Isothermal Calorimetry Contract Testing

The TAM (Thermal Activity Monitor) can be used to detect chemical activity that could develop into a thermal runaway during transport or storage of bulk quantities.

Data obtained provides the ability to:

  • Assure safe chemical management in transportation and storage
  • Determine activation energies
  • Determine rate laws
  • Evaluate fermentation rates
  • Determine vapor pressure
  • Measure oxidation or corrosion rates  (oxygen consumption)
  • Quantify shelf life
  • Control product quality

Applications

  • Chemical reactions (batch)
  • Bio-activity (fungi, rotting)
  • Products
  • Isothermal heat production at storage conditions
  • Interaction tests
  • Autocatalytic behavior test
