Usually in a bomb calorimeter, there is some mass of water and some sample (let's say octane) burning. The system we are concerned with would be the octane, and its surroundings would be the water. While burning, the octane would release heat and the water would absorb it. So, within the bomb calorimeter, the concept of qsys = -qsurr still applies.
