Heating up to 3000K within one second!
This system measures thermophysical properties by applying current directly to a sample to heat up to higher temperature within one second. Measurable standard properties are electrical resistivity, total emissivity, specific heat capacity, thermal expansion rate and thermal diffusivity.


  • Applying current directly to a sample can make it possible to heat up to more than 2000℃ quickly.
  • Heat-resistant materials used in high temperature of more than 2000℃ can be measured.
  • More than two properties can be measured simultaneously.
    Electrical resistivity, Total emissivity*1, Specific heat capacity, Thermal expansion rate*2, Thermal diffusivity*2
  • Temperatrure controllability: within 1% (at 2800℃)
  • 1Easy installation with power supply 100V/15A and no need of cooling mechanisms like cooling water
  • High energy-saving is expected because measurement can be done in a short time. 
    *1 Hemispherical total emissivity (compliant with JIS-R1693-3) 
    *2 Optional
