Animal feeding stuffs, animal products, and faeces or urine - Determination of gross calorific value - Bomb calorimeter method (ISO 9831:1998)

Status: Valid

Scope
This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the gross calorific value of animal feeding stuffs, animal products and faeces or urine at constant volume in an adiabatic, an isothermal, or a static bomb calorimeter. The result obtained by this method is the gross calorific value of the test sample at constant volume, the water of the combustion products being condensed to liquid at the calorimeter temperature. NOTE The international reference temperature for thermochemistry of 25 °C is used as the reference temperature for calorific value, although the temperature dependence of the calorific value of the materials to which this International Standard applies is small (about 1 J·g^-1·K^-1).
