The Advanced Reactive System Screening Tool (ARSST) is a batch reaction used to identify potential safety hazards. It consists of a well instrumented batch reaction that is heated in such a manor so as to raise the temperature at a uniform rate. It is primarily used for liquid phase reactions.
For more information, visit www.ARSST.com
A batch reactor is heated by an external heater at a rate of 0.2 C/min. Plot T vs. t and find the ignition temperature.
