Coal ash fusibility furnaces (CAF)

The CAF digital model meets the following standards:

  • BS ISO 540:2008. Hard coal and coke. Determination of ash fusibility
  • ASTM D1857/D1857M – 04 (2010) - Standard Test Method for Fusibility of Coal and Coke Ash
  • PD CEN/TR 15404:2010 Solid recovered fuels – Methods for the determination of ash melting behaviour by using characteristic temperatures
  • DD CEN/TS 15370-1 2006 Solid biofuels – Methods for the determination of ash melting behaviour – Part 1

The CAF digital model has the following features:
  • Automatically records images of the melting test pieces, up to a maximum of 1 image/°C change
  • Software to determine quickly the melting points of the test pieces
  • Images recorded to PC with bespoke software (both supplied)
  • Choice of gases to meet relevant standards (must be specified at the time of order)
  • Adjustable flow meters and gas pressure monitoring system with nitrogen safety purge
  • Up to 12 samples can be analysed simultaneously
  • Model suitable for analysis of biomass and solid recovered fuels (specify at the time of order)
  • Test piece moulds, stands and tiles supplied
