Solution Calorimeter for Direct Determination of the Heat of Hydration (J/g) of Cement
The Solution Calorimeter for Cement and Concrete - QualiCAL is an instrument used to analyze the setting behaviour of building materials such as cement and mortar. It is able to determine the rate of heat generation with respect to time with the rigid control of a computer control system.
The Solution Calorimeter for Cement and Concrete - QualiCAL is designed with a steel housing to protect the samples from environmental heat fluctuation as well as specimen-to-specimen heat transfer. Each measuring cell is also fitted with a heating element and thermoelectric conductive measuring chains for heat output readings.
From the beginning of the test, the control device operates the procedure with a direct interface. The control stabilizes the thermal signal and amplifies it to be a measurable voltage. It also monitors the internal measuring cell temperature. All data is logged on an internal drive for later download.
