Calorimetry (Non-Invasive Measurement)


Where are heat flux sensors used?

gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensors provide calorimetric data instantly and directly. The sensors are designed to measure energy down to 0.03 W/m² (e.g. 0.3 J/m² in 10 seconds). This functionality can be used in research and also integrated into calorimetric devices within the fields of:

Chemical engineering, where calorimetric data is essential for process safety control. The heat release rate of chemical reactions can be measured directly with heat flux sensors.

Material science (e.g. PCM), where engineering of energetic materials like phase change materials for latent heat energy storage relies on precise calorimetric measurements. The same applies for many analytical techniques in materials science like the measurement of heat capacities or the investigation of microstructural changes.

Advantages of gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensors:

  • Customizable dimensions enable the straight-forward integration into complex measurement setups

  • Fast response time increases the productivity of research labs and shortens measurement periods

  • Small size, high sensitivty, and quick response time

  • Non-invasive measurement offering highest precision

  • Easy to integrate with gSKIN® DLOG dataloggers, other relevant equipment, or voltmeter
