Dr. Ingo Stark, PMIC’s head of research and development, will be attending the ITCC 34/ITES 22 in Wilmington, DE. He will be presenting Development of a Thin-Heater Apparatus and Mathematical Three-Layer Model for Edge Heat Losses for Determination of Thermal Conductivity on 19 June and attending lectures for the entire conference. The paper represents PMIC’s top priority for the research department, a system capable of meeting ASTM C1114-06(2019) Standard Test Method for Steady-State Thermal Transmission Properties by Means of the Thin-Heater Apparatus. ASTM C1114 is considered an appropriate alternative to ASTM C177 for temperatures over 300 °C.
PMIC had a functional C1114 test system for several years. The system was taken out of commission by the lab management after determining that it did not meet PMIC’s high standards for quality. Dr. Stark’s paper represents the culmination of careful theory development, mathematical modeling, system design, and several successful tests using a prototype system.
PMIC plans to make a C1114 test system available for customer contracts by Fall 2019. It is expected to test the thermal conductivity of insulative materials at temperatures up to 1200 °C.
