The creation of the C-3500 flame intensity calorimeter was primarily to the measurement of combustion chamber heat fluxes in power generating facilities. The thermostat allows the direct and instantaneous power evaluation of combustion chamber gasses for the best stoichiometric fuel/air mix. Additionally, the calorimeter is popular in verifying source of heat intensities at different cracking tower stations across the complete oil refinery process, which assures process repeatability. Another necessary application is applied for the flame testing of materials and components under Federal Aviation Regulations. Other applications include power generation, hotbox flame control, jet exhaust output, gas energy content, reactor output, furnace intensity and lots of ASTM flame test evaluations.

The Water temperature sensor is actually a 1.00 – 2.00 inch diameter, rod that may be placed in direct exposure to the heated gasses. The signal generated is directly proportional towards the local heat flux; a radial traverse of your source yields a way of measuring the whole power output. The sensor yields D.C. millivolt signals that could be measured with conventional millivolt meters or recorders.

The C-3500-3600 Flame Calorimeter is going to be inserted via a port straight into the combustion gas stream. The HT-50 High Temperature Heat Flux Transducer has been welded as well as heat sunk to some location 50mm in the tip in the C-3500 Probe(C-3600 has sensor at tip of probe). The location with this sensor is about the same side since the water discharge port and it has been temporarily marked for your convenience. This location ought to be noted and situated so that the combustion gasses 55dexdpky directly upon it. The highest detected fluxes will occur when the temperature fuse are at 900 or at a stagnation denote the flame front.

The calorimeter includes an inner water feeding tube within the hollow cylindrical probe. Cool water enters throughout the inner tube and flows out from the annular gap involving the inner tube and inner wall in the outer probe tube. A control system varies the rate of flow of water to keep the interior temperature of the probe wall at the constant value. Water coolant needs to be supplied for the probes rear inlet at the flow rate of 10 – 20 Liters/Minute. Boiling of your cooling water must do not be allowed, for quite high thermal flux rates, this type of water/coolant flow rate must be increased till the exit water temp is tepid. The typical heat flux is calculated by multiplying the C-3500-3600 Calibration Constant through the measured DC micro-voltage.
