Safety Evaluation of Processes

 A dedicated team evaluates the safety of each process prior to scale up to the pilot plant. Heat of reaction, build-up of energetic intermediates, gas-formation, thermal stability of reaction mixtures, evaporation residues, wet and dry cakes are evaluated.

Standard in house tests include:

  • Micro-reaction Calorimetry
  • DSC (available at several departments)
  • RC-1 Calorimetry Accelerated Rate Calorimetry
  • Carius tube testing
  • BAM Fallhammer (Shock sensitivity)

Other tests may be performed externally after agreement of the customer.
