The new "Extended heating rates" module for the EMI III heating microscope software offers you the possibility to heat your specimens up slowly while still in a controlled manner. This option is put into effect by switching the units of the heating rate from Kelvin per minute (K/min) to Kelvin per hour (K/h). With the new module, you can reduce the minimal heating rate from 0.1 K/min to 0.0017 K/min, or 0.1 K/h respectively.
Low heating rates like these are of interest for all users, who want to adjust a process-oriented heating profile or who want to meticulously determine temperature-induced material processes. In general, this applies to all sintering processes in the field of ceramics or powder metallurgy. Amongst others, the module is used for monitoring de-binding processes for the production of electroceramics.
