Firing a vessel manually is done for test purposes, or when the INITIAL FIRING CONDITIONS are not suitable for the sample. Manual firing is not recommended for routine determinations.
Manually firing is used for:
- Testing the firing circuit (Charger) and its connections
- Testing the sample response to a firing. Does it burn? Does it scatter?
- Testing the minimum firing voltage with an oxygen pressure change
Here is how to do it (once you have access to this command):
|Start of Command|
If the CAL3K is in the INITIAL phase, then the manual firing will advance it to the MAIN phase.
The result is flagged accordingly.
MAX AND STATS
The CAL3K keeps the following Maximum and statistical data: Maximum Vessel Start temperature, Date & Time, Maximum Vessel temperature, Date & Time, Maximum Ambient temperature, Date & Time, Maximum Pressure (CAL3K-AP)Learn More
The spiking method is called for when a sample has a very low CV or burns reluctantly. Then a better burning material is added to the sample to help the process. The better burning sample is the spike.Learn More
