Software sub-set for adiabatic calorimetry

Adiabatic calorimetry of various kinds (ARC, VSP, DEWAR, etc.) is the method that had been designed for study of reaction hazards. Therefore this TSS-ARKS subset is adjusted for a laboratory which primary interest is in reaction hazard assessment.


 The subset includes ARKS AC, ARKS FK and/or CK, and the pack consisting of ATKS TE, ARKS HA, ConvEx and BST.

 ARSK AC  is the unique data processing program capable of handling temperature and pressure data from various adiabatic instruments (ARC, VSP, Phi-Tec I and II, DEWAR and others). The auxiliary DConv Data File Converter program allows simple method for data conversion so that ADaExpert can be used in combination with any type of adiabatic calorimeter. The program package offers the unique set of advanced data analysis methods including vent sizing.

 ARKS FK  and/or ARKS CK are used for kinetics evaluation. The choice depends on the laboratory profile. If the primary interest is in hazard assessment of reactive chemicals (especially solids) then ARKS FK would be the right choice. If the laboratory is involved in process safety studies then we would recommend considering DesK as a candidate. The pair ARKS FK + CK covers a wide range of problems and therefore provides maximal flexibility.

ARKS FK is designed for creation of conversion-based complex multi-stage formal models. ARKS CK allows creation of more habitual concentration-based models of complex reactions.

The last group of programs serves for assessment of reaction hazards.

ARKS TE and ConvEx are for simulation of thermal explosions in solids and liquids.

ARKS HA provides easy and fast assessment of reactive hazards by determination of hazard indicators of chemicals.

BST package is intended for design of emergency relief systems.

The appropriate composition of the last group also depends on the laboratory profile. For those who mostly involved in determination of hazardous characteristics of reactive chemicals the triplet ARKS HA/TE/ConvEx can be recommended whereas for specialists in ERS design ARKS AC and BST would be of primary interest.
