TA Instruments Q600



The Q600 provides a true simultaneous measurement of weight change (TGA) and true differential heat flow (DSC) on the same sample from ambient to 1,500 °C. It features a field-proven horizontal dual beam design with automatic beam growth compensation, and the ability to analyze two TGA samples simultaneously. DSC heat flow data is dynamically normalized using the instantaneous sample weight at any given temperature.

sir our ta q600 sdt has a problem.when we sample run instroment show the massage temperature limit exceeded and run terminated.sir how we remove this problem. 

Negative Heat Flow DSC

why the heat flow values are negative for all my curves (different heat rate and particle size)obtained by this instrument, can anyone help me how to correct or subtract the baseline, thanks at advance
