Data | CAL3K Features

The following data retrieval methods are possible:
  • PRINTING: 8 different keyboard selectable formats on D1 RS232 port. Initiated from the keyboard.
  • DUMPING: Not printable output on the D1 RS232 port for capture by a PC and usable by a spreadsheet. Initiated from the keyboard.
  • REQUEST: Data upload to a PC via any port. Initiated from the PC. Works with result data only!

Note: The print and dump outputs have a header explaining each item. The dump outputs are very long and require editing (Selection) by a spreadsheet.


The calibration of the CAL3K is a process in which a substance (Benzoic Acid, BA) of known calorific value is burned so that future burning of unknown substances can be compared to it. In other words the calibration records all the system variables such as temperature rise and heat loss in memory. All this data is called a calibration field. The calibrations are stored in the vessel.

To perform a standard calibration using Benzoic Acid Tablets you will need : A working oxygen bomb calorimeter system connected to a power source, A CAL3K Manual Oxygen Filing Station connected to an oxygen supply (not needed when using the CAL3K-AP Calorimeter)...

The CAL3K system uses two calibrations: Keyboard calibration, in real time, one sample, average with last ‘n’ calibrations, PC calibration, in retrospect, multiple samples. The PC calibration is called ‘IntelCal’ because of its complexity and system effectiveness.
