Test the potential for runaway exothermic chemical reactions
at your facility

Chemical reaction hazards testing aims to prevent potential accidents and inadvertent incidents caused by industrial related chemical reactions. Comprehensive testing aims to restrict and/or exclude potentially dangerous materials or energy that may result in catastrophe. Sigma-HSE’s chemical reaction hazards testing lab offers comprehensive standard and custom testing packages to aid you in identifying chemical reaction hazards and other related risks.

Discover our range of tests

We offer a wide range of chemical reaction hazard testing services to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 standards, globally. Discover our range of tests below and get in touch for a free consultation today.

Small Scale Screening

Range of tests for thermal screening including DSC, ARC, Carius Tube and VSP.

Heat Flow Calorimetry

Heat Flow Calorimetry provides reaction information early in the development process to improve the chemical workflow. This data can be used to characterise, optimise and understand process parameters in a controlled, accurate and reproducible environment.

Reaction Calorimetry

The Reaction Calorimeter is designed for measuring heat profiles, chemical conversions and heat transfer under process conditions. The Reaction Calorimeter allows chemical and safety engineers to optimise processes under safe conditions while determining critical process parameters to reduce the risk of failures at scale.

Adiabatic Calorimetry (VSP2)

The adiabatic calorimeter test provides data for relief system design, safe scale-up of chemical processes, and changes to process ingredients. Safe process design requires knowledge of chemical reaction rates, character and energy release; all of which can be obtained from a low phi-factor adiabatic calorimeter.
