Phi-TEC II | Adiabatic Calorimeter for Vent Sizing & Thermal Runaway Testing
The Phi-TEC II is a low thermal inertia (low phi-factor) adiabatic calorimeter with the capability of producing the conditions in large-scale chemical reactors. This key to this is the low operation at low phi-factor (see below) which is not possible in standard “ARC-type” adiabatic calorimeters but this capability opens up many new applications.
The system can run samples in the range 1 to 100ml in volume, with the small size being used for screening of hazards (similar to conventional “ARC” testing) and the larger volume for the low phi-factor type tests. All samples can be stirred with magnetic flea as the system is fitted with this feature but in addition, overhead mechanical agitation is also possible where higher viscosity or multiphase samples is a concern. Standard Pre-programmed Tests make runs quick and efficient and simple standard test cells keep consumable costs to a minimum.
