- The CAL3K-AP conforms to ASTM D240-09, ASTM D5865-127, ASTM D4809-13, ASTM E711-87, ISO 1928-2009, ISO 18125-2017, GB/T213-2008 and DIN 51900-2 international standards. The CAL3K bomb calorimeter uses the dynamic, isothermal, adiabatic or isobatic calorimetry methods to measure temperature readings.
- The traditional CAL2K-4 bomb vessel has been replaced with a self-locking and sealing bayonet vessel with built-in temperature sensors. The vessel is completely removable for easy sample management, cooling, cleaning and maintenance.
- The CAL3K interfaces with different devices, including PC ( PC Software ), Balance, Printer and Bluetooth (Wireless). The unit also integrates fully with software based laboratory and information management systems (LIMS).
- The oxygen bomb calorimeter and air cooler are operated together for effective routine sample determination, using 2 or more bomb vessels . It is imperative to use the air cooler for optimum results and faster throughput because of the CAL3K-AP and cooler interaction.
The complete CAL3K-AP oxygen bomb calorimeter system contains all the parts and consumables necessary to set up the unit. The installation kits included with the original purchase contains consumable for approximately 200 samples, depending on the type of sample being analyzed (coal analysis, animal feed analysis). Other samples like oil, might use more consumables as they are corrosive and could cause wear and tear. Additional consumables can be purchased separately (and in bulk quantities) for our authorized agents.
The CAL3K Calorimeter has some added features which will make the operation of the oxygen calorimeter a lot easier and user friendly. Every step in the determination of the calorific value of the sample has a help screen attached and operator prompts assist with step-by-step instructions to operate the calorimeter.
EVENT LOGGING - The CAL3K-AP has 63 event classifications and can store a maximum of 6800 logged events.
DEFAULT PARAMETER FIELDS - The CAL3K-A has one1 default parameter field for each mode and one experimental default mode for the user. All fields are for different operation and operating modes. The experimental mode can be changed via the PC interface. Note that the each operating mode requires a calibration.
FAULT AND FIELD TESTING CAPABILITY - The CAL3K-AP and vessel each have a factory and a field test built in. The field test allows the operator/user to test the functionality without any instruments or special connections.
