We measured the SCUBA fluxes of a sample of Seyfert 1, Seyfert 2, starburst and normal disc galaxies, taken from the Extended 12 Micron Galaxy Sample. From these data, we determine the entire dust content and temperature distribution of galaxies of different classes through a Planckian inversion technique.
