There are two key links in the wire and cable manufacturing industry, namely theAluminum conductors steel-reinforced production link and the wire and cable testing link, especially the wire and cable testing link. This is the last stop for quality control and a comprehensive assessment of the performance of wires and cables.
The burning test of the cable is an extremely important one of its many tests. The national cable performance classification has special grade requirements for it, such as the number GB/T31248-2014. This standard divides the burning of the cable into 4 grades, A Class (non-flammable cable or optical cable, equivalent to metal sheathed cable or optical cable), Class B1 (flame-retardant B1 cable or optical cable, equivalent to halogen-free low-smoke flame-retardant cable or optical cable), Class B2 (flame-retardant B2 cable or Optical cable, equivalent to low-halogen, low-smoke flame-retardant cable or optical cable) and Class B3 (ordinary cable or optical cable).
Especially for fire-resistant and flame-retardant special cables, the burning test is a very important test for their professional performance. These fire-resistant and flame-retardant cables are required to have certain flame-retardant properties, and they must also have a certain flame-retardant performance. The characteristics of normal operation for a certain period of time, so the burning test is also a test of the performance of this type of cable.
In addition, there are a number of data for various combustion conditions. The values need to be tested. For example, the heat release rate of the cable is the heat energy released by the combustion of the cable within a certain period of time under the specified conditions. This value is the normal combustion of the cable. Detect the data, and the value of the data will be affected by many factors, such as the combustion state, and the amount of non-metallic materials.
There is also an average heat release rate, which refers to the average heat release rate within 30 seconds. The average heat release rate during the combustion process is also a value that changes with the continuation of the combustion time. The peak heat release rate is the maximum value of the average heat release rate during the entire combustion period. The standard stipulates that the combustion time is 1200 seconds, which is the maximum value among the 40 average heat release rates. This value is related to the combustion state of Aerial Bundled Cable during combustion. If the flame is particularly large in a certain period of time within 1200 seconds, the peak heat release rate may not meet the requirements. The total amount of heat release refers to the integral value of the heat release rate within a specified time.
The various test data of the cable in the flame combustion can reflect the performance and influence of the cable in the flame, and can fully reflect whether the cable is qualified and up to the standard, and whether the fire performance of the fire-resistant cable meets the requirements, these are extremely important Therefore, the burning test is also one of the routine tests of wire and cable manufacturers.
