Features & Benefits

Features and Benefits


Phi-TEC I Design

  • 7-11mL High-pressure vessels in Glass, Stainless Steel or Hastelloy
  • Phi-Factor ~1.5 (with 0.5 - 5g typical sample)
  • Custom Cells available
  • Battery-Testing (up to 18650 batteries and components)
  • Magnetic Stirring - software controlled
  • Direct temperature measurement
  • Easy to use, safe and robust
  • Compact, fits into any standard fume hood
  • Safety-tested using Nitro-Toluene

Adiabatic Calibration

Auto-Calibration that takes only 30min and can be performed before each experiment. Auto-Calibration keeps device always in perfect calibration and also adapts automatically to different sizes and shapes of test cells and batteries or other samples.

Testing Details

  • Two Key Tests
    • Rapid Screening - DSC analogue, but with pressure trace.
    • Heat-Wait-Search - Classic Dow "ARC" Test.

Key Data

  • Exotherm "Onset" Temperature (0.2&deg C/min or better)
  • Heat Release (Temperature Rise)
  • Pressure increase
  • Global Reaction Kinetics
  • Time to Maximum Rate (TMR)
  • SADT (for storage and transportation studies)
