TA Instruments Broadens Its TGA Portfolio with the Acquisition of Rubotherm

TA Instruments today announced the acquisition of Rubotherm GmbH of Bochum, Germany.

Rubotherm develops and manufactures analytical test instruments for thermogravimetric and sorption measurements that are used in both industrial and academic research laboratories in disciplines that include chemistry, material science and engineering.

The Rubotherm instruments are based on a patented magnetic suspension balance that allows for contactless measurement of mass changes of samples in a closed reactor under controlled environments with extraordinarily high resolution and accuracy.

Applications include gravimetric measurements over a wide temperature range, under vacuum or high pressures, using corrosives, toxics or vapors as reaction atmospheres.

These systems are used every day in the world’s largest and most prestigious companies, academic institutions, and national standards laboratories.

Rubotherm brings a great new technology and capability to TA in the form of their patented magnetic suspension balance. The application of this technology in TGA opens new markets for TA and further extends our world leading position in thermal analysis.

Terry Kelly, President of TA Instruments

TA Instruments – a subsidiary of Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) – is the leading manufacturer of analytical instruments for thermal analysis, rheology, and microcalorimetry. The company is headquartered in New Castle, Delaware, USA, and has direct operations in 24 countries.
