What is Bomb Calorimetry?

Bomb calorimetry is a method that we use to measure the heat of combustion of a substance. This process involves burning a sample in a high-pressure container, known as bombs, and measuring the energy released. Kinetica, Inc utilizes advanced calorimeters to provide precise measurements. Our experienced technicians ensure that each test is conducted under controlled conditions to deliver reliable data. The results here are crucial for research and development, quality control, and regulatory compliance.

Applications of the Calorimetry

The test is used across various industries that include pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, food and beverage, and materials science. It helps determine the calorific value of fuels, the nutritional content of food, and the energetic properties of materials. Our services support a wide range of applications. Our capabilities can meet your specific requirements whether you need to assess the energy content of a new fuel or verify the caloric value of a food product.

Importance of Accuracy

Accuracy in the testing process is paramount as it directly impacts the reliability of the data obtained. Inaccurate results can lead to erroneous conclusions and potential safety risks. Our ISO 17025 certification at Kinetica, Inc. Underscores our commitment to precision and quality. We adhere to strict calibration and testing protocols.
