Multiple thermal analysis of natural materials.
Am Laboratory 1971 Jan; :8-14
As part of its oil-shale research, the Bureau of Mines developed thermal analysis equipment that provides simultaneous differential thermal analysis, thermogravimetry, and evolved gas analysis of a single sample during programed heating. The equipment is described to illustrate its features and applications. Although it was created and assembled expressly for solid-fuel studies, this apparatus also solved the problems associated with thermal analysis of other natural materials.
