Heat of Formation – the change in heat content resulting from the formation of 1 mole of a substance from its elements at constant pressure.

ASTM D – 13 Standard Test Method for Gross Calorific Value of Coal and Coke

Notify me of new posts by email. For manually operated calorimeters, the ignition switch s5865 be depressed only long enough to fire the charge. Nickel-chromium alloy Chrome C alloy, cotton thread, or iron wire are acceptable. Replace cracked or significantly worn parts.

Do not fire the bomb if there is evidence of gas leakage when the bomb is submerged in the calorimeter vessel. For calorimeters having a bucket it can be a separate component of the bomb.

Sample Holder – An xstm crucible or platinum, quartz, or base metal alloy. Ignition Fuse – Ignition fuse of mm length and 0. For both subsystems, the relationship between the thermometer resistance and temperature shall be well characterized.

During ignition of a sample, the operator shall not extend any portion of the body over the calorimeter. Use the same type and length or mass of ignition fuse for calorific value determinations as used for standardization. Valves, gauges, d5856 gaskets shall meet industry safety astmm. 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.

The traceability of the heat of combustion of the benzoic acid calibrant in addition to meeting the aforementioned criteria.


ASTM D5865 – 13

The vessel shall be of such construction that the environment of the calorimeter’s entire outer boundaries can be maintained at a uniform temperature. The gross calorific value can d8565 used to evaluate the effectiveness of beneficiation processes.

5d865 The BTU used in modern steam tables is defined by the means of the relation, 1 I. Titiration D58865 – Methyl orange, methyl red, or methyl purple for indicating the end point when titrating the acid formed during combustion. Its size shall be such that the bomb is completely immersed in water during determination.

The gross calorific value astk be used to compute the total calorific content of the quantity of coal or coke represented by the sample for payment purposes.

Check the pressure gauge annually for accuracy or after any accidental over pressures that reach maximum gauge pressure. Combustion Bomb – Constructed of materials that are not affected by the combustion process or the products formed to introduce measurable heat input or alteration of end products.

Equip the oxygen supply cylinder with an approved type of safety device, such as a relief valve, d5856 addition to the needle valve and pressure gauge used in regulating the oxygen feed of the bomb. The bomb shall be designed so that all liquid combustion products can be completely recovered by washing the inner surfaces. The calorific value of the analysis sample is computed by multiplying the corrected temperature rise, adjusted for extraneous heat effects, but the heat capacity and dividing by the satm of the sample.

Heat Capacity – the energy required to raise the temperature of the calorimeter one arbitrary unit. The results of combustion calorimetric tests of fuel for steam power plants may be expressed in terms of the International Steam Table calorie I.

It determines when the calorimeter is in equilibrium and ignites the sample and determines when the calorimeter has reached equilibrium after ignition. This test method pertains to the determination of the gross calorific value of coal and coke by either an isoperibol or adiabatic bomb calorimeter.


Calorimeter Vessel – Made of metal with a d5685 coating, with all outer surfaces highly polished. For manually operated calorimeters, the ignition circuit switch shall be of the momentary double-contact type, normally open except when held closed by the operator.

The following precautions are recommended for safe calorimeter operation. These types of astn consist of two major subsystems. The balance shall be checked weekly, at a minimum, for accuracy. 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. Controller – For automated calorimeter, capable of charging the bomb; filling the calorimeter vessel; firing the ignition circuit; recording calorimeter temperature before, during and after the test; recording the balance weights; and carrying out all necessary corrections and calculations.

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.

The calorific value of benzoic acid, for us in the calibration calculations, shall be traceable to a recognized certificate value. Thermometers – Platinum resistance or thermistor thermometers – shall be capable of measuring to the nearest 0.

One milliliter of this solution is 1. The heat capacity of the calorimeter is determined by burning a d865 mass of benzoic acid in oxygen.
