The Transient Hot Wire (THW-L1) is widely used for the accurate measurement of thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat capacity of liquids, pastes, and powders.
Best For Liquids, Pastes, and Powders
The THW-L1 following ASTM D7896-19, is widely used for the accurate measurement of thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of liquids
and pastes. This versatility is greatly expanded with the addition of Thermtest’s proprietary Temperature Platform (TP) which is appreciated by academic and commercial users alike.
The Transient Hot-Wire (THW) has been used for the testing of liquids for more than 30 years, making it one of the most published methods for measuring thermal conductivity of liquids available.
Special Phase Change Materials (PCM) with easy to load access. Unique spring design allows sample expansion and contraction, while ensuring sample is in constant contact with THW wire during measurement.
The THW-L1 Ambient density Powder Cell is suitable for basic powder sample testing and ambient pressure.
THW-L1 test cell with screw-type compression system for varying the density of powder samples, can also be used to ensure powders stay in contact with THW wire.
THW-L1 observation sample cell is used for liquids,
powder, and paste testing. The cell has convenient
glass ports for observing what is happening with your sample. Typical applications are phase separation, boiling or particle settling to name a few.
Convenient THW cell mount that can be attached to your THW-L1 for vertical sample loading. Ideal for the Paste/PCM and all Powder Cells.

Depending on the context and on which type of cutting fluid is being considered, these fluids may be referred to as cutting fluid, cutting oil, cutting compound, coolant, or lubricant. The main purposes of these fluids are to keep the object being cut at a stable temperature, maximize the life of the cutting tip, and prevent rust on machine parts and cutters.
