Chemical Reaction Hazard Tools: Understanding Reaction Calorimetry

Reaction Calorimetry is a powerful tool that can be used to simulate a wide variety of synthesis processes and plant conditions. At its core, it is a reaction vessel in which moderate quantities of materials or reagents can be studied for reaction conditions, monitored with high accuracy measurements to quantify heat of reactions, maximum reaction rates, reagent accumulation, and further useful information.

The data can be utilised for safe process design and scale-up, optimisation of the reaction, and to study worst case scenarios of plant deviations.

In this webinar we will guide you through Reaction Calorimetry and associated techniques and discuss how you can obtain valuable and scalable data with respect to various reaction conditions.

What you’ll learn:

  • How and why chemical reactions and material reactivity are critical elements of safe processing, and how exothermic reactions pose the biggest risk.
  • How to identify, assess, and characterise both intended and, more importantly, unintended exothermic reactions to ensure the safe scale-up and operation of a chemical process.
  • Benefits of partnering with specialists at Sigma-HSE to create bespoke/customised Chemical Reaction Hazards testing conditions to match your process operation and prove your safety case.

This webinar is best for:

  • Technical Manager
  • HSE/EHS Manager
  • Chemical Engineer
  • Process Engineer
  • Development/Process Chemist
