NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing Acquires Advanced Adiabatic Reaction Calorimeters from TIAX
Product News Jan 29, 2009
The NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing Business Unit recently announced its acquisition of the TIAX Accelerating Rate Calorimeters (ARC®) and Automatic Pressure Tracking Adiabatic Calorimeters (APTAC™). These products will be merged with NETZSCH’s worldwide Thermal Analysis business.
Adiabatic reaction calorimeters help industry to 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.
Industries, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and energy, as well as the government agencies and laboratories use adiabatic reaction calorimeters to study chemical kinetics, storage and transportation issues, process interruptions, and chemical process design. Adiabatic reaction calorimeters are also used to investigate accidents and develop air bags, rechargeable batteries, spacecraft and rocket propulsion.
