iC Safety | Calorimetry Software

What does iC Safety software do?

iC Safety is a crucial tool for evaluating the thermal risk of a chemical reaction at an industrial scale. Designed for use by both non-expert and expert users, iC Safety summarizes key information in an easy-to-understand graphical and tabular format while providing access to detailed safety data needed by expert users.

iC Safety uses well-established algorithms and procedures to automatically convert reaction calorimetry data into safety information. The basic iC Safety information can be complemented with experimental data from other calorimetric measurements, such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), adiabatic calorimetry, or properties of the reaction mixture can complement basic iC Safety information to increase its significance.

How does iC Safety software work?

Following the basic evaluation of experimental data and reaction chemistry, iC Safety calculates the relevant safety parameters for the desired reaction. The results are presented conveniently in a table and the Safety Runaway Graph is created. The TD24 assistant helps the user to integrate data from either differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), accelerating rate calorimeter (ARC), or other calorimetric techniques describing a potential secondary reaction that may occur in case of a cooling failure. In the event of multiple evaluations, all data sets are captured in a convenient table to allow a simple comparison of the result sets. 

What are the computer requirements to run iC Safety?

Reaction calorimeters EasyMax, OptiMax, and RC1 require the Heat Flow option. RC1e also requires RTCal.
 
EasyMax, OptiMax, and RC1mx require iControl 6.0 or higher. iControl versions 5.3 or 5.6 are required for RC1e.

Do I need iControl in order to use iC Safety?

Yes, iC Safety is a module within the iControl PC software. You must have a licensed copy of iControl and an HFCal-enabled reactor system in order to unlock the extra capabilities provided by iC Safety.
