TSu | Thermal Screening Unit for Explosion Hazards Liquids and Powders
The fast screening of thermal hazards can be performed with the Thermal Screening Unit (TSu). It uses samples typical from 0.5 to 5 g, will generate both temperature pressure data and hence can be considered a better alternative to classical DSC/DTA methods.
For Effective reaction hazards screening, two critical pieces of data are needed
- The “Onset” Temperature for the reaction – where the exotherm is detected
- The pressure generated by the runaway – key indicator of hazard
The TSu is simple to operate, has a small footprint, and offers the flexibility of operation. In addition with sample cells from 1 ml to 8 ml, a range of materials can be tested including powders.
A low-temperature version is also produced allowing screening starting well below room temperature.
