WEBINAR:THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE

SETARAM is pleased to invite you to our next 2016 Thermal Analysis Webinar.

We hope this information will help you further for your material science research and inspire your imagination.

When:
Tuesday, January 24th, 2017,
4:00PM UTC+1 (Paris, Berlin) – 10:00AM EDT (New York, Boston) in English.
You can ask questions in French as well!

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is defined as the temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperatures. As most of the renewable energy sources (solar, wind, …) are intermittently available, the target of TES is to improve performances of energy systems with a smoother supply and an increased reliability. The three main types of thermal energy storage use sensible heat, latent heat or thermochemical heat. For each TES mode, various types of transitions or reactions are exploited.

The webinar will focus on how the thermal analysis and calorimetric methods can be used to investigate the different TES techniques and to characterize the transitions or reactions of typically used  materials (fatty acids, paraffins, organic substances, inorganic salts, adsorbents, clathrates).

Specific heat capacity Cp can be simply defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a mass unit of material by 1 K at constant temperature and pressure. The determination of this thermophysical property of a material is essential in a large range of application fields, more particularly when the considered material has to be cooled or heated, whether it is during its synthesis, treatment, use, or recycling.

WEBINAR: HEAT CAPACITY MEASUREMENTS BY CALORIMETRIC TECHNIQUES – PART 3 : HEAT CAPACITY OF LIQUIDS

This third and last part of the webinar series on calorimetric measurements of specific heat capacity will focus more particularly on the challenges met with liquids. Continuous or stepwise methods are applicable as long as the effects linked with the vapor-liquid equilibrium are minimized or suppressed, for example with the use of dedicated calorimetric cells. We will provide the experimentalists with helpful tips and applications examples to assist with the heat capacity measurements and calculations.

WEBINAR: THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE MATERIALS: OPTIMIZATION THROUGH SENSIBLE HEAT, LATENT HEAT, THERMAL STABILITY AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY TESTING

Join experts from SETARAM Instrumentation and C-Therm Technologies Ltd. in a free webinar about thermal energy storage! Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is the collection of thermal energy for later use. Strategies for thermal energy storage include solar heat collectors, phase change materials (PCMs), eutectics and reversible chemical reactions. In most TES systems, a higher storage capacity, higher thermal conductivity, and longer cycling stability is desirable. In this webinar, we’ll explore the application of calorimetry to examine the specific heat, heat of fusion, and cycling stability of thermal energy storage materials. We’ll also examine the application of thermal conductivity testing of TES samples, such as PCM composites and heat transfer fluids.

JASIS 2017

Japan Analytical & Scientific Instruments Show

In commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Analytical Instruments Exhibition (JAIMA EXPO organized by JAIMA) and the 35th Anniversary of the Scientific Instruments Show (SIS organized by JSIA), the two shows were unified in 2012 under the new moniker “JASIS (Japan Analytical & Scientific Instruments Show)”.

The abbreviation JASIS includes the nuance of ‘from Japan’ signifying our passion for contributing to the development of science and technology worldwide. “JASIS” was selected from 577 suggestions solicited from the public in 2011 as it could be readily understood internationally.

“Discover the Future” expresses how JASIS, as the leading scientific and analytical instruments show in Asia, showcases Japan’s high level of precision technology and product creation thus cultivating fertile ground for innovation and future business growth.

In order to enhance the global standing of JASIS, by furthering its ability to serve as a global source of information, we are planning concerted activities in Japan, Asia and neighboring countries in order to strengthen cooperation among leading industries and related organizations.
