CTL38 - Self Accelerating Decomposition (SADT) UN Test H4 Apparatus

For determination of the minimum constant air temperature at which thermally unstable substances undergo exothermic decomposition.

Benefits

  • Efficient flask holder / stand with minimal thermal influence on test
  • Custom made vessel plug / head – fast set-up
  • Data acquisition system provides fast and early indication of any exothermic onset
  • Debris collection fine wire mesh basket cage system – enables management and containment in the event of any flask breakages
  • USB Connectivity (computer option available)

SADT & UN Test Apparatus

This method determines the minimum constant air environment temperature at which thermally unstable substances undergo exothermic decomposition at conditions representative of the substance when packaged for transport. The method can be used for the determination of the SADT of a substance in its packaging, including IBC’s and small tanks (up to 2 m3).

Functional Specification & Deliverables

  • 0-150 °C temperature range (110 - 120 / 220 - 240 V a.c oven typically 1.5 kW)
  • Efficient flask holder / stand with minimal thermal influence on test
  • Custom made vessel plug / head – fast set-up
  • Data acquisition system provides fast and early indication of any exothermic onset
  • Debris collection fine wire mesh basket cage system – enables management and containment in the event of any flask breakages
  • USB Connectivity (computer option available)

Optional Extras

  • Mesh baskets, support stands, thermocouples
  • Bespoke software changes to cater for additional functions

The following is available at an additional cost:

  • PC, LCD monitor and miscellaneous cables & accessories
