Soot were extracted from DPF and introduced in the thermobalance. The TGA procedure allows to track the soot mass evolution during a Temperature-Programmed Oxidation test (TPO) in order to determine soot reactivity as function of temperature.
The TG/DTG curves were obtained in a thermobalance model TGA 50 (Shimadzu) using a temperature range of 25-900 [degrees]C in a platinum sample holder with ~3 mg of sample, under dynamic nitrogen atmosphere (50 [ml.min.sup.-1]) and heating rate of 10 [degrees]C.[min.sup.-1].
About 10 mg of unimpregnated sample was placed on a thermobalance at a heating rate of 50[degrees]C /min up to 600[degrees]C at a steady nitrogen flow of 50 mL/min.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is carried out with a thermobalance (Mettler TGA/SDTA 851) by recording the weight loss as a function of temperature.
A thermobalance automatically heated at a set heating rate and recorded the signals of change of combustion curves.
Furthermore for broiler chickens to perform at their best capacity they need to maintain a thermobalance with their internal and external environment.
The system's thermobalance covers a full 35 gram measuring range while its sensitive DSC capability enables one to accurately measure heat flow and characterize energetic behaviors.
Exceeding of collector's outer surface temperature over ambient temperature should be taken for established thermobalance.
The thermal stability of PCL and PHBV microparticles was investigated with a TGA209 thermobalance (Netzsch-Geratebau, Selb, Germany) using 5 mg of sample into platinum crucibles.
The heating curves (TG and DTA) were carried out in a Netzsch TG 209C thermobalance with a sample mass of 10 mg over the temperature range of 20-1000[degrees]C using a heating rate of 10[degrees]C.
