Bomb calorimeter (IKA-Janke & Kunkel C4000)

Applied for determination of calorific value of solid and liquid fuels and biomasses. This is an adiabatic calorimeter, which works according to DIN 51900-3.

Helium-Pycnometer (Mutlivolume Micromeritics 1305)

Provides a precise and rapid determination of the true volume of powders, porous materials, and irregularly shaped solid objects.

Pycnometer (Gay-Lussac)

For determination density of liquids and gross density of solids. Gravimetric measurement with glass vessel of known volume according to DIN 51757.

Muffle Furnace: Heraeus MR 170 E

The main purpose is the heating of samples up to 1000°C. The furnace can thus be used for calcination, drying, burning out of vessels and the measurement of coke and ash content of fuels.
