DEKRA Process Safety

lab testing services

We operate GLP compliant dust explosion, chemical reaction hazard, thermal stability and regulatory test labs

Our CPE teams provide laboratory test-data, with expert Consultancy, for the identification and assessment of exothermic reaction hazards, thermal stability screening, reaction and adiabatic calorimetry, runaway simulation, engineering solutions and emergency vent design (DIERS). Covered in more detail in the following pages, just some of the tests we can offer are intemised. If your test is not showing in this list, please contact us as we may be able to help.

Testing Services also available from DEKRA:


Industrial explosions occur too frequently causing loss of life, injury, damage, loss of production, litigation and adverse publicity.

Chemical Reaction Hazards

Exothermic chemical reactions carry with them an inherent risk of loss of control with potentially devastating effects on life and the environment.

Thermal Instability

Crucial to safer material handling is a thorough understanding of maximum safe processing and storage temperatures, thus avoiding hazardous conditions and uncontrolled initiation of exothermic activity.

Energetic Materials Assessment

Testing and consulting for propellants, pyrotechnics and explosives including Validata, SAPH & CHARP.


Fire testing is used to develop the data on the flammability performance of textiles, plastics, and other materials.


DEKRA's services now include the complete range of physico-chemical tests required for European regulatory purposes. Through our colleagues at DEKRA, we can also provide expert testing for:

  • Physico-Chemical Analysis
  • Toxicology
  • Eco-toxicology
  • Dossier Preparation / Project Management
