Brief Description

Thermal Conductivity testing of low-conductivity materials.

Detailed Description

Our Heat Flow Meter determines the thermal conductivity of low thermal conductivity insulation within minutes. It allows for the testing of typical thickness materials used in real-life applications, for example insulation tiles. It has a temperature range of 0 °C to 40°C and a typical measurement for most samples can take as little as 15 minutes, until the temperature stabilizes.

Usage requires academic oversight.
