Applies To : bomb; calirometer; calorific value; isoperibol bomb calorimeter; microprocessor
Solid mineral fuels - Determining gross calorific value by bomb calorimetric method, and calculation of net CV.
Annexure B : Isoperibol and Static Jacket Bomb Calorimeter
Below is and extract from the International Standard :
The Characteristic feature of isoperibol calorimeters is the isothermal jacket. The temperature of the surrounding thermostat is kept constant throughout the experiment by active control. The static jacket calorimeter has a thermal capacity such that, even without active control, its temperature remains nearly constant during measurements. In both cases there is a flow of heat between the calorimeter itself and the thermostat. Calorimeters surrounded by thermally insulating material behave largely as static jacket calorimeters.
Determining the gross calorific value of solid and liquid fuels using the Isoperibol or static-jacket calorimeter, and calculation of net CV.
Below is an extract from the International Standard :
The calorimeter bomb prepared as specified in DIN51900-1 is placed in a calorimeter can, which is filled with water and surrounded by an isoperibol or static jacket insulating jacket. After temperature has equalized and the fore period has elapsed, the fuel sample is fired and the increase in temperature is recorded. Recording is terminated at the end of the after period. The gross calorific value of the sample material is calculated from the corrected temeprature rise and the effective heat capacity of the calorimeter.
Note : The specified method is using an isoperibol or static jacket calorimeter covers all procedures in which the temperature of the calorimeter can differ from that of the jacket. As a result of the temperature difference, it is necessary to correct the rise in temperature for the heat exchange (1).

Heat of Combustion of Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels by Bomb Calorimeter (Precision Method).
This test method covers the determination of the heat of combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. It is designed specifically for use with aviation turbine fuels when the permissible difference between duplicate determinations is of the order of 0.2 %. It can be used for a wide range of volatile and nonvolatile materials where slightly greater differences in precision can be tolerated.
Applies to : aviation turbine fuels; bomb calorimeter; heat of combustion; hydrocarbon fuels
Standard Practice for Safe Use of Oxygen Combustion Bombs.
This practice covers methods for judging the soundness of new and used oxygen combustion bombs, and describes the precautions to be observed in oxygen bomb combustion methods. This practice is applicable to all procedures in which samples are completely oxidized by combustion in a metal bomb containing oxygen under pressure. Hydrostatic test and proof test shall be performed. The following precautions shall be observed in all oxygen bomb combustion methods: sample weight; oxygen filling system; ignition system; and safety barricade.
This practice covers methods for judging the soundness of new and used oxygen combustion bombs, and describes the precautions to be observed in oxygen bomb combustion methods.
This practice is applicable to all procedures in which samples are completely oxidized by combustion in a metal bomb containing oxygen under pressure. Where there is conflict with specific precautions in individual ASTM methods, the latter shall take precedence.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalent of inch-pound units may be approximate.
Applies to : bombs; combustion; oxygen
