CAL3K-U Oxygen Bomb Calorimeter System
Laboratory Equipment, lab equipment, Analytical Equipment
The CAL3K-U is the third in the range of innovative oxygen bomb calorimeters from DDS. It is the companion to the CAL3K-AP and CAL3K-A , but with external oxygen filling and without ATC. The new range, from the engineers who designed the CAL2K oxygen bomb calorimeter range, features higher speeds and improved accuracy with a small carbon footprint (uses less resources; no water required, lower power consumption). The external filling removes the pressure component from the CAL3K-U and has resulted in a more robust combustion calorimeter.
The CAL3K-U conforms to ASTM D5865-12, ASTM D4809-13, ISO 1928-2009, and DIN 51900-2 international standards. The CAL3K-U bomb calorimeter works in a DYNAMIC (Isoperibol) method.
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-U calorimeter 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 recommended to use the air cooler for optimum results and faster throughput.
The complete CAL3K-U oxygen bomb calorimeter system contains all the parts and consumables necessary to set up the unit. The installation kits included with the setup of the calorimeter contains consumables 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) from our authorized agents.
The CAL3K-U is the University Edition in the CAL3K range, mainly suited for universities and educational institutions. It is best suited for a production environment which requires robust, fast, and accurate results. The CAL3K-U can be used in the following educational areas :
Combustion heat release, heat transfer, measuring heat, heat loss, temperature equilibrium, heat conduction
Combustion energy of non-gaseous substances
Renewable energy resources, traditional energy sources
Ethanol, waste, plastics, animal feed and products
Combustion energy of our surroundings : wall paint, car seats, ceilings, clothing
Composite material research
Improving animal husbandry, more energy for the buck, alternative energy, oils
Energy absorption or conversion
Food : an alternative method of assuring consistency of consumed substances
