Assessing Thermal Stability: The Challenge of Powders

When it comes to solid materials, thermal instability can result not only from self-reaction or molecular fragmentation (decomposition), but also from oxidation – reaction of the solid with atmospheric oxygen. As the median particle size of a product decreases, the surface area to volume ratio increases, and this can accelerate the self-heating process – smoldering/glowing […]

An easy method to design gas/vapor relief system with rupture disk

Tank discharge gas/vapor flow problems are frequently encountered in both practice and design. To perform this type of design calculation, the first step is to identify whether the flow is choked or not through a trial-and-error solution of an equation for adiabatic flow with friction from a reservoir through a pipe. Developing a direct method […]
