Dr. Swati Umbrajkar
Chemical Process Evaluation Laboratory
Dr. Umbrajkar is a Test Engineer in the Chemical Process Evaluation Laboratory. She received her Doctorate from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Her research included the synthesis of metal/metal oxide nanocomposites; analysis of highly energetic materials using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and a number of post analysis techniques to characterize the thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of a test system.
Dr. Umbrajkar consults with clients on a variety of process safety issues including but not limited to high-pressure DSC cell tests, adiabatic calorimetry (ARC and ADC), reaction calorimetry (RC-1), all of which allow for the safe scale-up of batch and semi-batch processes.
She is expert in determining self-acceleration decomposition temperature (SADT) and time to maximum rate (TMR), which are critical parameters associated with the bulk storage of reactive materials. As a Test Engineer and Consultant in the Chemical Process Evaluations Laboratory, she is proficient in the interpretation of data for a wide variety of process safety scenarios. She has authored several articles (Synthesis and Analysis of Highly Energetic Materials).
