The design concept combines the performance and versatility of the large furnace TGA 1, TGA/DSC 1, TGA/DSC 2 or TGA/SDTA85xe thermobalance with a unique interface approach that allows a humidity generator to be connected via a transfer line within a few minutes.
Measurements at controlled relative humidity provide information that is crucial for understanding the effects that moisture content can have on the properties of a wide range of materials:
- Processing – spray-dried powder that becomes moist can potentially block production equipment
- Product shelf life – can be shortened by moisture uptake due to inadequate packaging
- Structural properties – moisture content can reduce bioavailability and influence the therapeutic effect
