IFAB’s mobile mea­sure­ment sys­tem for fire tests is a unique fea­ture, is flex­i­ble and mod­u­lar and makes fire tests pos­si­ble in var­i­ous loca­tions as need­ed. IFAB owns an in-house devel­oped and expand­able mea­sure­ment sys­tem.

• Gas tem­per­a­tures,
• Sur­face tem­per­a­tures,
• Heat flux,
• Oxy­gen and var­i­ous smoke gas­es (car­bon monox­ide and car­bon diox­ide, HF, HCI etc.),
• Sys­tem pres­sure of fire-fight­ing sys­tems and extin­guish­ing sys­tems,
• Mass loss,
• Flowrate of gas­es and liq­uids,
• Vis­i­bil­i­ty and humid­i­ty,
• Vis- und IR-video sys­tems,
• Con­duc­tiv­i­ty,
• Volt­age and pow­er as well as
• Deter­mi­na­tion of heat release rate with real time eval­u­a­tion.

IFAB also owns spe­cial­ized equip­ment for car­ry­ing out smoke tests with either hot or cold smoke, giv­ing exper­i­men­tal evi­dence on the per­for­mance of smoke man­age­ment sys­tems. We use inter­nal pro­ce­dures to ensure repro­ducible and retrace­able mea­sure­ments. The plau­si­bil­i­ty of test results is checked by the reg­u­lar cal­i­bra­tion of the mea­sure­ment sys­tem, the ver­i­fi­ca­tion of mea­sured data and the val­i­da­tion of stan­dard­ized and not stan­dard­ized test pro­ce­dures.
