This standard method describes a procedure for the determination of the thermal value of fuels using a plain jacket oxygen bomb calorimeter (Note 1).

Thermal value is defined as the quantity of heat released during the complete combustion of a known quantity of the fuel, expressed as joules per unit weight.

This method is directed towards, but is not necessarily limited to, those fuels which are most frequently encountered in the pulp and paper industry. These include: Bunker "C" oil, black liquor solids, clarifier and deinking sludges, bark and other wood waste.

Where required, corrections for sulphur content and ash content can be made by means of procedures outlined in Appendices I and II.

CAUTION: Oxygen bomb calorimetry involves pressures greatly in excess of those encountered in normal laboratory testing procedures. The manufacturer's recommendations regarding maximum oxygen charge and test specimen size MUST NOT be exceeded. In addition, an oxygen combustion bomb which shows signs of corrosion MUST be retired from service (Ref. 1).

It is strongly recommended that persons unfamiliar with oxygen bomb calorimetry receive a thorough training in the techniques involved before being permitted to run this test method.
