Abstract:

This report describes the thermogravimetric system recently established at MRL to study the kinetics of reactions between solids and their gaseous environments at elevated temperatures. Changes in the weight of heated samples, due to reactions such as high-temperature oxidation of metals, are measured by a sensitive, large-capacity electrobalance. The sources of uncertainties in the measurement of both weight and temperature have been considered, and experimental techniques which have been introduced to minimize these uncertainties are discussed.
