1761 Printer

Operating results and operator messages are displayed clearly on the touch screen for review and action. Many users who connect their calorimeter to a computer will choose to print their results from their computer and will not need a dedicated printer for their calorimeter.
For users who prefer to have a dedicated printer at the calorimeter, Parr offers the compact model 1761 Printer with USB interface.
The 1761 Printer is a compact, thermal printer setup for 40-column reports. It is the default printer for the 6000 Series Calorimeters. It is housed in a separate 6 inches wide, 8 inches deep and 6 inches high unit. It operates from its own power supply.

Oxygen Combustion Vessels

1138 Oxygen Combustion Vessel

1138 Oxygen Combustion Bomb


The 1138 Oxygen Vessel is the standard vessel in the 6400 Calorimeter. The 1138 Oxygen Vessel has been designed to withstand a higher magnitude of tests. The head is designed with an O-ring groove which is optimized to minimize frictional wear, in turn improving the lifetime of the seal. The vessel head is removable for fast sample loading using the patented Quick Twist-Lock vessel closure design.

1104 High Pressure Oxygen Combustion Bomb

The 1104 High Strength Vessel with Cage and Loop is a heavy-walled, 240 mL vessel. It is designed for combustion tests of explosives and other fast burning, high energy samples, that burn with extreme violence. The 1104 High Strength Vessel will handle samples liberating up to 12,000 calories using an oxygen charging pressure up to 45 atm (665 psig).

See 1104 High Pressure Oxygen Combustion Vessel for more information.


1109A Semi-micro Oxygen Combustion Vessel

1109A Semi-micro Oxygen Combustion Bomb

The 22 mL 1109A Semi-micro vessel is the smallest Parr Combustion Vessel. It will handle samples that range from 25 to 200 milligrams, liberating 52 to 1200 calories when burned in oxygen, using initial pressures up to 35 atmospheres. Outputs of up to 2400 calories can be accommodated if the sample is self-oxidizing, provided it is burned in an inert atmosphere and does not produce gas.

See 1109A Semi-micro Oxygen Combustion Vessel for more information.

Water Handling Systems

6510 Water Handling System


The 6510 Water Handling System is a closed loop system offered for our 6100 and 6200 Calorimeters.

In a closed loop system, the bucket water is recycled to a holding tank and circulated through a cooler to bring the water back to the desired starting temperature. It also provides cooling water for the jacket in the 6200 Calorimeters. Users who desire more consistency than tap water provides, or where water supplies may be high in mineral contents which over time can deposit in the calorimeter, will prefer this mode of operation.

The 6510 Water Handling System uses thermoelectric cooling and and a unique glass pipette to deliver a precise amount of temperature controlled water for filling the bucket and provide cooling water for the jacket.

Additional Calorimeter Accessories

Pellet Press

2811 Pellet Press

The Parr Pellet Press provides a convenient and inexpensive means for compressing powdered samples into pellet or tablet form for oxygen bomb calorimetry. Although many materials burn well as a loose powder, others such as benzoic acid must be pelletized for safe and complete combustion. A pelletized sample will: a) restrict the burning rate to a safe level, b) immobilize loose powder and prevent a possible blowout from the combustion cup, and c) permit easy handling during weighing and transfer to the bomb.
Pellets produced in the Parr press are cylindrical in shape with flat ends. Punch and die sets are available in six sizes from 3.0 mm to 1/2 inch diameters. All are interchangeable in the same basic press. The 1/2 inch size is most commonly used for bomb calorimetry.
