GLOW WIRE TESTER (Glow-Wire Ignition Of Materials)

The equipment is designed as per requirement of
IEC:60695-2-10, IEC:60950-1, IEC:60335-1, IEC:60884-1, IEC:60238, IEC:60695-2-11, IEC:60695-2-12, IEC:60745-1, IEC:60400, IEC 60730-1, IEC:60598-1, IEC:61050, IEC:60320-1, IEC:61058-1, IEC:60742, IEC:60669-1, UL 746A, BS EN 60695-2-1, BS 6458, NF C20-921-1, IS:11000, ASTM D 6194-03
‘Fire” hazard testing- part – 2 test method section 1, Glow wire test and Guidance.Nickel / Chromium (80: 20) Glow Wire, 4 m.m. in diameter, as per standard. It consists of fine wire thermocouple, 0.5 mm diameter Cr/Al OR 1.0 mm Sensing Thermocouple also being supplied as per ASTM D 6194 for measuring the temperature of the Glow Wire. The equipment is simulated thermal stresses that are produced by sources of heat or ignition for short periods. When insulation is subjected to abnormal condition & can become a fire hazard.


A new model with complete automated Glow Wire Tester having touch screen and complete PLC control and monitoring for Time, Flame time, Force, Current and Exhaust time etc.
The testing device consists of a loop of resistance wire, electrically heated to the for high temperature specified for the relevant standards and maintained under specified pressure & time. A PID digital temperature indicator with controller. The range of this control is 1000 Deg C. An auto current source use also provided with a CT operated ammeter, which is capable of delivering up to 150A for heating in loop. Moving specimen holder trolley pre-loaded with a force of 0.8 to 1.2 N against Glow Wire. Mechanical stopper limits movement of the tip of The Glow Wire in to the specimen to maximum permitted with scale to measure penetration depth. Digital timer for application and flame time Adjustable clamp for holding the specimen under test & Scale for measuring flame height is provided. Excellent temperature control.
