The oxygen bottle is connected to the filling station via a pressure reduction regulator, which reduces the bottle pressure to 30bar. The pressure can be adjusted.
Open the oxygen bottle valve and observe that the oxygen pressure indication on the filling station rises to 30 bar.
Place the vessel under the filling nozzle and lower the leaver.
Observe that the vessel pressure indication on the filling station dips and then rises slowly to 30 bars. Wait 10 seconds and then raise the leaver. The vessel is now charged and ready to be placed in the calorimeter well.
FILLING & DE-FILLING THE VESSEL
The following method applies to the following oxygen bomb calorimeter systems : CAL2K, E2K, ECO, CAL3K-A, CAL3K-U, and CAL3K-F. The CAL3K-AP uses internal automatic oxygen filling, which does not require the manual oxygen filling station. Please refer to the automatic oxygen filling article on our online help files for more information.Learn More
PERFORMING A CALIBRATION WITH BENZOIC ACID TABLETS
To perform a standard calibration using Benzoic Acid Tablets you will need : A working oxygen bomb calorimeter system connected to a power source, A CAL3K Manual Oxygen Filing Station connected to an oxygen supply (not needed when using the CAL3K-AP Calorimeter), The CAL3K Air Cooler connected to a power source...Learn More
LOAD THE MANUAL VESSEL
A word about ‘VESSEL’ and ‘BOMB’. Traditional the apparatus is called a ‘BOMB CALORIMETER’, because the combustion cylinder looks like a ‘bomb’. The name ‘BOMB’ has stuck, but it is not popular around airports and in shipping. So – we try to use the word ‘VESSEL’ as much as possible.Learn More
