Sophisticated instruments have been developed to accuratelly reproduce industrial processes at bench scale. The most popular are reaction calorimeters that give key information about the thermal potential of processes carried out according the temperature, stiring, dosing and pressure programming of the real processes.

Reaction calorimeters are routine instruments in the development phase of a process in most of the big chemical companies. However, their price and, most specially, the special skill that is required to the personnel, made them a rare piece in small and medium industries. Is it possible to estimate the thermal hazard of a chemical synthesis without this kind of instruments? Perhaps a rought, primary estimation is possible. HarsNet will try to give a response.
