In chemical process scale-up, understanding temperature change and the associated heat that is accumulated by the reaction are critical to process safety.
Reaction Calorimetry in the Chemical Industry
This webinar focuses on applications and the importance of mixing and reaction calorimetry in the chemical process industry. A series of industrial case studies on the fundamentals of scale-up are presented.
During this presentation on mixing and reaction calorimetry, Ray Machado provides guidance and shares his experience on broad technical topics, including:
- Scale-up of Chemical Reactions
- Mass and Heat Transfer
- Applied Reaction Calorimetry
Reaction calorimetry evaluates the heat discharged from a physical process or chemical reaction under process-like environments and delivers information on the kinetics of the reaction and thermochemistry.
Who Should View This Presentation?
- Chemical Engineers and Chemists in the Chemical, Petrochemical and Pharmaceutical industries as well as Academia.
