A fast and low-cost dynamic calorimetric method for phase diagram estimation of binary systems
A dynamic calorimetric method based on infrared thermography has been used for the phase diagram estimation of binary systems of fatty organic materials. Its promising results make of this innovative method an interesting asset in applications with time constraints. In order to provide a calorimetry method with satisfactory performance and the lowest time consumption and cost, a test campaign is undergoing. This campaign aims at evaluating the influence of operating conditions on the performances of the method. In that frame, the phase diagrams estimated using a high-end photon detector and a low-cost microbolometer are compared. The assessment of the accuracy and reliability of phase transitions detection is made based on the study of 4 binary systems of fatty acids and fatty alcohols. Differential scanning calorimetry is used for the validation of the experimental phase diagram, and further works are identified in the light of innovative data obtained using the infrared thermography method.
