To ensure the functional safety during developement and approval of explosion protection systems, explosion tests have to be performed. Components, units, housings or explosion protection systems will be put to acid tests at the RTC.
Research, validation or certifcation of the test object can be performed during resepective developing phases. For certification of protection systems the whole process will be performed with consultation of a Notified Body.
Following standards and appropriate procedures are in acc. with the accreditation DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018.
Examinations under special process technologic conditions
Due to high pressure resistances (PN 16/25) of our test equipment, test under non atmospheric conditions (e.g. increased process pressure) can be carried out. Examinations under special process technologic conditions are a specialty of RTC due to decade-long experience in the field of explosion protection.
Varius test media to verify the requested application area (Intended Use) are available.
Dust explosion test on protection systems can be carried out with dusts from ST1 up to ST 3, metal dusts, fabric dusts or melting dusts (e.g. requirement of DIN EN 16009).
Gases of explosion group I (e.g. Methane), IIA (e.g. Propane), IIB (e.g. Ethylene) or IIC (e.g. Hydrogen) are permanent on stock. Generating hybrid mixtures of different compositions to meet customers requirements is possible with this wide portfolio.
