Kinetic research with employment of thermal analysis methods comprises a complicated multi-stage procedure. The full performance is impossible to be achieved without automation of all the stages with regard to their interconnections. Development of the automated system for kinetic research (ASKR) in thermal analysis is the solution to this problem.

ASKR is described as based on the complex of thermoanalytical devices of the ‘SETARAM’ company. The system allows reducing the time of measurements and ensures high quality and reliable results.

The structure, purpose and potentialities of ASKR are considered, methodological questions of kinetic experiments and kinetic data analysis, organisation of software are also discussed in the paper.


automated system for kinetic research 


Kinetische Untersuchungen unter Anwendung thermoanalytischer Methoden umfassen ein kompliziertes, mehrstufiges Vorgehen, deren vollständige Durch-führung ohne Automatisierung aller Stufen in Beziehung auf deren Wechselwirkungen unmöglich ist. Die Entwicklung eines automatisierten Systemes für kinetische Untersuchungen (ASKR) in der Thermoanalyse ist die Lösung des Problemes.

ASKR basiert auf einem Komplex thermoanalytischer Geräte der “SETARAM” Company. Dieses System erlaubt eine Herabsetzung der Messungszeit und sichert qualitativ hochwertige und zuverlässige Ergebnisse.

Aufbau, Zweck und Möglichkeiten von ASKR werden bedacht und es werden auch method-ische Fragen kinetischer Experimente und der Analyse kinetischer Daten sowie Softwareor-ganisation besprochen.
