Safety studies are essential during the process design, but how to determine the safety parameters of a chemical process? To determine the value of safety parameters, DSC is often mentioned as a reference tool because it is safer due to the small amount of sample used. The goal of this manuscript is to illustrate the deviation between safety parameters obtained by DSC and the ones obtained by calorimetric reactor. An accident scenario, due to a cooling failure has been carried out to obtain the maximum temperature of the synthesis reaction in an open reaction system.
