Test protective garment performance 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.
Simulate flash fire environments 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.
