All About Thermal Conductivity Testing Instruments and Methods

An Introduction to Thermal Conductivity

Thermal conductivity quantifies the rate at which heat transfers through a given material. While the thermal conductivity of pure materials is mostly known, composite materials or materials in different physical states are often not well-characterized, and these materials tend to be most valuable for technological purposes (e.g. polymer composites, metal alloys, potting compounds, nanomaterials.)

No single thermal conductivity instrument or method is appropriate for all samples and applications and choosing the incorrect test method or conditions often results in errors. Some measurement techniques require large sample sizes and long test times, which may not be efficient for researchers working with small sample volumes, such as nanofluids or explosives.

C-Therm is a pioneer in developing thermal conductivity instruments that deliver the shortest test times and highest precision across a broad range of applications. Our patented Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) technology conforms to ASTM D7984 and is used around the globe for R&D, quality control, and on-line production monitoring in a wide range of industries.

Methods for Measuring Thermal Conductivity: Steady-State vs Transient Methods

Steady-state methods apply a heat source continually to sample material. They are considered the traditional standard in some applications, such as the Guarded Hot Plate method for building materials. Measurement accuracy often requires large samples, exacting sample preparation to conform to ISO standards, and long test times. This destructive method does not work for liquids or high thermal conductivity materials and required specially machined sample slabs.

Steady-state methods for measuring thermal conductivity include:

  • Guarded Hot Plate (ASTM C177)
  • Heat Flow Meter (ASTM C518)
  • Guarded-Comparative–Longitudinal Heat Flow Meter (ASTM E1225)
  • Comparative-axial-heat-flow (cut-bar) Method

Transient methods apply the heat source periodically or in a pulse, which dramatically reduces test times (minutes versus hours). Transient methods have surpassed steady-state methods over the past three decades due to their flexibility in terms of short test times, accuracy, and smaller sample size.

There are four common transient methods for measuring thermal conductivity:

  • Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS): (ASTM D7984)
  • Transient Plane Source (TPS): (ISO 22007-2 and GB/T 32064)
  • Transient Line Source (TLS): (ASTM D5334 and D5930)
  • Laser Flash Diffusivity: (ASTM E1461)

Steady-state methods for measuring thermal conductivity, including the heat flow meter (HFM) method, are the oldest measurement methods and are considered the traditional standard across some industries. While accurate, they are limited in material application, thermal conductivity range, and test times.

Steady-State Method Example, Heat Flow Meter, ASTM C518

Transient test methods have outpaced steady-state methods on a number of fronts:

  • Accelerated results – Steady-state methods are referenced as the industry standard around characterizing the thermal conductivity of insulation products. However, transient methods, including C-Therm’s Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) method, can accelerate characterizing materials and data collection to minutes instead of hours.
  • Accuracy – Comparing steady-state and transient measurements of thermal conductivity, their performance is similar. When comparing the steady-state heat flow meter method and the MTPS measurement of foam materials, both methods provided results within 2% of the expected value on NIST traceable materials. Notably, the MTPS method took five measurements within approximately five minutes and it took the HFM method over an hour to accomplish the same.
  • Shorter test times – steady-state methods require a minimum of 30 minutes, while some transient measurement methods can produce results in a matter of seconds. C-Therm’s Trident Thermal Conductivity Instrument can produce results in 0.08 to 3 seconds using the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) sensor.
  • Smaller sample sizes – Steady-state methods require samples to conform to plates used in the measurement process used to achieve thermal equilibrium, typically 30 cm square. This requires special preparation of samples—it can be challenging to achieve necessary planar dimensions on sample materials.
  • Dynamic testing options – Transient methods offer a broader range of materials testing beyond insulation products. For example, C-Therm’s Trident Thermal Conductivity Instrument can test solids, liquids, powders, and pastes.

Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) Method: Offering Maximum Sample Versatility, Simplicity, and Reproducibility.

The MTPS sensor tests solids, liquids, powders, and pastes.

The Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) sensor, patented by C-Therm and developed in collaboration with industry leaders including Kodak and the US Navy, enables users to rapidly test a broad range of samples without damaging them.

The MTPS method employs a single-sided sensor to measure the thermal conductivity of solids, liquids, powders, and pastes. The 18-millimeter diameter sensor is ideal for small sample sizes and can provide results in 1 to 3 seconds (fastest of any other transient solutions).

Transient Plane Source (TPS) Method: For Greater Control Over Experimental Design and Test Conditions

C-Therm’s hot disc sensors for measuring thermal conductivity conform to ISO 22007-2.

The flex TPS double-sided sensor uses the hot disc – ISO 22007-2 method for testing solids.

Where the MTPS method offers easy plug-and-play capabilities, the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method is recommended for experienced researchers seeking more control over experimental parameters. The TPS method uses a double-sided hot disc sensor that is used for measuring the thermal conductivity of polymers, compacted geological samples, metals, concrete, and asphalt. TPS sensor can measure materials up to 500ºC.

Transient Line Source (TLS) Method: The Most Robust Sensor for Thermal Conductivity Testing

The TLS needle tests a wide range of materials in two to ten minutes.

The Transient Line Source (TLS) method uses an electrically-heated needle to measure the thermal conductivity of granular materials, polymer melts, soils, slurries, and gels. The heat from the needle flows out into the sample, and users plot temperature differences at two different points: the tip of the wire and the middle of the needle. Thermal conductivity is calculated through the temperature difference at these two points and the logarithm of time. This measurement takes approximately two to ten minutes.

What Can Influence Thermal Conductivity Testing?

While the thermal conductivity of materials can vary widely depending on factors such as density, crystallinity, morphology and saturation, getting reliable thermal conductivity data is dependent on two major factors:

  1. Choosing the correct measurement method and thermal conductivity instrument for your sample.
  2. Replicating the real-world application conditions and environment of the material (e.g. temperature, pressure, humidity).

Below is a summary of how environmental effects impact thermal conductivity measurement and how to choose the most suitable instrument to avoid errors.

How Thermal Conductivity Changes With Temperature

High-temperature thermal conductivity measurements have proved challenging for instrumentation: traditional transient method sensors would become soft at high temperatures or limited to a single use. The Trident Thermal Conductivity Instrument can test samples in environments up to 500°C, with specialty MTPS sensor chips and high-temperature mica Flex TPS sensors.

The Impact of Phase Change on Thermal Conductivity Measurement

Phase change (e.g. from liquid to solid or vice versa) can affect the thermal conductivity measurement of a material. C-Therm’s Trident Thermal Conductivity Instrument can test both liquids and solids, ideal for characterizing thermoplastic composites. Additionally, the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) sensor applies a quick pulse (0.08 seconds) to avoid convection errors during measurement.

Thermal Anisotropy and Heat Flux in Measuring the Thermal Conductivity of Oriented Solids

Thermal conductivity may vary on a single material sample due to its structure. For example, the effective in-plane vs. through-plane (radial vs. axial) following the direction of graphene additives in composite polymers. C-Therm’s MTPS one-sided sensor provides greater control over measurement: instead of mocking up a sample for testing, users only need to apply the sensor to the surface area they want to measure. As a result, the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) method has become a popular choice for measuring the thermal conductivity of anisotropic samples, specifically for manufacturing conductive polymers with oriented fillers.

The double-sided flex Transient Plane Source sensor can also test the axial and radial thermal conductivity of materials (two samples required for measurement) via the specialty anisotropy utility.

How Material Density Impacts Thermal Conductivity Measurement

How granular materials are packed or loaded onto a testing instrument can impact thermal conductivity measurements. There are a number of factors that can improve measurement efficiency and consistency, including smaller sample sizes and maintaining uniform contact with the probe or sensor. C-Therm’s Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) method solves many issues around measuring the thermal conductivity of powders.

The classical definition of thermal conductivity would suggest it is truly only able to be measured in a solid, but in the majority of thermal conductivity testing, researchers and engineers are seeking to understand the effective thermal conductivity, which means under a density and environment that the material will be utilized. As density will ultimately affect thermal conductivity, the compression test accessory available for MTPS instruments is a great control device for testing under consistent load.

What are the Units of Thermal Conductivity?

How do you calculate the rate at which heat penetrates through a given material? The units for measuring thermal conductivity are W/mK, or watts per meter-kelvin.

Materials with high thermal conductivity can conduct heat well; materials with low thermal conductivity are good insulators. The measurement of thermal conductivity (k) can determine thermal resistance (R) and thermal conductance (C).
