The TGA: Macro and Micro
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) first started in the early 20th century, and while the technology has advanced, the basic principles remain the same. With TGA, the rate of change of reactions in the chemical and physical properties of materials as functions of temperature or time is what is used to assess the properties of the sample materials. Most TGA these days…
Thermogravimetrically Testing Biomass
So many factors go into the quality and characterisation of plants and biomass, but many thermogravimetric analyses take so much time. Drying, ashing, and weighing multiple samples takes effort and care just to control for atmospheric effects, much less to actually get precise results that can then be used to analyse the quality and structure of the plants. LECO's TGA801…

Cost Effective Primary Moisture Analysis for Dairy Products
An accurate determination of moisture content in milk products provides important information related to the food quality and safety (texture, taste, microbial stability). Moisture is also a key variable used to calculate a product’s purity, yield, and /or resulting constituent analysis on a dry basis. The TGM800 provides the user with flexible method settings, automation, and hardware capabilities that maximises…
Standard Oven Drying Methods vs. TGM800: Direct Moisture Determination
Jolanda Nortjé, Laboratory Manager of The Southern African Grain Laboratory (SAGL), had a problem. Working with grains meant a lot of thermogravimetric analyses, but standard oven drying methods were incredibly time-consuming. Depending on the flour matrix, oven times could range from 1 hour to 17. Whole grains could take a full 72 hours. When LECO Africa reached out with a…
