The Cal3k-S conforms to ASTM D240-09, ASTM D5865-12, ASTM D4809-13, ASTM E711-87, ISO 1928-2009, ISO 18125-2017, GB/T213-2008 and DIN 51900-2 International standards. The Cal3k-S bomb calorimeter uses the Dynamic (Isoperibol) method to measure temperature and calculate the calorific value.
The heart of the system is the quick-locking and sealing bayonet vessel with built-in temperature sensors. This vessel is a dry type vessel, enabling it to be more accurate and faster. Having a fast, accurate dry bomb vessel can only be environmentally friendly. The vessel is completely removable from the bomb well for easy sample preparation, cooling, cleaning and maintenance.
The Cal3k-S interfaces with different devices, including PC (PC Software), Balance, Printer and Laboratory and Information Management Systems (LIMS) and Bluetooth (Wireless). Since the calorimeter only has two input / output ports, the user will need to select which external appliance to plug in.
The Cal3k-S oxygen bomb calorimeter does not come with a Cal3K-2 Air cooler, but can be added for a slight increase in speed. For best results, the calorimeter is designed to run with a single bomb vessel. The economical Cal3k-S system presently comes in one system configuration.
The Cal3k-S Calorimeter has some added features which will make the operation of the oxygen calorimeter a lot easier and user friendly. Every step in the preparation and determination sequence of a sample will be automatically displayed for the operator to follow.
EVENT LOGGING – The Cal3k-S has 80 plus event classifications and can store a maximum of 6800 logged events. A short managerial daily summary is available on the D1 port with the statistical output enabled. The event logs record every step, process, function and operator interaction with the calorimeter.
DEFAULT PARAMETER FIELD – The default parameters can be invoked from a keyboard command. This feature assures the most important parameters are reset to factory standard, ensuring a fully functional calorimeter again.
FAULT AND FIELD TESTING CAPABILITY – The Cal3k-S 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. Each factory test is time stamped and visible in the log file. Should the factory test or vessel test fail, it will stop at the highlight fault. Most of the faults can be easily repaired, others will require an agent.
The vessel records the amount of firings, the max temperature and the date and time. The Cal3k-S records the max starting temperature, the max ambient temperature and date/time. It also records the amount of firings, mass firings, bomb aborts, manual fired and suspect result.
