The Transient Line Source (TLS)

Thermal Conductivity Meter

is an advanced meter capable of testing soils and rock. The TLS follows ASTM D 5334 and IEEE Standard 442-1981.

TLS can use two different probe types: full-space probes that are fully inserted into the sample and half-space probes that are put on top. Both probe types have a rugged design, cover a wide measuring range and can be used for a great variety of sample materials and sizes. An additional field probe for in-situ testing is available.
