TA Instruments acquires Rubotherm
http://www.materialstoday.com/composite-processing/news/ta-instruments-acquires-rubotherm/

TA Instruments, a manufacturer of analytical instruments for thermal analysis, rheology, and microcalorimetry has acquired Rubotherm, which supplies analytical test instruments for thermogravimetric and sorption measurements. The instruments can be used in industrial and academic research laboratories in disciplines that include chemistry, material science and engineering.

Rubotherm’s instruments are based on a patented magnetic suspension balance that allows for contactless measurement of mass changes of samples in a closed reactor under controlled environments with high resolution and accuracy. Applications include gravimetric measurements over a wide temperature range, under vacuum or high pressures, using corrosives, toxics or vapors as reaction atmospheres.

‘Rubotherm brings a great new technology and capability to TA in the form of their patented magnetic suspension balance,’ said Terry Kelly, president of TA Instruments. ‘The application of this technology in TGA opens new markets for TA and further extends our world leading position in thermal analysis.’
