The introduction 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 best stoichiometric fuel/air mix. Additionally, the calorimeter is commonly used in verifying source of heat intensities at different cracking tower stations down the complete oil refinery process, which assures process repeatability. Another necessary application is applied towards 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 many ASTM flame test evaluations.
The Temperature Sensor is actually a 1.00 – 2.00 inch diameter, rod which is put into direct contact with the heated gasses. The signal generated is directly proportional on the local heat flux; a radial traverse of your source yields a measure of 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 using a port into the combustion gas stream. The HT-50 High Temperature Heat Flux Transducer has become welded as well as heat sunk to your location 50mm from the tip of the C-3500 Probe(C-3600 has sensor at tip of probe). The place of this sensor is about the same side because the water discharge port and has been temporarily marked to save you time. This location needs to be noted and situated to ensure the combustion gasses 55dexdpky directly upon it. The very best detected fluxes will occur if the Thermal Fuse is in 900 or in a stagnation point to the flame front.
The calorimeter includes an inner water feeding tube inside the hollow cylindrical probe. Cool water enters throughout the inner tube and flows out with the annular gap between your inner tube and inner wall of the outer probe tube. A control system varies the speed of flow water to keep the inside temperature in the probe wall at the constant value. Water coolant must be supplied towards the probes rear inlet with a flow rate of 10 – 20 Liters/Minute. Boiling from the cooling water must never be allowed, for high thermal flux rates, this type of water/coolant flow rate should be increased before 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.
