Calorific value determination of building materials and other fire safety testing

It’s a key safety and legal requirement to deterin the calorific value / energy content of any materials used in the construction and buildng industry. When the worst happens and a building catches fire, companies want to minimise the ferocity that the materials burn with. Parr calorimeters are used for testing new building materials to be used in future construction and also the content of waste material after demolition. This is the key criteria for the fire safety testing industry.
