Fire the Vessel Manually

The following information applies to the : CAL3K-AP , CAL3K-A , CAL3K-U, CAL3K-F


This is a keyboard option and it may be disabled, or password protected.

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):

CAL3K Keyboard Commands - Escape Key | DDS Calorimeters Home
CAL3K Keyboard Commands - F Key | DDS CalorimetersCAL3K Keyboard Commands - I Key | DDS CalorimetersCAL3K Keyboard Commands - R Key | DDS CalorimetersCAL3K Keyboard Commands - E Key | DDS Calorimeters Start of Command
CAL3K Keyboard Commands - Enter Key | DDS Calorimeters Accept Command
CAL3K Keyboard Commands - Y Key | DDS CalorimetersCAL3K Keyboard Commands - E Key | DDS CalorimetersCAL3K Keyboard Commands - S Key | DDS Calorimeters Enter Value
CAL3K Keyboard Commands - Enter Key | DDS Calorimeters Accept Value

If the CAL3K is in the INITIAL phase, then the manual firing will advance it to the MAIN phase.

The result is flagged accordingly.


LIMS FILTER

The LIMS output on the D1 port can be filtered to EXCLUDE certain types of results. the exclusion must be enabled in the SYSTEM DEFINITION (accessed via any other port).

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)

SPIKING OPERATIONS

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.
