Fire Safe Testing Equipment
The failure of bolted flanged joints in industrial plants must be precluded also in the case of a fire. Although the thermal loads exceed the values in operation many times, the leak rates from bolted joints or valves must still be within acceptable limits untill the fire-fighters have the situation under control. Standards of the American Petrolium Institute (API) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) regulate these demands.
The testing device TEMESfire.safe is engineered to test flanged joints and valves for their fire resistance. With this device, user-defined test procedures or tests according to DIN EN ISO 10497, API 607, API 6FA or API 6FB can be conducted. The determination of the external and internal leakage is the focus of these investigations.
Used by us
The TEMES fire.safe test rig is also used in our test laboratory. We would be delighted to determine the quality of your gaskets in terms of DIN EN ISO 10497, BS 6755-2, API 607, API 6FA, API 6FB or API 589 for you here. You can find more information on gasket testing at AMTEC under the menu tab Test laboratory.
