WHAT IS A BOMB CALORIMETER?


DDS Calorimeters is the new home to the CAL2K and CAL3K Scientific Analytical Oxygen Bomb Calorimeter Systems. DDS and CAL3K offers the new next generation advanced bomb calorimeter system with innovative technology and never before seen advanced features.

The DDS CAL3K range is used to determine the calorific values of liquid and solid samples. The range of CAL3K oxygen bomb calorimeters is manufactured with various applications in mind; coal analysis and oil analysis being the most popular applications. The latest addition to the DDS Scientific range is the CAL3K-U bomb calorimeter, which is optimized for university use and educational institutions. The CAL3K-AP Oxygen Bomb Calorimeter combined the isothermal and adiabatic methods in one system.

CAL3K-A Oxygen Bomb Calorimeter System | DDS Calorimeters

CAL3K-A CALORIMETER

The CAL3K-A is best suited for a production environment with shared oxygen supply (to other users) and robust handling. One external oxygen filling station can service multiple CAL3K Calorimeter Systems. The DDS Calorimeters range can be used to determine the calorific value of solid and liquid combustibles including oil, coke, volatile fuels, biomass, plastic, coal, animal feeds and food stuffs.

WHAT IS BOMB CALORIMETRY?

Combustion Calorimeters measure the heat released from a combustible solid-liquid substance. This is done by weighing a precise measure of the sample substance into a crucible, placing the crucible inside a "bomb" (a sealed metal cylinder called a vessel), filling the vessel with oxygen and igniting the substance.

WATERLESS CALORIMETRY

We, at DDS, have replaced the water with an aluminium sleeve pressed over the stainless steel cylinder and we have placed the temperature sensors in a cavity between the steel cylinder and the sleeve. No water! No stirrer!

APPLICATIONS

The CAL3K can be applied in the coal, petrochemical, medical research, cement, power generation and animal feed research industries (to mention a few). The CAL3K can also be used to analyze coal, coke, oil, foodstuff and biomass products and is applied in power plants, coal mines, metallurgy, the chemical industry, for commercial inspection and scientific research.

COOLING THE CAL3K BOMB VESSEL

After running a sample, once the determination is complete, the CAL3K Oxygen Bomb Vessel can be removed from the calorimeter. Before de-filling or preparing the bomb for the next firing it needs to be cooled – this is done using the CAL3K Air Cooler.

SEAWEED AS AN ALTERNATIVE FUEL

The potential of seaweeds as biomass for energy production can be analysed based in its calorific value, which is measured using an oxygen bomb calorimeter system (See the DDS Calorimeters range of oxygen bomb calorimeters).

FILLING & DE-FILLING THE VESSEL

The following method applies to the following oxygen bomb calorimeter systems : CAL3K, E2K, ECO, CAL3K-A, CAL3K-U, and CAL3K-F. The CAL3K-AP uses internal automatic oxygen filling, which does not require the manual oxygen filling station.
