Reaction calorimeters are tools for analyzing chemical processes. The major output from experiments in a reaction calorimeter is the heat production rate, associated with the processes inside the reactor. The heat production curve is then the base for the calculations of a number of important parameters. The technique to measure and the way to calculate the heat production rate is of utmost importance for the reliability of all related calculations and considerations.
ChemiSens manufactures “True Heat Flow” reaction calorimeters that are pre-calibrated, which means that each instrument presents the heat production rate directly online. The result is absolute; it is never influenced by any doubt from the operator as to how to interpret calibration pulses or how to estimate unknown baselines.
