Each vessel must be calibrated in the CAL3K it is used in. The CAL3K saves up to 16 calibrations per vessel.
The storage in the vessel is organized in:
- Vessel serial number
- Operating mode
If you have multiple CAL3K’s in a room and don’t want to share the vessels between them then there is no need to calibrate each vessel in each calorimeter.
The CAL3K has the following calibration procedures:
How to start a calibration
|Start of command|
After a calibration, the following items are stored in the vessel in the specified field:
- Date and time
- Initial drift
- Firing temperature
- Ambient temperature
- Main slope
- Bomb Factor
The vessels are calibrated in the factory before shipment. However, a change in operating conditions and for quality assurance of the results, the calibration should be repeated regularly. For details see:
An AVERAGE calibration is calculated with the available older calibrations every time the vessel is inserted.
The calibration management (AI) process analyses the calibrations and rejects (blocks) a calibration to be used for averaging when it falls outside the preset limits.
If the calibration memory is full then the oldest calibration is rejected.
