Broach Company, Optimized Process Furnaces, Thermax, Amec Foster Wheeler, Exotherm Corporation, Sigma Thermal, Hetsco Inc., Boustead International Heaters Ltd and Unit Birwelco Group, are some of the leading manufacturers who have been working relentlessly to motivate market growth in the coming years.
For example, a 4-inch diameter tube has approximately the same ratio as a typical 0.5 liter laboratory reactor; while more typical tube or pipe reactor diameters will have considerably higher values, ensuring that temperature control and exotherm management can be handled in a straightforward manner.
For PBz-eda, a broad exotherm with the maximum curing temperature at 217[degrees]C was observed.
The integrated temperature probe provides peak exotherm data in [degrees]C or [degrees]F if needed.
When the extracellular supercooled water freezes, it creates a high temperature exotherm (HTE) and does not injure the plant.
In case studies, heating and cooling processes are documented and typical scenarios, such as the control response during an exotherm, are demonstrated.
"Tricalcium silicates are the most reactive, generating high heat of hydration or exotherm. In contrast, Type IV portland cement contains mostly dicalcium silicates, which are slower reacting than tricalcium silicates and generate less than one third the heat during hydration.
It's generally assumed that once the temperature reaches the baseline to the left of the recrystallization exotherm, the material has solidified and can be ejected.
As with the data in Figure 6, and the subsequent 1st scan DSC data, differences in how the baselines are drawn impact the numerical values of the resulting tabulated data, especially for the cure exotherm. As a result, care must be taken not to over-interpret relatively small differences in thermal data.
The maximum variation between these three temperatures was within 5[degrees]C for the entire temperature range except for the cases with exotherm generated during oxidation of stored carbonaceous compounds.
For DSC, the heat given off during a reaction was called an exotherm while the heat absorbed by material is called an endotherm.
