The creation of the C-3500 flame intensity calorimeter was primarily for the measurement of combustion chamber heat fluxes in power generating facilities. The k type temperature sensor allows the direct and instantaneous power evaluation of combustion chamber gasses for optimum stoichiometric fuel/air mix. Additionally, the calorimeter is traditionally used in verifying source of heat intensities at different cracking tower stations across the complete oil refinery process, which assures process repeatability. Another significant 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 flame intensity temperature sensor is a 1.00 – 2.00 inch diameter, rod that is placed in direct contact with all the heated gasses. The signal generated is directly proportional on the local heat flux; a radial traverse in the source yields a measure of the total power output. The sensor yields D.C. millivolt signals that may be measured with conventional millivolt meters or recorders.

The C-3500-3600 Flame Calorimeter is to be inserted using a port directly into the combustion gas stream. The HT-50 High Temperature Heat Flux Transducer continues to be welded as well as heat sunk to a location 50mm from your tip of your C-3500 Probe(C-3600 has sensor at tip of probe). The place of 66devppky sensor is on the very same side because the water discharge port and possesses been temporarily marked for your benefit. This location should be noted and situated in order that the combustion gasses impinge directly upon it. The best detected fluxes will occur once the sensor location is in 900 or at a stagnation point out the flame front.

The calorimeter includes an inner water feeding tube inside the hollow cylindrical probe. Cool water enters from the inner tube and flows out from the annular gap in between the inner tube and inner wall in the outer probe tube. A control system varies the speed of flow of water to keep up the inside temperature in the probe wall with a constant value. Water coolant must be supplied on the probes rear inlet in a flow rate of 10 – 20 Liters/Minute. Boiling of your cooling water must never be allowed, for quite high thermal flux rates, the water/coolant flow rate must be increased up until the exit water temp is tepid. The normal heat flux is calculated by multiplying the from the measured DC micro-voltage.
