Accelerating Rate Calorimetry

Accelerating Rate Calorimeters help industry operate safely and profitably. As highly versatile, miniature chemical reactors, they measure thermal and pressure properties of exothermic chemical reactions. The resulting information helps engineers and scientists identify potential hazards and address key elements of process safety design including emergency relief systems, effluent handling, process optimization, and thermal stability.

The patented VariPhi® option enables for all Accelerating Rate Calorimeter / Automatic Pressure Tracking Adiabatic Calorimeter systems (ARC®/APTAC®) DSC like performance in the scanning mode: exotherms, endotherms and heat capacity plus pressure data.
