Vertical flame propagation equipment for single wire or cable

homepage >Products >Fire test equipment > Vertical flame propagation equipment for single wire or cable

The purpose is to verify the behaviour of the cable installed individually in the most unfavourable position, namely in the vertical position, to prevent the propagation of flames that may be transmitted from an external source.

The insulation burns, but the flame must not propagate more than 55 cm from the point in which the individual cable is applied.

SIF, through its collaboration with the most important testing and research institutes, comparing notes with customers and scrupulous analysis of normative requirements, has been able to develop a complete range of equipment for fire testing, with particular attention focused on:

  • SAFETY NORMS
  • EASE OF INSTALLATION
  • COMFORMITY WITH NORMSCEI EN IEC 60332-1-1, CEI EN IEC 60332-2-1




Elements that make up the testing system:

1. Cabinet with instruments for the adjustment and measurement of Gas/Air intake values for the burner
Mass Flow meter or glass tube meter for air
Flow Regulators
Water column pressure gauge (only in the event glass tube flow meters are used)
Pressure regulators, complete with pressure gauges and taps for Gas/Air intake
Internal aluminium panelling
Realised in painted sheet metal
2. Burner Group
Pre-mixed burner model provided as required by the norms
Flexible connection tubes
3. Device to check the flame
Copper block
Thermocouple
Support

 

Options available for testing systems:

4. Burner for test with spreading flame
5.Metal screening. Complete with sliding support for the burner
6. Temperature reading instrument (thermometer)
