Advanced. Fully Automatic.

The CAL2K system is the most advanced, fully automatic calorimeter available today. The result of years of research with dedicated engineers employing the latest state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials.

The CAL2K is easy to use and has special features which places it in a league of its own. Accuracy

is guaranteed with microprocessors that use self-correcting processes, exceeding the standard requirements of DIN, ASTM and ISO. Its ability to interface with a personal computer, ensures preferred results with display, data printouts and connectivity across a network.

The CAL2K has been designed for the high volume market and is most suitable for customers running 10 or more CV samples per day.

CAL2K COMPLETE SYSTEM

The complete CAL2K system consists of : The CAL2K-1 Calorimeter, CAL2K-1-KT Calorimeter Installation Kit, CAL2K-2 Water Cooler, CAL2K-2-KT Cooler Installation Kit, CAL2K-3 Filling Station, CAL2K-3-KT Filling Station Installation Kit, CAL2K-4 Vessel and the CAL2K-4-KT Vessel Installation Kit.

 

CAL2K Calorimeter

The CAL2K-1 Calorimeter can operate as either a stand-alone unit or via a PC.

 

When operating as a stand-alone unit it is operated via the keyboard and all relevant information is displayed on the LCD Display. Up to 7 Calorimeters can be connected as a network with or without a PC.

 

The CAL2K-4 Vessel

The CAL2K-4 Vessel is the first of its kind and is the heart of the CAL2K System.

 

Its sophisticated design allows the temperature to be measured to five decimal places in degrees Celsius. The vessel is an intelligent (SMART) vessel with a microprocessor built into its base. The vessel is capable of : firing counts, identification, memory and reconditioning data.

 

The vessel is the combustion chamber. It is made of stainless steel and tested up to a pressure of 300 atmospheres (4200psi).

 

The CAL2K Filling Station

The Filling Station is designed to fill the vessel with oxygen to 3Mpa.

 

The filling rate is controlled so as not to disrupt the sample in the crucible. The Filling Station is extremely easy to operate and requires minimal adjustments and maintenance.

 

The CAL2K Water Cooler

The unit is designed to reduce the temperature of a recently fired vessel, obtained from the calorimeter, to ambient temperature in 2-3 minutes.

Solid state cooling is used and the hot junction of the peltier elements is cooled by a continuous trickle of water from the mains water supply.
