    “Seaforth Geosurveys turned to the C-Therm TCi for effective thermal conductivity characterization in our exploration vessel’s on-board lab. The portability and ease of use of the instrument allowed our technicians to rapidly measure thermal conductivity of our geological core samples accurately and consistently in a 24-7 operation.  As a Nova Scotia based company working worldwide, we were pleased to have a local, made in Atlantic Canada solution for our project requirements.  We would recommend the TCi for any research or screening with a focus on geological and/or in-situ applications, and we will continue to utilize it on new exploration missions.” Seaforth Geosurveys Inc.

    "We purchased the C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer after seeing a demonstration of how fast and easy it is to operate. The instrument provides unequivocal results and provides the flexibility to test powders and liquids. In terms of our satisfaction with the purchase, I'd give it a 10 out of 10 - extremely satisfied." National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

    "My C-Therm TCi is working well and it has been used to generate valuable data. The instrument is a great addition to our lab's testing capabilities." Eaton Cooper Power Systems

  • Dr. Jacques Huot, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Sector: Metal Hydrides)

    "We purchased C-Therm's TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer originally to characterize the thermal conductivity of metal hydrides. We liked that it could operate in a wide range of environments and test different materials. It provides accurate, unambiguous thermal conductivity results. What I've really come to appreciate about it is how easy it is to operate. Our students can train on it for 30 mins and be proficient in being left on their own in running their samples. We have many visiting scholars that used C-Therm's TCi for many types of samples. This equipment is really versatile." Institut de recherche sur l'hydrogène (IRH)

  • Jose Fonseca, Expert Thermodynamics, Covestro (Sector: Polymers)

    "The C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer has provided our group a fast, accurate capability to test the thermal conductivity of our polymers with C-Therm’spatented high-precision MTPS sensor. The instrument has become very popular within our group for its quick easy reliable measurement and the support from C-Therm has exceeded our expectations.  We recently upgraded the unit with the new robust TLS module for work on polymer melts." Covestro

  • Kurt Miller, President, Axel Products (Sector: Contract Lab)

    "As a contract test lab, we need dependable instrumentation so we can serve our customers. After many years using a different transient method, we now use the C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer and it works great!"  Axel Products

  • Dr. Pradeep Rai, Senior Research Scientist, Vertec Polymers (Sector: Polymers and Composites)

    (Video) "C-Therm TCi probe is very easy to use, very versatile. I can do my material testing within a couple of minutes. I don't have to spend all day and all the time to adjust thermal conductivity measurement. And time is important to me, to just know the number and move on; and this probe allows me to do the testing whenever I need, as I need, and I can do it quite quickly."  Vertec Polymers

  • John R., USA (Sector: Thermoelectrics)

    "While other thermal conductivity measurement techniques suffer from slow speed, difficult sample preparation, and/or accuracy limitations due to model inputs, the C-Therm TCi’s strength lies in its elegant approach to a notoriously difficult measurement. The C-Therm TCi has helped us rapidly screen processes for manufacturing thermoelectric materials.  C-Therm’s product support is truly world class. Whether supporting existing platforms or extending system capability through advances such as the thin film module, C-Therm stands out as a vendor we have grown to count on."

    "...outstanding technical support and fundamental understanding of the mathematics and engineering complexities of heat transfer issues has greatly impressed me."  Lubrizol

  • Robert Mendenhall, COO, American Aerogel Corporation (Sector: Vacuum Insulation)

    "The technology has allowed us to provide accurate quality assurance for our products that wasn’t previously attainable by any other methods. The instrumentation has been a rapid and consistent means for our company to ensure that every product leaving our facility meets our rigid specifications. It has given us a competitive advantage. In fact, we’ve been awarded contracts partly due to the superiority of the instrumentation over every other means of quality testing."  American Aerogel Corporation

  • Dr. Steven Oldenburg, CEO, NanoComposix (Sector: NanoMaterials)

    (Video) "We wanted something that was going to measure small volumes and do it in a rapid and easy format and the TCi Thermal Conductivity instrument was perfect for our needs.  The thing I like most about the TCi is it is extremely easy to use."  NanoComposix

  • Dr. Ernest Wolff, CEO, PMIC Lab (Sector: Contract Lab)

    "The main benefit of the TCi to our testing lab is its ease of use and short test times. It allows us to get accurate results as quickly as possible and with excellent repeatability. Our test times are only a fraction of what they are using steady state methods. Equally important, the service level has exceeded our expectations."  PMIC Lab
