As a reaction is scaled from lab to plant, scalability problems may suddenly emerge for various reasons. The causes of thermal incidents are often attributed to:
Incidents can be avoided by determining the relevant data at laboratory scale. Laboratory work is performed under process-like conditions using reaction calorimeters, so that the results can be directly applied to larger-scale operations.
Reaction calorimetry provides a high level of process understanding, so that the necessary procedures can be performed routinely, robustly and to the required standard of quality.
Understand the Risks - Safe Chemical Processes at Scale
When developing manufacturing processes, information about the process, the toxicity and stability of raw materials, intermediates and final product is important. Scientists use this data to establish the ideal reaction procedure and to gain an indepth understanding of the process itself. The Guide to Process Safety discusses the key challenges to consider when designing a safe.
