Thermal protection testing

November 1st, 2014 / By: / Products

The ThermaRate™ Thermal Barrier Test Apparatus from SDL Atlas measures the burn injury protection of fabrics used in protective clothing worn by workers in the proximity of fires or extreme heat sources, replicating the effects of fabric in proximity of a fire but not immersed in one. Includes closed-loop controlled IR radiant heat source, automated shutter, fabric sample holder, heat flux gage and skin simulant sensor, and a PC-based data acquisition system with burn injury algorithms. User can select the radiant heat flux level at the fabric sample, the irradiation time, and choose and set precisely the air gap between the fabric sample and sensors. For research use as well as repetitive use in quality assurance applications.
