Abstract:

Calorimeter performance was promising with both sensible heat and latent plus sensible heat inputs. Liquid supplies at 195 deg. and 20 deg. F formed part of the plate meter and saturator supply circuit requirements. The control functions will be obtained by 3 thermocouple input pneumatic recorder controllers and the liquid temperatures in the circuits will be controlled by 9 pneumatic control valves.
