Dr. Vivek Kapur

E.I. DuPont De Nemours

“The TPS 2500 S with 8-channel switching system, increased our productivity several fold. Without it, we were testing no more than 10 samples/day with constant supervision. Now we can test over 50 samples/day (with minimal supervision) and still be able to attend to other activities in the lab. I cannot say enough about the help Thermtest continues to provide. They have been extremely helpful and responsive, whenever we have needed their help.”

Marius Haiducu, M.Sc., P.Eng.

Simon Fraser University

“In our laboratory (the Laboratory for Alternative Energy Conversion, SFU), the TPS 2500 S is used for measuring the thermal conductivity of a wide range of materials, ranging from thermally insulating materials to thermally conductive ones. For that entire range of tested materials, the device was able to perform a precise and reliable measurement. The results of the measurements were in very good agreement with the values found in the literature; some of the results were also compared with the results obtained with another measurement method (i.e., heated guard plate). Additionally, we are very pleased with the technical feedback and support we’ve received since we bought the equipment.”

“We upgraded to the Hot Disk TPS over a previously used modified transient method, which required onerous calibration. We have found the Hot Disk to have superior capabilities and easy to use. It has been an important part of our research efforts for the measurement of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. We have grown to rely on the Hot Disk for a wide variety of projects from thermal management in space suits to nano-enhanced heat transfer fluids.”

Dr. Felipe Chibante

University of New Brunswick – Richard J. Currie Chair in Nanotechnology

“We are very impressed with the TPS 2500 S to rapidly test the diverse systems we study within the Applied Nanotech Lab, such as nano-composites and nano-fluids. Of particular interest are anisotropic systems, measuring multiple thermal properties in different directions at the same time. Furthermore, I’m impressed with the capability of the instrument to be quickly learned and utilized by many students to provide reliable and accurate data. This apparatus and the broad thermal knowledge-base and expertise of Thermtest in providing timely support, has been very valuable for our Lab.”

National Research Institute

“After using the Hot Disk TPS testing services at Thermtest to measure several calibration materials for use on our MTPS instrument, we decided to take advantage of Thermtest’s trade-in program. With our new TPS 2500 S, we are able to make direct measurements of thermal conductivity, with no onerous calibration of the system. I would highly recommend independently searching for published papers covering your application or material, I have found this to be the best unbiased source for complete theory of a testing instrument. ”

Ph.D. Materials Chemist

US National Laboratory

“Several years ago, we purchased a TPS 2500 S to be used for a single project. We were so pleased with our TPS 2500 S that we bought another TPS 2500 S along with several options for measuring thermal conductivity as function of temperature. We now use our two units for multiple projects, testing a wide range of materials, such as ceramics, concrete and thin coatings. Thermtest has been very supportive during many years of use, in particular with challenging measurements. Thermtest recommended the optimal approach to get the most accurate measurements using the thin film module and now we can successfully measure coatings as thin as 100 microns. We will definitely continue working with Thermtest for current and future projects.”

“We purchased a TPS 500 instrument for thermal modeling of paving materials, which we recently started looking in to. The instrument was very convenient to use. After some training from the company on determining optimum experimental parameters, it was very easy to program runs into the software. The results were very good, with very little variance. The software allows for rapid testing with minimal human intervention, making the test time predictable and convenient to plan. Most importantly, the customer support is excellent and we feel quite comfortable using the equipment after just a fe w weeks of use.”

“I acquired a portable TLS-100 meter and I am really happy with this unit. In the past, I used another portable thermal resistivity meter, but my decision to work with Thermtest is because of their customer service. They always answer you in a short time and they can solve all the problems that you ask them for. I needed a new testing probe and my custom Thermtest agent did not rest until I had received a new probe in just a couple of days (from Canada to Chile). In summary, the best unit and the best service.”
