DEKRA opens chemical reaction hazard lab in Shanghai

May 23, 2018
International expert organization DEKRA has opened a chemical reaction hazard laboratory in the demonstration area of the national public inspection and testing service platform – Jinan District, Shanghai. This latest chemical reaction hazard (CRH) laboratory adds to DEKRA’s strong global presence with Process Safety related testing facilities on three continents.
The new Shanghai laboratory expansion covers an area of 100 square meters and will have state-of-the-art laboratory technology and extensive specialist capabilities in chemical process hazard assessment and two-phase flow emergency relief system design for runaway reactions.
Combined with cutting-edge testing capabilities, such as Reaction Calorimeter Mettler Toledo RC1, Accelerated Rate Calorimeter (ARC), Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Rapid Screening Device (RSD), and Vent Sizing Package 2 (VSP2™), DEKRA’s new laboratory can clearly define chemical reaction hazard and design measures either to prevent runaway reactions from occurring or to mitigate the consequence of runaway reactions based on the company’s global design capability of two-phase flow emergency relief system.
