BTU Analysis – $40.00 per sample
A BTU is defined as amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one 1 pound (0.454 kg) of liquid water by 1 °F (0.556 °C) at a constant pressure of one atmosphere. Source: Wikipedia
With biofuels and alternative energy being hot topics of convesation, we are seeing a lot of different sample types that are requesting this analysis.
In the past year, we have performed BTU Analysis on glycerin, waste coal and biomass material. I look for more materials to be tested for BTU potential in the future as energy prices start to rise again.
