Anton Paar launches TORC 5000 (Thermo-optical Oscillating Refraction Characterisation)

TORC 5000 simplifies your daily laboratory routine, avoids errors, and eliminates the need for further expensive instruments and equipment.

Thermo-optical Oscillating Refraction Characterisation

Anton Paar launches TORC 5000 (Thermo-optical Oscillating Refraction Characterization), which applies decades of know-how in optical instrumentation to thermal analysis in a unique and easy way.

This revolutionary technique utilizes periodic thermal excitation and analyses the optical response to determine:

  • Time-dependent processes e.g. curing, polymerization, aging
  • Temperature-dependent processes e.g. glass and phase transitions
  • The coefficient of thermal expansion by mathematical models
  • Reaction kinetics e.g. chemical conversion

Everything on one screen

The PC-based software with an intuitive user interface is your guide from the start of your measurement to the results analysis. You can set up measurement series within seconds and get thermal analysis at the push of a button.

Vast range of samples

TORC 5000 is suitable for many different samples. This includes: strongly adhesive substances or samples undergoing phase transitions. Flexible sample volume from a few μl up to 2 mL.
