Temperature resistance tests, drop tests on non-deformable surfaces

Trater makes its plants available to inspection bodies to perform hot resistance tests on all those components that will have to work in areas subject to fire risk in the off-shore, energy, civil transports (Mont Blanc directive), chemical and mechanical engineering industries.

Typically the components tested by engineering companies are:

fire boxes, tested up to 1200°C;

fans, tested at maximum power in the oven up to temperatures up to 400°C;

shutters, for which their kinematics and correct closing are tested up to 700°C;

insulating materials, tested up to 1200°C, even with direct flame.

The reference specifications of the tests are typically:

UL 1709 tests;

A754 tests;

EN 12101 tests.

Trater also makes the ovens available to companies that want to pre-test their materials, before any tests attended by inspection bodies or before going abroad to carry out definitive tests at laboratories accredited by individual oil or construction companies. For each test, thermometric recording of the points of interest is provided, with certified probes and instruments, calibrated every three months.

Since 2021, in Trater an area is available to test the resistance of components to falling (Drop Test), of components with a mass even greater than 20 tons. This test often follows or supports temperature resistance tests of the same components. The data collected is completed with high-speed video recordings, deformation measurements with strain gauge technique, accelerations’ measurements, etc… Our experts make our know-how available to engineer the tests in accordance with the reference regulations.

Trater guarantees the confidentiality of the processes. Participation during the tests is limited to the installation of the temperature sensors in the agreed points, the recording of data and the management of the heating systems. On the most valuable components, subjected to severe testing and with tests supervised by third-party bodies, it is important that our customers can count on a structured and reliable supplier like Trater, which has personnel and means available to best perform every commissioned job.

The Trater workforce has more than 50 employees. The heart of the company is the technical office with 12 people including specialists, quality officers and engineers in the energy, aerospace, materials and mechanical fields, with specializations in the modeling of thermal systems; we make available all our experience gained over years of designing our systems, which operate daily at temperatures up to 1200°C, with heating and cooling rates of up to hundreds of degrees/hour.
