Introducing the 1109X High Strength Semimicro Oxygen Combustion Vessel
Parr is a distinctive calorimeter producer in the market. It is well known that a large portion of Parr’s business is custom built reactor systems. However, few know that Parr builds custom calorimeters for special tasks as well.
In response to a customer request, Parr recently developed a high strength, combustion micro-vessel 1109X, with the corresponding bucket, for use in a 6200 Calorimeter. This system is optimized for applications where samples have a small energy release but generate high dynamic pressure during the combustion.
This system is additionally optimized for scenarios where the amount of sample available for testing is limited. This special version of the Parr 6200 Calorimeter and 1109X Vessel performs with better than 1% precision for energy releases as low as 1 kJ (equivalent to 40 mg of benzoic acid). This arrangement provides superior precision in the low energy range for combustion or reaction processes which is generally unattainable with calorimeters using conventional size vessels. This calorimetric system is especially useful in applications where the determination of the heat of combustion is required for optimizing the chemical synthesis of energetic materials, or similar research tasks.
Parr welcomes customer challenges and always looks forward to meeting them.
Let us build one for you.
