Thermal Conductivity & Diffusivity Meters
We provide the most extensive and comprehensive range of instruments for the precise and accurate measurement of heat transfer properties of a wide range of material types and temperatures.
Thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity define a material’s ability to store and transfer heat. The precise and accurate measurement of these properties is critical for any process or material, which experiences a large or fast temperature gradient, or for which the tolerance for temperature change is exacting.

Accurate values of these properties are essential for modeling and managing heat, whether the component of interest is called on to insulate, conduct, or simply withstand temperature changes. Information about these properties are routinely used in heat transfer models of all complexities. Thermophysical property measurements also reflect important information about material composition, purity and structure, as well as secondary performance characteristics such as tolerance to thermal shock.
TA Instruments provides the most extensive and comprehensive range of instruments for the precise and accurate measurement of heat transfer properties of a wide range of material types and temperatures.
TA Heat Flow Meters DTC Series and Fox Series provide the solution to a highly diverse set of testing needs for the direct measurement of thermal conductivity of low to medium conductivity materials. Material that span from insulation building materials to polymers, composites, ceramics and refractories according to a large number of ASTM, ISO and EN standard methods.
The Discovery Flash Diffusivity instruments measure thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity according to the Light Flash Method, which is ideal for moderate to high conductivity materials in the -150°C to 2800°C temperature range. Unique and highly efficient sources, energy transfer lines and detector technology makes the Discovery Flash Diffusivity the most accurate platform for measurements by the Flash Method.
