Thermal properties measurements in materials

Thermal properties measurements in materials

Sensor type

For most materials that are softer than rock, METER recommends using the KS-3 sensor. If a diffusivity or specific heat measurement is required, then the SH-3 dual-needle sensor can be used in most instances.

Material types

Insulation, polymers, and building materials are all measurable with our instruments. However, some sample types are more uncommon than others.  For questions or concerns about measuring the thermal properties of materials, please contact METER directly.

See “How to collect samples for thermal analysis“.

Accurate readings at top speed

For over four decades, scientists and engineers have relied on our analyzer for measuring thermal properties in almost anything—and we mean anything.
