Provides comprehensive explosibility testing on client-supplied processing dust. ASTM- and CEN-standardized data and analysis helps support safer plant design, safer operating parameters and safer handling procedures that protect expensive equipment and most importantly the people who operate it.
Offers large-scale testing of a client’s sample dust, or comparable dust, within a given application. These tests may be conducted in client-provided equipment or in comparable on-site applications. The Remote Testing Facility also supports Fike’s product development and use in future applications, among other essential responsibilities.
Rigorously tests electrical fire and explosion products before being submitted for UL/FM approval and ultimately being offered to Fike clients.
Equipped with flow rigs ranging from ¼ inch to 4 inch in diameter, two zero-velocity tanks, several sonic nozzles and proprietary software, all designed to provide accurate ASME-certifiable data transferable to real-world pressure relief applications. The Flow Lab also assists in the development of custom-engineered solutions for unique client needs.
