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.
Advanced Oxygen Bomb Calorimeter Systems
A unique waterless system removing the need for water, a stirrer, and thermometers.
The DDS Calorimeters range is completely waterless. The bayonet bomb vessel features linear sensors built into its base.
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.
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!
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.

By using the E2K Bomb Calorimeter I could achieve a wide variety of experimental research, in this way bringing a major contribution to knowledge on the incineration of different materials (mainly solid waste). Possibility of equipment to determine the strength of incineration of different types of material it offers a versatility in use, which makes it superior to other types of equipment which currently exist on the market.

We have been using the E2K Standard System which we purchased in May 2008. We are using the E2K to analyze wood waste samples - hardwood and pine chips, sawdust, etc. We also analyze crosstie samples which is the wood beam that is found on railroad tracks, and analyze approximately 150 samples per month. We run, on average about 150 CV's a month, and the unit is still going strong.

We mainly use the CAL2K Bomb Calorimeter for teaching purposes. Physical Chemistry students are using it for the determination of the heat of combustion. Two compounds are used in the experiments run by the students : Solid (Naphthalene) and Liquid (Benzene). Some of the University academic staff also use the CAL2K from time to time for research applications (for example, food stuff applications). Working on the CAL2K, our students find it easy to use, yet powerful enough. It is the ideal teaching instrument. Our students enjoy talking to CAL2K. As for me, I believe that CAL2K Bomb Calorimeter is the best machine money can buy.
