The STA 449 f1 Jupiter excels in endless configuration flexibility and high performance in just one single instrument. It has:

  • - Quick and detailed analysis of thermal stability, decomposition behavior, composition, phase transitions, melting processes
  • - User friendly top-loading system with highly precise balance resolution
  • - 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
  • - Various furnaces, easily interchangeable by the user, available
  • - Pluggable sample carriers (TGA, TGA-DSC, TGA-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)
