Reaction calorimeters are tools for analysing 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 with each instrument presenting the heat production rate directly online. The operator is not required to interpret calibration pulses or estimate unknown baselines because the result is absolute, therefore reducing any margin of error or doubt.
