Thermal Conductivity Measurement

SHIEL3D is a thermal conductivity measurement instrument, based on a space technology, that can determine the thermal conductivity of thermal insulation materials in a matter of minutes and in an extended temperature range from -250°C (cryogenic materials) to 1000°C (fire-resistant materials).

Its salient features have been given below:

  • Temperature range: -250°C to +1000°C
  • Measurement range: 1 mW/m-K to 2000 mW/m-K
  • Sample State: Solids & Liquids
  • Suitable for: Aerogels, Ceramics, Composites, Foams, Mineral wools, VIP, Powders etc

Advantages of SHIEL3D:

  • Wide temperature range
  • Suitable for measurements in vacuum
  • Quick measurement times
  • Small size of samples required for measurement
  • Non-destructive testing
  • Flexible and customizable for special applications
