Specification Calorimeter Assembly: Oval, aluminium, 5mm wall thickness, 6mm lid and base 65-50cm diameter 50cm deep Heating with PID control, cooling with refrigerated circulating bath. Built in thermally guarded cycler connectors to minimise heat loss during cycling Pressure measurement capability Operation modes: Isothermal or Adiabatic

Calorimeter Assembly: Functionality Standard Features (1) Two stage insulated calorimeter construction

Temperature range: Temperature measurement: Temperature sensitivity: Temperature accuracy: Detection sensitivity: Pressure measurement: Pressure accuracy:

-30°C* to +120°C Type N thermocouple 0.01°C 0.1°C from 0.01°C/min 0 - 10 bar 0.5% *dependent upon external chiller

Optional Features Options are available from THT to increase the functionality of the BPC

(2) Internal cooling coil (connection to chiller) (3) Internal dry gas purge (preventing ice formation) (4) Ancillary Ports Unit Offers ability to implement options & functionality such as pressure measuring, inertion, video, heat capacity or surface temperature distribution measurement.

(1) Surface Temperature Distribution (Multipoint Option) Ancillary port available to allow THT Multipoint Option (8-24 thermocouple) to be implemented during test to monitor surface temperature variation. (2) Heat Capacity Measurement Cp Option Ancillary port available to allow the THT Heat Capacity Option (CPO) to be used.

Safety Features Electronic Cut Out Software & Hardware cut out features will automate cooling. Specification above subject to change.
