The importance of testing equipment such as fire-resistant, flame-retardant test apparatus


In April 2019, a fire broke out in Notre Dame de Paris, France, and the entire building was severely damaged. On October 31 of the same year, seven buildings covering an area of 4,200 square meters, including the main hall, north hall and south hall, were burnt down in the ruins of the capital city of the Ryukyu Kingdom in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. Important cultural relic buildings have always been the focus of fire prevention measures, and it is still impossible to completely avoid fires and cause heavy losses. Both fires are estimated to be caused by electrical failures, causing sparks to set wires and objects on fire. In modern society, the importance of Testing Equipment such as fire-resistant, flame-retardant, and fire-resistant combustion testing instruments are becoming more and more important. Our zonsky has more than 1,000 testing instruments, among which meets the standard of wire and cable are UL 1581, UL 62, IEC 60227, IEC 60335, EN 50399:2011, ISO 6722:2006, UL 2556-2007, VDE 0281, IEC 60332-2-2, IEC 60811-1-4, DIN VDE 0295, IEC 60227-2:2003, BS 6207, IEC 60245-1:2003, IEC 60331-11:1999, ISO 3808:2002, IEC 60060-1:2007, IEC 60507:1991, IEC 61442:2005, TUV 2PFG 2577-08, IEC 60332-2-1, CRIA 0003.2-2016, JIS C3005-2000, IEC 60245-2:2003, IEC 60331-25:1999, IEC 60502-1:2004, MT 818.1-2009, IEC 60331-23:1999, AS 3187, UL 758-2016, ISO 834-1:1999, BS 476.20, IEC 60702-1:2002, IEC 60331-21:1999, UL 758, IEC 60228, UL 13, ECE R118, EN 50200, UL 444, UL 1666:2007, UL 1685:2010, ISO 14572:2006, IEC 60332-1-3, ISO 6722, IEC 60468, GJB 17.18-84, IEC 60245-2, IEC 60227-2:2003, VDE 0472 Part 616, ISO 14572-2011, ISO 14572, ISO 6722-2006, UL 817 SA9 Mechanical Strength Test, JB/T 10696.3-2007, IEC 60332-1, BS 6387-2013, NB/T 31036-2012, IEC 60332-1-2, IEC 60331-31:2002, IEC 61442:2005, UL 1655-VW-1, VDE 0472, BS 8491:2008, UL 2556, TB/T 1484, DIN EN 50305:2020.

In the 21st century, the economic development is advancing by leaps and bounds compared with the past. Housing construction, rail transit, and cable laying are all based on electricity. Of course, there are fire hazards when there is electricity. Only qualified wires and cables, qualified building materials with fire-resistant and flame-retardant properties, and construction materials with strong fire-resistant properties exceeding the qualified indicators can better prevent problems before they happen, delay the spread of fire and reduce losses in the event of a fire.

Here Zonsky wants to talk about how much the Testing Equipment for testing these construction materials needs to be paid attention to. Only qualified and accurate fire-resistant, flame-retardant and fire-resistant combustion testing equipment can confirm that the insulating materials, building materials, textiles, plastics, etc. to be put into production and construction fully comply with national and international flame-retardant standards. Here to introduce some testing equipment such as fire retardant and fire resistance burning testers.flame retardant test

a. Wire and cable burning test machine

The testing equipment mainly detects the fire resistance burning test of wire and cable insulation coating materials, strictly in accordance with national standards, and tests whether military and civilian wires and cables meet the burning performance within the standard. At present, no matter the family or the school, the safety of the power supply is often ignored by everyone, and it has also caused many tragedies. In addition to paying attention to the policy, after the fire safety training, at the source, the wire and cable must be fire-resistant and flame-resistant in accordance with national regulations to reduce the possibility of fire.

b. Building material burning test apparatus

As the name implies, the detection equipment is to detect and determine whether the building materials are flammable, difficult-flammable and non-combustible. It also needs to detect the concentration and quantity of smoke produced during the combustion of building materials. After all, when a fire broke out, many people had difficulty breathing because the smoke was too thick, causing casualties.

c. Fire Equipment testing apparatus

The detection of fire-fighting equipment is also an important part of what we need to do before a fire occurs. Only qualified fire-fighting equipment can extinguish the open fire in time, intervene in the early stage of the fire, and reduce losses. Fire equipment testing equipment can generally be divided into fire hose testing apparatus, fire extinguisher testing equipment, fire hydrant testing instrument, etc.

d. Burning testing apparatus for plastics, textiles, furniture, etc.

This part of the burning test machine mainly detects the combustion performance of articles in the civil field. Such as foam horizontal and vertical burning tester, flame spread characteristic burning test apparatus, heat release rate test instrument, mattress furniture burning test equipment, etc.

The above is a part of the fire retardant testing machine for you to introduce here. Please pay attention to the importance of fire retardant testing equipment. Accurately testing the fire resistance test of materials in all walks of life is the initial link to prevent fires, and it should arouse your attention.
