Titiration Indicator – Methyl orange, methyl red, or methyl purple for indicating the end point when titrating the acid asstm during combustion.

In particular, lignite and sub-bituminous rank coal samples may experience asym oxidation effects than samples of higher rank coals. Purity of Reagents – Use reagent grade chemicals conforming to the specification of the Committee on Analytical Reagents of the American Chemical Society in all tests. Its size shall be such that the bomb is completely immersed in water during determination. Suitable reducing valves and adapters for 3- to 4-MPa to psig discharge pressure can be obtained from commercial sources of compressed gas equipment.

The traceability of the heat of combustion of the benzoic acid calibrant in addition to meeting the adtm criteria. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Mechanical supports for the calorimeter vessel shall be of low thermal conductivity.

Nickel-chromium alloy Chrome C alloy, cotton thread, or iron wire are acceptable. Heat of Formation – the change in heat content resulting from the formation of asrm mole of a substance from its elements at constant pressure.

Use the same type and length or mass of ignition fuse for calorific value determinations as used for standardization. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of d565 limitations prior to use.

ASTM D5865-12 – International Standards

Heat Capacity – the energy required to raise the temperature of the calorimeter one arbitrary unit. The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.


Assessing aetm valid working range of the calorimeter, as outlined in The bomb shall be designed so that all liquid combustion products can be completely recovered by washing the inner surfaces.

Calorimeter Vessel – Made of metal with a tarnish-resistant coating, with all outer surfaces highly polished.

Standard – Standard Test Method for Gross Calorific Value of Coal and Coke ASTM D –

Gross Calorific Value gross heat of combustion at constant volumeQv gross – the heat produced by complete combustion of a substance at constant volume with all water formed condensed to a liquid. Base metal alloy crucibles are acceptable, if after three preliminary firings, the weight does not change by more than 0. Adiabatic Calorimeter – a calorimeter that operates in the adiabatic mode and may or may not use a microprocessor.

A stirrer shall be provided for uniform mixing of the water. The gross calorific value can be used to compute the total calorific content of the quantity of coal or coke represented by the sample for payment purposes.

The first and most obvious is the temperature sensing probe itself. The following precautions are recommended for safe calorimeter operation. A comparable amount of the analysis sample is burned under the same conditions in the calorimeter.

Platinum or palladium wire, aetm. To minimize convection, the sides, top and bottom of the calorimeter vessel shall not be more than 10mm from the inner surface of the jacket. Thermometers – Platinum resistance or thermistor thermometers – shall be capable of measuring to the nearest d55865.

ASTM D5865 – 13

Valves, gauges, and gaskets shall meet industry safety codes. Do not fire the bomb if there is evidence of gas leakage when the bomb is submerged in the calorimeter vessel. Equip the oxygen supply cylinder with an approved type of safety device, such as a relief valve, in addition to the needle valve and pressure gauge used in regulating the oxygen feed of the bomb. The stirrer speed shall remain constant to minimize any temperature variations due to stirring.

Additional precautions are noted in Practice E Thermostatic control of room temperature and controlled relative humidity are desirable. Chassis Name and Number. Test Area – An area free from drafts, shielded from direct sunlight and other radiation sources. An ammeter or pilot light can be used in the circuit to indicate when current is flowing.


Inspect the bomb parts carefully after each use. The balance shall be checked weekly, at a minimum, for accuracy. Do not fire the bomb if the bomb has been dropped or turned over after loading. The heat capacity of the calorimeter is determined by burning a specified mass of benzoic acid in oxygen. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. The initial temperature before initiating the combustion and the final temperatures are recorded by the operator or the microprocessor.

It determines when the calorimeter is in equilibrium and ignites the sample and determines when the d55865 has reached equilibrium after ignition. For more details, consult the manufacturer. The results of combustion calorimetric tests of fuel for steam power plants may be expressed in terms of the International Steam Table calorie I.

One milliliter of this solution is 1. The gross calorific value can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of beneficiation processes. Ignition Fuse – Ignition fuse of mm length and 0. Ignition Circuit – A V alternating or direct current is required for ignition purposes.

Crucible Liner – Quartz fiber or alundum for lining the crucible to promote complete combustion asgm samples that do not burn completely during the determination of the calorific value. For both subsystems, the relationship between the thermometer resistance and temperature shall be well characterized. Oxygen – Manufactured from liquid air, guaranteed to be greater than The mass of sample and any combustion aid as well as the pressure of the oxygen admitted to the bomb shall not exceed the bomb manufacturer’s specifications.

D586 calorimeters having a bucket it can be a separate component of the bomb.
