Equipment | Thermal Analysis |Calorimeters


A calorimeter is used to evaluate the heat of a chemical reaction or the physical transformation of a reaction along with its heat capacity.

Calorimeters are based on one of three different methods. The temperature change method involves the use of a measuring cell to determine the heat shift of a reaction taking place in the calorimeter.

The power compensation method involves a reaction and a heat source being kept at the same power, resulting in a heat change that is equivalent to the integration of heat over time. The heat conduction method involves a temperature change brought on by the heat generated in a reaction, which a calorimeter records as a voltage passing through heat flow sensors.
