Differential Calorimeter for Cement and Concrete - ToniCAL
Differential Calorimeter for Direct Determination of the Heat of Hydration (J/g) of Cement
ToniCAL differential calorimeter 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.
ToniCAL is made up of two main elements, the calorimeter and the control device.
The calorimeter 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.

Triple Chamber Computer Controlled Differential Scanning Calorimeter for Direct Determination of the Heat of Hydration (J/g) of Cement
ToniCAL TRIO is an extension of ToniCAL that contains three independent chambers for calorimetry allowing a greater productivity in test results. The extra chambers allows for parallel independent time varying use of each test specimen. This allows for more accurate calorimetry measurements including determination of background noise.
