Technical and Scientific Equipment (TSE) present the Accelerating Rate Calorimeter 254, from Netzsch, Germany. This calorimeter provides adiabatic calorimetry data in a safe, controlled laboratory environment. This allows for the determination of the fundamental physical processes involved. The advanced accelerating rate calorimeter system helps engineers and scientists to identify potential hazards and tackle key elements of process optimization and thermal stability. As a highly versatile, miniature chemical reactor, it even allows tests at subambient temperatures.
This accelerating rate calorimeter simultaneously measures temperature and pressure. The sealed pressure system also allows the user to evaluate the effect of different gas atmospheres on the thermal stability of the system.
Gaseous reaction products may be analysed at the end of an experiment to help identify and understand the reaction mechanisms involved.
The Accelerating Rate Calorimeter 254 is designed to model the course of a large-scale reaction on a small scale. A test material is externally heated in a fixed volume until exothermic activity is detected. Holding the sample in an adiabatic environment where no energy is lost, the calorimeter then measures and records the sample temperature and pressure.
A single experiment provides data for use in thermal hazard evaluation, pressure hazard evaluation and thermokinetic analysis.
The accelerating rate calorimeter is also very safe to use, with its batch of system upgrades. The user is protected by a series of safety systems that are completely independent of the control system. Plus, with full control from a computer and being highly automated, this accelerating rate calorimeter features a graphical interface that is easy to become accustomed with and use.
