The use of a single-pan differential thermal analyzer (DTA) unit is proposed in this paper based on the experimental results and justified from the theory for DTA units. Such a design would simplify the construction and operation of DTA units. A basic requirement for this kind of design is the accurate measurement of sample temperature. It would also make the design of simultaneous TGA (thermogravimetry analyzer)-DTA units more robust and less likely to mechanical breakage. © 1995.
