Netzsch Acquires Calorimeter Product Families from TIAX (posted 1/15/09)

The NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing Business Unit recently announced its acquisition of the TIAX accelerating rate calorimeters (ARC®) and automatic pressure tracking adiabatic calorimeters (APTAC™). These products will be merged with NETZSCH’s worldwide Thermal Analysis business. The new product line will be manufactured as part of the current instrument series at NETZSCH Instruments, Inc., which is headquartered in Boston, Mass., and is a subsidiary of NETZSCH-Gerätebau GmbH in Germany.

As versatile, miniature chemical reactors, adiabatic reaction calorimeters measure thermal and pressure properties of exothermic chemical reactions. The resulting information helps engineers and scientists identify potential hazards and address key elements of process safety design, including emergency relief systems, effluent handling, process optimization, and thermal stability.

Industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and energy, as well as government agencies and laboratories, use adiabatic reaction calorimeters to study chemical kinetics, storage and transportation issues, process interruptions, and chemical process design. Adiabatic reaction calorimeters are also used to investigate accidents and develop air bags, rechargeable batteries, spacecraft, and rocket propulsion.
