Liquid Cell Testing via Heat Flow Meter Method

The thermal properties of liquids can be determined through the Heat Flow Meter Method. This is achieved with the DTC-300 instrument, a General Purpose Heat Flow Meter. Though a ‘standard’ sample tested via HFM is a solid disc of varying thickness, the implementation of an optional test cell allows for liquids to be tested as well, provided that they are in the range of 0.1 – 1.0 W/m·K.
