OZM product managers, Jindrich Kucera and Martin Künzel, won the second place in the competition for the best poster at the twenty-fifth international seminar “New Trends in Research of Energetic Materials” with their poster presentation “On the Effects Influencing Calorimetric Measurement of the Heat of Explosion“.
The OPTIMEX is a high-speed optical recorder with up to 64 synchronized channels (simultaneous 250 MSps sampling rate) used for advanced optical measurements of the shock wave parameters - velocity, curvature, transfer, expansion etc. With such a high number of probes, the instrument’s capabilities resemble those of a high-speed streak camera.
SSB (Stojan Strand Burner) is a modified version of the Crawford bomb and Stojan vessel SV-2 for advanced determination of burning rate of solid rocket propellants. SSB allows to conduct experiments using two different testing procedures: in constant volume or at quasi-constant pressure.
KV250M5 is a compact detonation chamber with four optical windows and multiple sensor ports for laboratory detonation experiments up to 250 gram TNT capacity without excessive noise loading.
20-liter explosion chamber CA20L with precise automated instrumentation is used for the measurement of explosion characteristics of flammable dusts, gases, vapors and hybrid mixtures - maximum explosion pressure, maximum rate of pressure rise, lower and upper explosibility limits and limiting oxygen concentration.
The X SPARK 10 is the newest generation of the universal testing instrumentation designed for the precise evaluation of the sensitivity of energetic materials to electrostatic spark in the range of discharge energies from 25 μJ to 17.5 J and voltages between 500 V and 10 kV.
The Ball Drop Impact Test BIT 132 is designed to determine the impact sensitivity of various types of energetic materials ranging from the most sensitive primary explosives to less-sensitive high explosives and pyrotechnic mixtures.
The BCA® 500 is the only single-instrument solution for the combustion (deflagration) calorimetry of energetic materials on the market. It offers superb resolution, electronic calibration, high pressure measurement, metrological traceability, semi-automatic operation, durable construction, easy to use concept and one-box design with an integrated water cooler.
