      "C-Therm's MTPS sensor is a very easy and quick technique to measure the thermal conductivity of samples. The instrument setup is very simple and can be used with a wide range of materials. In our lab, we use it with polymer and graphene materials. Having the sensor operate at a broader temperature range is a plus. The team at C-Therm is also very helpful and responds quickly if we need any support or guidance to use the instrument."

      "To whom are looking a reliable Thermal Conductivity Analyzer, TCi™ Thermal Conductivity Analyzer is very easy to operate. A single test with multiple runs (for a statistical reason) can be done in 20 to 25 minutes or shorter. The results are accurate thanks to a precision calibration provided by C-Therm Technologies Ltd., The entire Integrated Science and Technology (ISAT) Program at James Madison University (JMU) School of Integrated Sciences has been benefitting from using it especially for measuring the thermal conductivity of building materials in our sophomore Energy labs, and senior capstone projects involving EF Block® (Environmental Friendly, novel, lightweight, degradable, high R-value building block). The thermal effusivity value is part of the MTPS (Modified Transient Plane Source) sensor outputs which gives our students a better understanding of the transient heat conduction relationships between the specific heat, the density, and the thermal conductivity of building materials. In short, we are truly thrilled to own this sensor and believe that it will serve our students and faculty members for many years to come. Also, here we would like to thank both the sales and technical support teams from C-THERM who provided us a very valuable training session and professional service before and after the purchase of this thermal conductivity analyzer."

      "C-Therm MTPS enabled us to perform much faster thermal measurements than using our old equipment. What is more, the device allowed us to determine the thermal effusivity which is relevant for building materials that we test. The support from C-Therm and COMEF is great."

    • Qingdao University

      "The traditional method of thermal conductivity testing for textiles is mainly by a Sweating Guarded Hotplate. Using this method, the thermal conductivity of the fabric is greatly affected by temperature and humidity in the testing process. Error of test results is large, the process takes a long time, and required sample size is large, which also leads to a lot of waste of samples. Therefore, how to quickly and effectively test the thermal conductivity of fabrics was an urgent problem to be solved. After the purchase, the thermal conductivity measurement of our fabrics and other samples has been accelerated, and multiple sets of measurements can be conducted to ensure the accuracy and stability of test data. At the same time, the thermal properties of samples with low thermal conductivity can now be determined."

      "We have been using C-Therm for the last 10 years. During this period of time we have been able to analyse a great variety of materials due to the equipment's versatility: from solids to powders, liquids and pastes. This is a vital feature for us, as a central analysis service for researchers of our own university, other education and research institutions and companies in Spain and abroad."

      "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."
