Prediction of the Material Behavior under Fire Conditions

For safety reasons, it is very important to know the behavior of supposedly non-combustible materials under fire conditions: What happens with the building material? How durable are the building constructions? We show how to use the Kinetics Neo software to predict the material behavior under fire conditions.

Mobile Air Conditioners to Prevent an Infection With the “Coronavirus” – An Effective Solution?

Mobile Air Conditioning Unit _ Coronavirus_NETZSCH

Closed indoor spaces are a problem due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 via aerosols, especially in winter, when cold temperatures limit the ability to air rooms. A body of experts investigates the extent to which particle concentrations in enclosed indoor spaces can decreased with the help of highly effective indoor filters. The smoke density test device from NETZSCH TAURUS Instrument was also used in this context. Read more in the article!

Mobile Klimageräte zur Vermeidung einer „Corona“-Virus Infektion – Eine effektive Lösung?

Mobile Air Conditioning Unit _ Coronavirus_NETZSCH

Geschlossene Innenräume stellen durch die Verbreitung des „Coronavirus“ über Aerosole vor allem im Winter ein Problem dar, da wegen der kalten Temperaturen das Lüften von Räumen nur eingeschränkt möglich ist. Der Expertenkreis Aerosole beschäftigt sich damit, in welchem Ausmaß die Partikelkonzentration in geschlossenen Innenräumen mit Hilfe von hochwirksamen Innenraumfiltern vermindert werden kann. Dabei kam auch der Rauchdichte Analysator von NETZSCH Taurus Instrument zum Einsatz. Lesen Sie mehr im Artikel!

Warum ein Cone Calorimeter (ISO 5660-1) Leben retten kann

NETZSCH_Fire Testing_Cone Calorimeter

Brandprüfungsvorschriften sind unerlässlich, um die Entflammbarkeit und Brandausbreitung auf einem überschaubaren Niveau zu halten. Bei der “Prüfung des Brandverhaltens” wird ein Cone Calorimeter verwendet, um die Wärmefreisetzungsrate und dynamische Rauchentwicklung einer Materialprobe einzuschätzen. Lesen Sie wie unser neues Cone Calorimeter die genaue Bestimmung der HRR erlaubt und Hinweise auf den Beitrag eines Materials zur Brandentwicklung und -ausbreitung gibt.

Why the Cone Calorimeter in Accordance with ISO 5660-1 Is a Lifesaver

NETZSCH_Fire Testing_Cone Calorimeter

Fire testing regulations are crucial in keeping flammability and the spread of fire at a manageable level. The “Reaction to Fire Test” uses a Cone Calorimeter to assess the heat release rate and dynamic smoke production of a material sample. Learn how our new Cone Calorimeter allows for exact determination of the Heat Release Rate and gives an indication as to a material’s contribution to fire development and spread.
