Bomb Calorimeter, TBCF, comprises the calorimeter, a calorimeter vessel, an outer double walled water jacket, control unit to switch on/
off the stirrer and the ignition device, a Beckman type thermometer, a magnifying glass, and charging unit with pressure gauges to facilitate
the charging of the calorimeter with oxygen.
The calorimeter vessel and outer jacket wall are manufactured in stainless steel.
The bomb calorimeter is a container made of stainless steel that can support high pressures. It is sealed by a screw top. The bomb is
charged with gas (oxygen) through the filling valve. This bomb is introduced inside a calorimeter vessel made of stainless steel that is filled
with water, and at the same time it is introduced inside a double walled water jacket.
The rod of the calorimeter supports a metallic crucible. The bomb calorimeter, which contains the fuel sample to be burned, is hermetic to
the gas by closing the filling valve and its cover. Combustion is started through a thin wire that is red hot-heated up momentarily due to the
passing of an electrical current that flows through an isolated terminal and the rod, which is electrically connected to the cover.
The water in the calorimeter vessel is agitated automatically with a stirrer driven by a small motor. The top of the double walled jacket is
closed with a cover that has some orifices. A Beckman thermometer to measure the temperature of the calorimeter vessel passes through
one of these orifices. Other orifices are used to fasten the jacket to the cover. Also, one of these holes is used to insert the wire that supplies
the electric current to the rod.
The unit includes a control unit that switches on/off the stirrer and the ignition device through the heating up of the thin wire, a load unit with
pressure gauges to make the filling with oxygen of the calorimeter easier and a magnifying glass to magnify the Beckmans thermometer
