Cone calorimeter is an instrument used in the field of fire testing. Cone calorimeter test is the best method to measure the reaction of material to fire. The instrument is used to determine the behavior of material. The cone calorimeter test makes possible to evaluate smoke production, ignitability, toxic gas production, and combustibility of material. The method reacquires minimum sample and this makes the cone calorimeter an attractive and ideal tool during early development and production stages. A sample is loaded on a load cell which measures the mass loss rate of the sample during combustion. The heated sample ignites the volatile gas and an electrical spark. The pressure, smoke, and temperature reading is recorded manually or automatically by the device to calculate heat release rate. The combustion gases are then collected in the accompanying duct and exhaust hood. The cone calorimeter is a cost effective test as it requires small amount of sample and saves cost of transportation of material. This is a safe, fast, and accurate method, and it can test multiple samples at one time. Apart from product development, the cone calorimeter test can be used as quality control tool.
The cone calorimeter system contains basic units such as conical heater, temperature controller, specimen holder, load cell, exhaust system, oxygen analyzer, and heat flux meter. The system is also embedded with software and data acquisition unit. Mass loss calorimeter, carbon dioxide and monoxide are the optional analyzer for the cone calorimeter test.
