Usage conditions apply
Hugo Junkers (1859-1935) was a German engineer best known for having pioneered the development of metal airplanes. He also designed a calorimeter for determining the heat units of a burner in terms of the amount of gas consumed, which received a German patent in 1892 and subsequent patents in other countries. This instrument is of that sort.
