Laboratory furnace for fire resistance tests
Fire Resistance Test Furnaces in a variety of configuration (horizontal, vertical or combined) for fire resistance test for suspended ceilings, viewfinders, walls, columns, etc., are designed according to specific heating curves.
Laboratory chamber furnaces stands are the optimal solution in the implementation of structural fire resistance tests of bulding and ship constructions, horizontal and vertical components, and safes. The work of the furnace is fully automated, controlled by PLC (programmable logic controller), which simulates the fire course and provides great flexibility in terms of adaptation to rapid and effective changes in the parameters of a given research.
Fire resistance test chamber flexibility is worth emphasizing (i.e. the ability to quick and efficient adaptation to the type of study). It is equipped with viewfinders to observe the behavior of the test element inside the test chamber, the visualization, data archiving and reporting system, enabling static and dynamic load simulation during fire tests.
Technical solutions of SECO/WARWICK furnaces ensure the implementation of specific fire resistance tests of all structures. Devices can be adapted to the specific needs and demands of our customers as well. The diversity of customer requirements necessitates the need of implementing the design of the equipment that will carry the process out in a way that provides maximum flexibility.
