Fire Testing Technology

Cone Plus Calorimeter

ISO 5660, ASTM E1354, ASTM E1474, ASTM E1740, ASTM F1550, ASTM D6113, CAN ULC 135, BS 476 Part 15 The iCone Plus Calorimeter is the first in FTT's new interactive range of calorimeters, the i-series. It features the latest technology in control and automation making it the most advanced, reliable and user-friendly cone calorimeter in the world.

LIFT, IMO Spread of Flame Apparatus

ISO 5658-2, IMO Resolution A.653(16), ASTM E1317, ASTM E1321 This instrument uses a gas-fired radiant heat panel with pilot flame ignition to ignite a test specimen.

NBS Smoke Density Chamber

BS 6401, ASTM E662, ASTM F814, NFPA 258 Options: ISO 5659/IMO FTPC Part 2, ATS 1000.001/ABD0031, NES 711 This instrument has been established for many years and is used widely in all industrial sectors for the determination of smoke generated by solid materials and assemblies mounted in the vertical position within a closed chamber.

Oxygen Index

ASTM D2863, BS ISO 4589-2, NES 714 The Oxygen Index is, perhaps, the most economical and precise quality control test of combustible materials. Its ease of use together with high levels of precision has made this technique a primary The Oxygen Index can be used in conjunction with the Elevated Temperature Oxygen Index apparatus (TOI) to determine the oxygen index at temperatures up to 125°C.

Horizontal/Vertical Flame Chamber

The FTT UL 94 tests the flammability of plastic materials for parts in devices and appliances. The apparatus is supplied as a complete system incorporating all the features necessary for ease of use safety. It conforms to all five UL 94 horizontal and vertical burner tests and associated ASTM international standards

Single-Flame Source Test (Ignitability Apparatus)

EN ISO 11925-2 The Euroclassification construction products directive enables various performance classes (A to F) to be established for wall and roofing products and floor-coverings. Higher classifications are achieved from good performances in the SBI apparatus, for roofing and wall lining products, or in Flooring Radiant Panel test for flooring products. FTT make both of these apparatus.
