Abstract: One definition of calorimeter is an apparatus for measuring quantities of heat. This discussion will include three gas industry instruments currently used for precision measurement of the quantity of heat resulting from the combustion of a unit volume of gas. The instruments are the Honeywell HVT 100, the Therm Titrator by Precision Measurement, Inc. of Duncanville, Texas, and the Cutler-Hammer. Recording calori meter now produced by Fluid Data, Inc. The British Thermal Unit (BTU) is used by the United States gas industry. It has been defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit from 58.5F to 59.5F. (The International table BTU is 1055.05585262 Joules.)
