Thermetrics Dynamic Hotplate System Generates Instantaneous Surface Heat-flux Measurements

The new DHS hotplate is capable of measuring heat loss and heat gain (in Watts/m²)

A traditional sweating guarded hotplate, also known as a “skin model”, is designed to produce accurate, repeatable measurements of the thermal resistance (Rct) and vapor permeability (Ret) of textiles when tested under steady-state conditions.

Traditional hotplates run into problems when used to test the performance of textiles in conditions that are NOT steady-state.
