Description:

There is the cone calorimeter located in laboratory. Cone calorimeter (Fig. 1, Fig. 2) is a device designed to determine the rate of heat release of the material by monitoring the consumption of oxygen. The time to initiation of flame combustion can be observed at a load of test samples by heat flux to 100 kW.m-2. Device is further possible to measure the concentrations of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide during thermal load at the small-scale tests. It is also designed to monitor the formation of heat and smoke during combustion and the rate of mass loss. Measurement on a cone calorimeter is carried out according to technical standard.
