Below is a list of products across all our Thermal Hazards and Calorimetry Ranges. To filter this list, click on one of the Product Ranges on the left.
High pressure systems are a niche area for HEL and HP autolab is versatile product range that can be supplied for very simple manual applications or for high specialised requirements that are fully automated. Stirred and jacketed reactors are the most commont but continuous including fixed bed designs are also possible. Our focus is on research scale applications but volumes up to 20L or higher are possible too.Read more
The Phi Tec I for batteries is an adiabatic calorimeter for testing small batteries and battery chemicals is also produced which can provide data on maximum safe temperature to prevent thermal runaway and also, by connecting to a cycler, limits on discharge (current) rate and maximum overcharge (voltage). It works on the principles of the "ARC" device developed by Dow Chemicals more than 30 years ago.
For larger size batteries, see BTC (battery testing calorimeter).Read more
iso-BTC is a stand alone calorimeter for generating thermal management data under isothermal conditions.  It measures the amount of energy generated during discharge while holding the battery temperature constant. The battery pack is integrated with a cycler so that different charging/discharging routines can be programmed.Read more
This is a very popular platform for parallel chemistry for simply and modestly complex applications. It is extremely compact allowing 4 or 8 reactors to be used, each at a separate temperature and independently stirred. Temperatures down to -60C are possible and reactors as small as vials or up to 500ml in volme can be used. Interchangeable use of different sizes and designs of vessels is a key features.Read more
This is a high-end parallel chemistry plaforms where multiple reactor chemistry with lots of functionality for each reactor is needed. Thus, multipe feeds, several probes, distillation etc is easily accommodated. Systems with 4 and 8 parallel reactors are supplied, each vessel at temperatures from -80 to 350C or more and totally independent. Similar agitaion and all other features are independent.Read more
AutoLAB is a stirred reactor platform that can be customised for different applications and is supplied in volumes up to 20L or greater. Temperature control is normally standard but features for control of dosing, pressure, pH etc can also be added and all this is controlled from software. Simpler versions which are totally manual can also be supplied as can multiple reactor versions including flow reactors.Read more
The Simular is a high quality reaction calorimetery that enables safe and reliable scale-up of exothermic reactions. It has the benefit of being extremely easy to use as virtually no knowledge of calorimetery is needed and all calculations are done automatically on-line. Feature-packed and simple to use, the Simular is an indespensible Scale-Up tool which delivers accurate heat-flow data for expert and development chemists alike.
Many reactor designs are offered and highly customised calorimeters can be provided.Read more
The Thermal Screening Unit (TSu) is the first step in reaction hazard assessment. The system offers the full advantages of classical DSC/DTA analysis with the added advantage of gas evolution measurement - critical in identifying potentially explosive situations.Read more
The Phi-TEC I is an adiabatic calorimeter that can be used to determine the heat evolved and pressure developed during an uncontrolled exothermic runaway reaction. It is the modern alternative to the classic "ARC" developed by Dow Chemicals and can be used for thermal hazard studies of liquids and powders, at a scale typically from 0.5 to 5g.
A version for testing small batteries and battery components is also provided which can be used to determine maximum safe temperature and by connecting to a cycler, the maximum discharge rate and maximum safe over voltage. For details of this and larger batteries and packs, see the Battery Testing Calorimeters produced by HEL.Read more
The phi-tec II is top of the range adiabatic calorimeter that can generate thermal runaway data which can be used directly to understand consequences on plant scale. This is enabled by the ability to work under low phi-factor (low thermal inertia condtions) and hence also enables Vent-Sizing using DIERS methodology. It can also serve as a conventional "ARC-type" calorometer for general applications and in this mode uses the exact same test cells as ARC-devices.Read more
This calorimeter enables the maximum safe temperature, maximum discharge rate (current) and maximum overchage (voltage), to be determined, above which thermal runaway explosion can occur, in different sizes and shapes of batteries.
Specially designed for safety testing of large and small scale (Li-ion & similar) batteries and components, the BTC is an evolution on standard "ARC-type" (TM) adiabatic calorimeters.Read more
This is combined hardware and software product that allows heat flow data to be generated from simple jacketed reactors, without any need for calorimetry training. The solution can be added to existing reactors or new ones.
This is a novel solution enabling heat-flow data to be generated in real-time without any prior knowledge of calorimetry.Read more
