Live Webinar: New Developments in Isothermal Microcalorimetry and ARC® Testing Methods

04/12/2019

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 | 10:00 A.M. EST USA | 3:00 P.M. GMT UK

This presentation describes two main types of calorimetric techniques which can be used to carry out performance and safety testing on batteries. These are isothermal calorimetry and adiabatic calorimetry. 

THT’s new Micro Battery Calorimeter is presented along with initial data from a prototype unit.  This device is focused on high sensitivity measurement which is required for coin and button cell samples which produce only milliwatts of heat during use. This is an example of an isothermal calorimeter system.

The second half of the presentation covers battery testing methods for the ARC® adiabatic calorimeter system. The theoretical background of the test method is described and recommended practice for various types of testing are discussed.

This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

• Principles of isothermal calorimetry for batteries
• Introduction to the Micro Battery Calorimeter and initial data
• Theoretical background to ARC® testing
• Recommended ARC® testing practices

A PDF copy of the presentation will be sent to all attendees after the event.
