The name CalorVal exemplifies the analyzer’s ability to directly measure the calorific value of gases while providing a uniform response to a wide variety of combustibles. The unit is economical, fully heated and includes an air-aspirator-driven assembly that comes complete and ready to install. Its industrial-strength design allows quick and reliable monitoring and control of waste gas streams and advanced combustion equipment.
The CalorVal’s theory of operation employs a carefully metered flame that burns at a constant reference temperature inside an explosion-proof measuring cell. A sample, drawn from the atmosphere to be monitored, is passed through the flame cell. A thermocouple measures changes in flame temperature; an increase in temperature is directly proportional to the calorific value (Btu).
