Flammability Tester for Helmets Machines
The ability of non-metallic helmets to withstand flame without getting damaged is determined by applying the flame of a Barthel Burner on the helmet shell. The effect of flame on the helmet is then observed to evaluate its resistance to flaming.
The Globe Flammability Resistance Tester for helmets consists of a Barthel burner mounted on a swivel stand to make it vertical or inclined; a screw arrangement to move the burner with stand in the horizontal direction; a sheet metal enclosure in which the burner and sliding arrangement is fitted along with arrangement to hold the helmet under test to guard the flame against air currents; and a reservoir to supply liquid fuel to the burner from the specified height with fuel line fitted with a valve to control the rate of the supply of fuel.
