Bomb Calorimeter

Bomb Calorimeter


Koehler Instrument Company

Summary of Method

 Heat of combustion is determined in this test method by burning a weighed sample in an oxygen bomb calorimeter under controlled conditions.
The heat of combustion is computed from temperature observations before, during and after combustion with proper allowances for thermochemical and heat transfer corrections. Either isothermal or adiabatic calorimeter jackets can be used.




  • Automatic Calorimeter


The automatic calorimeter is the latest system for determining gross calorific values of liquids and solid fuels. A higher level of automation with extremely simple handling characterizes this device.
In addition to the Isoperibolic measurement procedure, a Dynamic
(reduced-time) mode is also available for the user. Different working
temperatures can be selected for both procedures based on the temperature of the connected water.
