Thermal conductivity measuring systems

Hukseflux offers systems for expertly measuring thermal conductivity of plastics, composites, fluids, pastes, and granular materials like soils. THASYS and THISYS systems are specifically designed for measurements on plastics and composites. THASYS offers superior accuracy because the measurement method makes it insensitive to errors due to contact resistance. For on-site measurement of the thermal resistance or h-value thermal insulation of walls and building envelopes we offer TRSYS01. FTN02, MTN02, TNS02 and TPSYS are thermal needle systems for thermal resistivity / conductivity measurement in the field and / or for laboratory analysis.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right instrument for measuring thermal properties?

Hukseflux offers a wide range of products for material characterisation and measurement of thermal conductivity. 

We can offer assistance in choosing the right instrument. But first, you should ask yourself the following questions:

  • what material should be analysed?
  • what are the conditions, for instance concerning temperature and pressure?
  • what specimens are available?
  • are there standards for my application?
  • what level of accuracy do I need?

Hukseflux is a leading manufacturer of thermal conductivity measuring sytems and sensors. We have prepared a guide which may assist you in choosing the proper instrument for measuring thermal properties of your material, whether it is soil, plastics, paints, composites, pastes and fluids. Please find the thermal conductivity selection guide in our online offering of guides, notes and white papers. 

Hukseflux is able to offer highest quality products at an acceptable price level. If we cannot offer you an acceptable solution ourselves, we will tell you who can. Please contact us for further assistance.

Where are the sensors (needle, probe, meter) for measuring thermal conductivity?

Hukseflux sells a range of complete measuring systems including sensors and Measurement and Control Units (MCU). We offer systems and needle type thermal properties sensors for use in the field and for use in laboratory environments.

These thermal properties sensors, TP02 and TP08, are also available as separate probes for use with the user’s own electronics, for instance Campbell Scientific CR1000.

These sensors can be found here. The sensor included in the STPSYS05 non-invasive measuring system can also be purchased as a sensor only (STP05).

Can I get training or a rental system for the thermal conductivity measuring instrument of my choice?

Expert training for system operators
Although in general the systems can be operated by following manuals and standards, we can provide you with expert training. Training vastly improves the level of service to the third party, the efficiency of working with the equipment and reduces the uncertainty of the end result.

Equipment rental
In case you only need a system like FTN02, MTN02 or TRSYS01 for one project, consider renting a system. Rental costs for one month are in the order of 20 % of purchasing costs of a system. Please ask for our rental agreements.

Thermal conductivity measurement

Hukseflux offers sensors, systems and services for measuring thermal conductivity of plastics, composites, fluids, pastes, and granular materials like soils. Special capabilities include the measurement of composites in two directions (fiber and perpendicular to the fiber orientation), and the measurement of thin plastic and metal foil materials.

Hukseflux is the present market leader in the design of needle type thermal conductivity sensors. The main application of these sensors is in measurement of soil thermal conductivity and resistivity. We offer systems and needle type thermal properties sensors for use in the field and for use in laboratory environments. 

Measurands include:

  • thermal conductivity
  • thermal resistivity
  • contact resistance
  • thermal resistance

Materials:  soils, composites, paints, plastics, fluids, powders, pastes, glues, foodstuff, building envelopes
Standardisation: ASTM, IEEE
