Glow Wire Test Apparatus

Glow Wire Test Apparatus is used in various industries to carry out the flammability test to check the Resistance to Fire of electrical insulators as specified in IEC 60695-2-10 2000-10. This apparatus is basically used to check the materials that touch directly the conducting parts and also parts of insulators. By this glow wire test apparatus, the actual conditions are simulated as closely as possible to find actual fire hazards. This test is also referred in many other standards such as IS 11000, IS 3854 : 1997 / IS 1293 :1988 / IS 371 :1999 & IS 11000 Pt 2 Sec 1, IEC 60335, IEC 884/94, IEC 60598, IEC 61058, BS 6458, BS EN 60695 2-10,11,12.
