HIGH-PRECISION DILATOMETERS

Pushrod dilatometry is a method for characterizing dimensional changes of a material as a function of temperature. The measurement may be performed across a temperature range (e.g. from 800° to 1,600°C), or a specific controlled temperature program to mimic industrial processes, firing regimes, or a material’s operating environment. The coefficient of thermal expansion (α) is defined as the degree of expansion (ΔL) divided by the change in temperature (ΔT).
