ELS-MDF is the new contact-less thermal analysis instrument able to reproduce industrial heating cycles while unifying the following measurement techniques:

  • Heating Microscope to study the fusibility of materials (ceramic raw materials, glazes, frits, ashes, glasses);
  • Optical Dilatometer to study the coefficient of thermal expansion and sintering behaviour during firing;
  • Optical Fleximeter to study the piroplasticity and the state of tension between the glaze and the ceramic body.

The instrument reproduces in laboratory the industrial firing cycle:

  • Up to 80°C/min
  • Up to 1400°C
  • Fast cooling
