TSS-ARKS - CISP(R) The analog-free software for thermal hazard assessment

 Thermal Safety Series-Advanced Reaction Kinetics Simulation (TSS-ARKS) software:
main ideas, purpose and features


     TSS-ARKS disk ed


At CISP, we strongly believe that the future of the chemical process' and products' safety science relies more on digitally - based methods. To achieve this transformation, we associate methods of calorimetric  experiments, kinetics evaluation and process simulation with the appropriate software.  To support you through all phases of your projects CISP devises a synergistic concept which includes the analog-free methods, TSS-ARKS software and consulting services.
The efficiency of TSS-ARKS is demonstrated, in particular, by the numerous publications of the TSS and TSS-ARKS Users: pdfsmall_1.gif
TSS-ARKS software replaces the well-known TSS series; it inherits all the best features of TSS and offers  new capabilities.

Major features of the System:

  • The state-of-the-art methods for interpretation and analysis of data from various calorimetric techniques
    including thermal analysisadiabatic and reaction calorimetry (Newsletters # 9, 11, 12, 14, 20);
  • Powerful unique methods for evaluation of complex reaction kinetics (Newsletters # 6, 7, 17);
  • The state-of-the-art simulation-based methodology for predicting and preventing runaway accidents involving chemical products and processes (Newsletters # 2, 5, 8, 10, 13, 19);
  • All the methods are supported by user-friendly TSS-ARKS software allowing a researcher to concentrate on the problem at hand rather than on challenges related to ways of solving problems;
  • TSS-ARKS software is supported by carefully elaborated manuals and video-tutorials that help a user to master software;
  • TSS-ARKS components are interlinked to each other providing a unified analog-free system;
  • Each TSS-ARKS component has a unique set of features that distinguishes it from other commercial offerings. TSS-ARKS components can be used successfully as standalone programs;
  • TSS-ARKS gives general solution of the crucial challenge of chemical engineering in general and hazard assessment in particular – the scale-up problem;
  • TSS-ARKS applications provide full compatibility with the data and projects created by their predecessors from the TSS series.
TSS-ARKS is addressed to:  
  • R&D Centers of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Companies;
  • R&D Centers of Manufacturers and Users of energetic materials;
  • R&D Centers of Manufacturers and Users of rechargeable batteries;
  • Physical-chemical laboratories;
  • R&D Centers and laboratories involved in hazard assessment of dangerous goods (UN TDG, IMO,
    etc,) and in classification of chemicals (UN GHS, CLP, etc,);
  • Consulting Firms dealing with Chemical Processes;
  • Chemical Engineering Departments of Universities. 

What to use? Just select the TSS-ARKS subset you need most

​​​​​​TSS-ARKS consists of more than 12 interlinked applications but it doesn't mean that the whole ​system is required. You can choose the most appropriate subset depending on your area of activity and experimental technique you use in the lab.

CISP offers several typical TSS-ARKS subsets adjusted as to the instruments available as to the final aim of your studies. See the Solutions  page for the detailed description

Trainings, seminars and web-seminars

​​​​​​CISP provides all its Customers with the initial and advanced training courses. Depending on the composition of the subset initial training can be optional or obligatory. A Customer can also order the advanced training for raising of users' qualification. Training courses are provided on-site or/and via on-line Internet meetings.

From time to time CISP organizes the TSS-ARKS seminars to inform the users about new methods developed by CISP experts and about new features of software, and to allow the users to meet and share their experience. Such the seminars are held both as in "in-person" and in "virtual on-line" mode.

Note: trainings and seminars can be conducted only by CISP experts or the authorized CISP representatives.

To keep our visitors, users and colleagues update and to share our ideas we issue from time to time the CISP Newsletters and provide the lists of our publications and presentations on the conferences; both the Newsletters and publications can also be found on our Researchgate page
