Calorimetry Testing

Accelerating Rate Calorimetry

The ARC provides thermal hazard evaluation of products, reaction mixtures and intermediates. The experimental results are used for reactor and pilot plant safety analysis. It determines the relationship between time, temperature, and pressure for exothermic reactions. Thermal and pressure hazard parameters related to ARC data include:



• Heat generation rates

• Onset temperature

• Decomposition temperature of the… Continue

The Next Step in Accommodating Major Chemical Accidents by Hans K. Fauske

INTRODUCTION



Infrequent, but major chemical accidents can be attributed to explosive, (i.e., catastrophic vessel failures) as well as non-explosive, (i.e., discharge through relief systems, pipe breaks, etc.) releases of toxic and flammable materials. Explosive releases can result from overpressure or overtemperature. The frequency of loss of pressure control as a result of inadequate vent size designs can be significantly reduced by adopting the methodology recently completed by the… Continue

DUST EXPLOSION TESTING REQUIREMENT UNDER NEW OSHA NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM

Dust explosions are a serious hazard in industries nationwide. They lead to the loss of production, plant/facility destruction and personnel injury or fatality.



In 2005, the US Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board issued a report stating that between 1980 and 2005, at least 281 deadly combustible dust incidents (fires and explosions) occurred in the U.S., killing 119 people and injuring 718 others while extensively damaging or destroying facilities. Congressional hearings… Continue
