Testing Thermal Conductivity

Hot Disk AB develops and provides equipment for measuring and testing thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity. With our equipment, testing thermal properties is easy, fast and non-destructive.

World-leading Thermal Conductivity Analysers

Test Thermal Conductivity, Thermal Diffusivity and Specific Heat of most material types in a single measurement! This is possible with the absolute Hot Disk method, with no need for repeated calibrations or use of standard samples. This flexible method merely requires one or two pieces of the sample in question to test, each with no more than one flat surface where the sensor can be applied. There is no need for fixed geometries, contact agents or surface modifications.

Test your samples as they are – with a completely non-destructive method!

In-depth information on the method is found here.

Thermal contact resistance and thermal conductivity of oil – new application notes

In our application section we have now added two new notes!

The first deals with thermal contact resistance, using a stack of high conducting copper as an example. With the Hot Disk method it is easy to test the thermal conductivity through a stack and at the same time in the layers of a stack – all from a singel transient. This makes it possible to evaluate contact resistance between layers.

The second case discusses testing the thermal conductivity of liquids. Here an in-depth evaluation of the thermal conductivity of silicone oil is presented. How to perform such tests is explained and hints on how to test other liquids are shared.
