This webinar covers the basics of pressure relief system sizing for reactive systems; review of the operating procedure, adiabatic calorimeter test design, how to apply data generated to design the pressure relief systems.  Also covered will be kinetic modeling and we will highlight some short-cuts.


Surendra Singh

Dr. Singh’s experience in thermal sciences includes evaluation of the stability of chemicals and their fire and explosion hazard potential using various instrumental techniques, including calorimetric, minimum ignition energy (MIE) apparatus, 20-liter sphere for dust and gas explosion (KSt value), BAM oven for flammability, and blasting cap testing for shock sensitivity.

Dr. Singh has been involved in incident investigations, where self-heating resulted in thermal runaway or catastrophe. His work has included determining the origin and cause of thermal runaway reactions and/or...Read more
