One of the major concerns in the chemical industry is to minimize any risk associated with chemical reactivity, especially when it may occur as a runaway reaction.
To prevent any incident relating to process safety, a hazard screening is crucial for all industrial processes, starting from the laboratory trials through to the industrial stage.
UQUIFA combines technical resources and highly trained scientists to detect any potential risk associated to thermal hazards.
Our hazard screening thermochemistry include:
Theoretical data is evaluated to predict any potential run away reaction:
Reagent incompatibility, oxygen balance, calculations based on energy release.
- Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)
DSC is widely used to determine the thermal behaviour of any reagent or reaction mixture during a synthesis process. A wide study by DSC is performed to determine any critical step on any synthetic process.
UQUIFA is currently using Reaction Calorimetry not only for process optimization but also for a better screening of the thermal behavior of any synthesis process.
