Thermogravimetric analysis ([T.SUB.G]A) was performed through a Mettler [T.sub.50%] thermobalance
under an air flow of 150 mL/min in a temperature interval between 30[degrees]C and 700[degrees]C, at a heating rate of 10[degrees]C/min.
Broiler water balance and thermobalance
during thermoneutral and high ambient temperature exposure.
Flour moisture was measured in 2 g of flour sample in a thermobalance
moisture analyzer (OHAUS, MB 200) at 95[degrees]C per 60 min, according to the AOAC methods (1995).
Moisture content of powdered egg can be determined by gravimetric difference after oven-drying at 105[degrees]C (Association of Official Analytical Chemists [AOAC], 2016), or by moisture analyzer (thermobalance
The record of the weight gain curves as a function of exposure time was done with a thermobalance
CI MK2-M5 Head LM 2-01 and the LabWeigh software.
DSC curves were obtained using a DSC 7020 cell (Exstar, Japan), and the TG/DTG curves were taken with a TG/DTA 7020 thermobalance
(Exstar, Japan) under a nitrogen flow and heating rate of 10[degrees]C [min.sup.-1].
TGA analyses were done in a thermobalance
TA Instruments TGA Q500 equipped with an EGA oven, using 10[degrees]C/min as heating rate.
The thermal behaviors were investigated using a Shimadzu [T.sub.G]A-50 thermobalance
with a heating rate of 10[degrees]C/min under [N.sub.2] flow.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) was carried out using Mettler thermobalance
TG-50 in a Mettler TA-4000 System, with temperature ranging from 30[degrees]C to 1000[degrees]C with interval of 10[degrees]C/min under oxygen gas with flow rate of 50 mL/min.
The thermogravimetric measurements were performed using a "SETSYS" (Setaram Instrumentation) thermobalance
. The experimental conditions were as follows: inert atmosphere (He), temperature range between 20 and 1400[degrees]C, heating rate about 20[degrees]C/min, and sample mass around 20 mg.
Tests were performed with a Mettler-Toledo Thermobalance
DSC-1 associated with IR (Infra Red) spectrometer.
