A microprocessor-based instrument for testing materials in the conductivity range of 0.1W/mK to 10W/mK.

A microprocessor-based instrument for testing materials in the conductivity range of 0.1W/mK to 10W/mK.

The FOX 50 Heat Flow Meter is an accurate, easy-to-use instrument for measuring thermal conductivity and provides rapid results in a compact footprint. The instrument is configured with the identical high performance features and proprietary technologies of the larger FOX systems including thin film heat flux transducers, digital thickness measurements, responsive temperature control, plus an integrated contact-resistance correction.

Covering a wide range of temperatures, the FOX 50 is an ideal choice for measurements of medium-conductivity materials such as plastics, ceramics, glasses, composites, concrete and more
