Characterization of materials

  • TPS Tenney Jr. thermal chamber

Small thermal chamber that can maintain a temperature of -70 °C to 200 °C, allowing for the measurement of the thermal performances of samples of construction or wall assembly materials.

  • C-Therm Trident

Instrument for measuring the thermal conductivity of materials from 0.03 to 10 W/m∙K, accurate to within 5%, which makes it possible to analyze solid, liquid, powder or paste samples between ‑50 °C and 200 °C without damaging or changing their properties. Allows for use of the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS), Transient Plane Source (TPS) and Transient Line Source (TLS) methods, and meets ISO 22007-2, ASTM D7984, D5334 and D5930 standards.

Test benches

Test benches

Controlled environment test bench (BE2C)
