HUGE FIRE TEST ROOM

 
Comprising a heat resisting structure, the test facility facilitates large scale fire tests with temperatures of up to 100MW. During fire tests, temperature, pressure, flow rate of the extinguishant and oxygen density are monitored and recorded by computer at several points.
This equipment perfectly satisfies guidelines on fire tests specified in MSC Circ.668, the IMO's latest requirement.
   

Kashiwa's Inside Air High Expansion Foam System was certified by major classification societies following the completion, in their presence, of efficacy testing in the large scale fire test facility in accordance with the Circ.668 guideline.
Kashiwa also markets inside air high expansion foam systems after accumulating a comprehensive knowledge of their performance and reliability from the results of a variety of tests conducted using this facility.
