The development of the C-3500 flame intensity calorimeter was primarily for your 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 widely used in verifying source of heat intensities at different cracking tower stations across the complete oil refinery process, which assures process repeatability. Another important application is used to the flame testing of materials and components under Federal Aviation Regulations. Other applications include power generation, hotbox flame control, jet exhaust output, natural gas energy content, reactor output, furnace intensity and lots of ASTM flame test evaluations.
The Thermistor is a 1.00 – 2.00 inch diameter, rod which is put into direct connection with the heated gasses. The signal generated is directly proportional to the local heat flux; a radial traverse from the source yields a way of measuring the complete power output. The sensor yields D.C. millivolt signals which can be measured with conventional millivolt meters or recorders.
The C-3500-3600 Flame Calorimeter will be inserted using a port straight into the combustion gas stream. The HT-50 High Temperature Heat Flux Transducer continues to be welded and heat sunk to your location 50mm through the tip of your C-3500 Probe(C-3600 has sensor at tip of probe). The location on this sensor is on the very same side because the water discharge port and has been temporarily marked for your benefit. 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 Tamura Thermal Fuse are at 900 or at the stagnation denote the flame front.
The calorimeter includes an inner water feeding tube within the hollow cylindrical probe. Cool water enters through the inner tube and flows out through the annular gap involving the inner tube and inner wall from the outer probe tube. A control system varies the speed of flow water to keep the interior temperature of the probe wall with a constant value. Water coolant must be supplied on the probes rear inlet at the flow rate of 10 – 20 Liters/Minute. Boiling of your cooling water must not be allowed, for high thermal flux rates, the liquid/coolant flow rate has to be increased till the exit water temp is tepid. The average heat flux is calculated by multiplying the C-3500-3600 Calibration Constant by the measured DC micro-voltage.
