Bomb Calorimeters

The FTT Scientific Oxygen Bomb calorimeter is an Isoperibolic calorimeter for determining gross calorific values of solid and liquid samples.

The sample is burned under standardized conditions where the jacket temperature is kept constant while the vessel (bomb and bucket) temperature rises. The calorific value calculation is based on this temperature rise whilst taking account of residual heat loss. The instrument is supplied with a thermostatically controlled bath, circulator, cooler and 2L pipette.

Benefits:

  • Complies to all major international standards requirements
  • High temperature measurement resolution and repeatability using platinum resistance thermometers
  • User friendly graphical interface and automatic temperature control and firing for ease of use

Applications:

  • Solid and liquid fossil fuels
  • Foodstuffs
  • Biofuel
  • Agricultural feedstock
  • Waste materials and recycling samples
  • Building materials and composites
  • Chemical and pharmaceutical samples

Optional Accessories:

  • Corrosion resistant oxygen bomb (halogen gases)
  • Printer
  • Bucket
  • Benzoic acid, 100g
  • Nickel Chrome crucible and firing wire
  • Analytical balance
  • Firing cotton
