    TA Instruments - Waters L.L.C.

    The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) requires the provision of two TAM Air multi-cell calorimeters for studies on the hydration and curing of
    cement, cementitious materials, as well as mortars and concrete. Although there are other types of calorimeters (most are adiabatic or semi-adiabatic), the
    3-cell TAM Air systems for concrete samples and 8-cell systems for cement pastes are unique due to the accuracy of test results, the versatility of the
    sample holder (20 to 125 ml) and the ease of use that make these systems the first choice for Canadian universities and research centres interested in
    research on cement and concrete. Isothermal calorimetry is an appropriate method for determining the hydration heat of Portland cement and the effect of
    various additives and supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) on the hydration and curing of cements. This type of equipment is essential for studying materials intended for producing low-carbon concrete.
