It is important to identify reactive hazards that can occur during processing, storage or transportation of a material. Reactivity hazards can cause an overpressure event, resulting in fire, release of toxic materials or an explosion. A smart testing strategy for reactive hazard characterization is needed to prevent these unwanted consequences from occurring.

This smart testing strategy will consider many factors with a focus on the characterization of runaway reactions and chemical incompatibility. Some factors considered include the lifecycle of the process, the amount of sample of available, the objective of the testing, the cost and schedule of the project, and the chemical information currently available for the process or material to be evaluated. Several examples will be provided to illustrate the application of calorimetry data to process conditions as well as transportation scenarios.

Join us for this smart testing strategy discussion as we review relevant reactive hazard characterization techniques that can be utilized to ensure safer manufacturing processes. During this informative webinar, we discuss:

  • How to select the appropriate calorimeter for testing
  • How to identify reactive chemical hazards
  • Applying calorimetry data to make safer decisions during manufacturing operations and handling of reactive chemicals
  • Reviewing relevant example scenarios for reactive hazards characterization
