Thermal protection performance tester

Thermal protection performance tester

  The thermal protection index tester is suitable for industries and institutions such as textile and clothing, petrochemicals, labor safety protection, and quality supervision and inspection to meet different requirements for the thermal protection performance testing of protective clothing. It provides a scientific and reliable basis for the development and quality control of flame-retardant protective clothing, as well as the testing of thermal protection performance during the use of flame-retardant protective clothing.

  Applicable scope

  This device is used to test the thermal protection performance of protective clothing, safety shoes, gloves, helmet outer surfaces, etc. By testing the thermal protection performance of materials under the action of a predetermined thermal radiation heat source.
