  • Home Fire Safety Using Thermal Imagers
    homes reducing money out of our pockets. But did you know that thermal imagers can also help us to detect dangerous fire hazards before they result in damage and injury, saving money, and potentially lives? When electric circuits have an increased resistance and begin building up excess heat
  • Testing for Flame Resistance of Electrical Cables
    The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) publishes flame-resistance standards through its published National Electrical Code (NEC). Other agencies, such as UL and CSA also publish standards and also define certain tests for determining flame resistance (or lack thereof). Flame resistance
  • Differences in Water Glycol Hydraulic Fluids Can Have Serious Effects
    Fire-resistance has made water-glycol-based hydraulic fluids (WGHFs) the preferred choice for hydraulic applications in the primary metals industries, including aluminum die casting. Their low flammability and relatively low cost have also made these products attractive for general hydraulic use.
  • Ester / Diester Fluids
    Fluids are based upon phosphate ester, dibasic ester, polyol ester, silicate ester or diester compounds. Phosphate esters and other synthetic fluids tend to have the highest fire resistance and cost. They are generally used in a diluted form with concentrations from 3% to 10%. Synthetic fluids
  • High Water Content Fluids (HWCF)
    , synthetic fluid, viscosity improvers, antifriction additives, rust inhibitors, biocides, fungicides and sludge inhibitors. High water content fluids (HWCF) have high fire-resistance compared to straight oil or emulsions. The high water content reduces or eliminates the fire hazards associated
  • Synthetic Fluids and Greases
    Synthetic or semi-synthetic fluids or greases are based on synthetic compounds such as silicone, polyglycol, esters, diesters, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and mixtures of synthetic fluids and water. Synthetic fluids tend to have the highest fire resistance and cost. Synthetic fluids contain
  • Thermal Response Characteristics of Marine Grade Radome Composites Designed for use on Spruance Class Naval Destroyers
    Survivability of marine grade composite structures exposed to fire is of greatest concern due to a number of issues including: flammability, fire growth, fire resistance, fire protection, and structural integrity. A warship can expect to encounter intense fire exposure during battle conditions
  • Complex stainless weldment used in marine, pharmaceutical and semiconductor application. Part needs high corrosion resistance.
    The customer needed parts to withstand a variety. of environments, such as salt air, harsh chemicals, etc. without. rusting or discoloring. The parts are used on fire fighting equipment, and in. pharmaceutical laboratories where harsh chemical wash downs are required. The components are also used
  • Powering Safety Systems - Giving Yourself Significant Power "Headroom" (.pdf)
    that impact voltage reaching the fire or gas detector, any one of which may cause an unwanted shutdown or damage to the instrument. The most fundamental factor to consider is wire resistance between the power supply and the device but there many other factors.
  • Fibrous Refractories
    systems. The low density of the refractory fibers results in increased insulative properties. Refractories are hard, heat resistant materials and products such as alumina cement, fire clay, bricks, precast shapes, cement or monolithics, and ceramic kiln furniture. Ceramics and refractories have high
