories for humid atmospheres are available

By supplementary MS-and/or FTIR-coupling even more comprehensive analyzes are possible.

All these features make the new developed STA 449 F1 Jupiter® to the ideal tool for thermal analysis of materials in the fields of research, developments and quality assurance.
