A fire sequence in the ISO – Room Corner Test and EN – SBI can for example be predicted using the ISO method. The cone calorimeter test is. The ISO Central Secretariat accepts no liability in this area. .. International Standard ISO was prepared by Technical Committee.

Fire gas and smoke yields per gram of sample burnt are also calculated. The heat release is measured using the data on measured oxygen concentration in the emitted smoke. The specimens shall be representative of the product, and as far as possible be similar to the final product.
Volatile gases from the heated specimen are ignited by an electrical spark igniter. The unit m2 is related to specimen area.
The test gives a possibility to evaluate:. When testing a product according to ISOa sample with the dimension mm x mm is subjected to a specific irradiance level. This gas analysis makes it possible to calculate heat release rate and to assess production of toxic gases from the specimen. Range of Lso Conditions.
Additionaly, measurements of smoke production and production of toxic gases can be performed during the test. Typical output summaries may include: Maximum thickness 50 mm. It is also possible to measure production of other gas components, like HCN cyanic acid. The surface of the sample is heated and starts to emit pyrolysis gases that ignite by a spark igniter.
ISO 5660-1 & 2 Cone calorimeter
Dimensions of the specimens: The test method is used for fire technical modelling. Levels of toxic gases can also be measured with FTIR analysis. According to ISO Time to Peak Rate of Heat Release.
Test procedure When testing a product according to ISOa sample with the dimension mm x mm is subjected to a specific irradiance level. A complete test requires that at least 12 specimens are available.
The smoke production is measured continually throughout the test with a laser system. The following test results are tabulated: Smoke production is assessed by measuring attenuation of a laser beam by smoke in the exhaust duct. Effective heat of combustion.
ISO & 2 Cone calorimeter
The cone calorimeter test is also largely used when testing products that are under development. The Cone Calorimeter test is at present the most advanced method for assessing materials reaction to fire. Areas of use The test method is used for fire technical modelling.
The method follows the procedure given in international standard ISO The data from the test results can be used for modelling bigger fires. The emitted gases are collected in a hood and transported away through a ventilation system.
A thorough analysis requires testing at several irradiance levels. The specimen is mounted on a load cell which records the mass loss rate of the specimen during combustion.
The raw data is manipulated and heat release rates and effective heats of combustion are calculated together with averaged data calculated by oxygen consumption calorimetry.
Controlled Atmosphere version available. The test method is also used for third party verification production control. Ave 3 min rate of heat release.
The surface of the specimens shall be essentially flat. Often shortly after ignition for non-FR materials but some may show two peaks. Up to s.
