Our 9610CXc calorimeter Wobbe Index measurement is based on the analysis of the oxygen content in the flue gas after combustion of the sample.  A continuous gas sample is mixed with dry air at a precisely maintained constant ration, which depends on the BTU range of the gas to be measured. The fuel air mixture is oxidized in a combustion furnace in the presence of a catalyst at 800°C, and the oxygen concentration of the combusted sample is measured by a zirconia oxide cell.

how it works

The 9610CXc calorimeter is a specialized instrument used for measuring the calorific value of fuels and other combustible materials. It works by burning a small sample of the material and measuring the heat produced by the combustion reaction.

The instrument consists of a combustion chamber where the sample is burned, and a heat exchanger which extracts the heat generated by the combustion process. The heat exchanger is typically filled with water, and the temperature rise of the water is used to calculate the amount of heat produced by the combustion reaction.

To use the calorimeter, a small amount of the material being tested is placed in the combustion chamber and ignited. The heat generated by the combustion is transferred to the heat exchanger, causing the temperature of the water to rise. The temperature change is measured using a thermocouple or other temperature sensor, and this data is used to calculate the calorific value of the material.

In refining, the 9610CXc calorimeter can be used to determine the energy content of various feedstocks and products, allowing for more precise control over refining processes and improved efficiency. By accurately measuring the calorific value of different materials, refinery operators can optimize their processes to maximize the yield of high-value products while minimizing waste and energy consumption.
