RR145 - Reaction Inhibition in the Control of Exothermic Runaway

The principal element of the research programme has been the design and running of a series of pilot scale trials at HSL into the inhibition of an uncontrolled styrene monomer polymerisation with associated laboratory and analytical work to plan the tests safely. The research has drawn upon laboratory work conducted by Chilworth Technology and mixing research sponsored by Chilworth. This report summarises the work conducted during the project, together with significant background information and then puts the results into an industrial context.
