DiL - Dilatometer for Thermal Expansion Analysis

Streamlining Dilatometry for Material Development, Quality Control and Failure Analysis
Unparalleled Ease-of-use

Change out furnaces, pushrods, thermocouples and tubes in a matter of seconds.
Dilatometry provides key expansion and shrinkage metrics of materials under defined temperatures. Leveraging C-Therm’s advanced electronics controller, the DiL Series provides unparalleled ease of use in the study of ceramics, glass and metal alloys. Change a pushrod or thermocouple with no tools in seconds, or scale your investment by upgrading to dual-rod and multiple furnace options. And There’s no stress with the LVDT auto-alignment feature - simply place your sample and ramp up the heat.
