The advanced Flame Test Manikin (Burnie) provides accurate, repeatable measurements of the performance of garments or protective clothing ensembles in a simulated flash fire environment. Thermetrics innovative copper calorimeter heat-flux sensors (126) are integrated into the manikin shell for protection against damage and as per ISO 13506 the manikin is pre-posed and jointed at the shoulders only. Cable connections and manikin support are achieved via a rugged mounting bracket located at the back of the neck for easy dressing and undressing of the manikin.
The Burnie Flame Test manikin shell is constructed from a unique ceramic composite material that is completely fireproof and will not degrade with use.
A modular burn chamber can also be provided that features fireproof construction, a PLC controlled gas delivery and burner network, as well as ventilation and fire safety systems. The chamber includes large viewing windows and a 12-torch burner array.
All systems utilize our proprietary ThermDAC control software with Burn Model, which sets test parameters and incorporates data logging, real time statistics/graphing, and data analysis to automatically process sensor data and calculate the degree and total area of predicted burn injury.
