IDM Instruments Develops Horizontal Flame Chamber

Australia-based IDM Instruments Pty Ltd. – a supplier of testing and measuring instruments – has
introduced a Horizontal Flame Chamber for measuring the comparative burn rate of certain materials
used in cars, trucks, buses and multipurpose vehicles.

The easy-to-clean stainless-steel chamber has a large heat-resistant glass window for
observing tests, and its side-door-mounted gas burner makes the unit easy to light. According to
the company, samples are easily loaded into the U-frame sample holder that resides under the
lift-off top cover. The Horizontal Flame Chamber’s controls are housed in a stainless-steel
electrical cabinet to make testing quick and simple.
