2023-05-16 11:54

In recent years, the use of various new materials has made household products more and more diversified, and all walks of life are meeting the needs of consumers with higher performance and aesthetics. However, as consumers' requirements for quality of life continue to improve, the safety and reliability of household products have also become important considerations for consumers when purchasing. As a manufacturer, how to ensure the safety of products and meet market demand is one of the important tasks.


The needle flame tester was born for this purpose. It is one of the tools for manufacturers in the R&D and production process. It can conduct comprehensive and accurate safety testing on products, and it is also one of the tools to protect the interests of consumers.

First, let's understand how it works. The needle flame tester puts the product sample on a special sample holder, and then uses a given fire source under specific conditions for testing. The ignition source is usually a 1 mm wide sparkler stick, which is placed at the bottom of the sample, and then the combustion characteristics are observed according to the time set in the test protocol. By recording parameters such as burning time, flame size and smoke generation, a comprehensive assessment of the safety of the sample can be carried out.


So what do these parameters represent? First, the burning time refers to the time during which the sample continues to burn under the action of the fire source. A short burning time usually means that the sample burns well, while a long time may indicate that the sample contains flammable components and cannot meet safety requirements. Second, the size of the flame can reflect whether the sample is over-burned, which can lead to other safety problems. Finally, smoke production is the concentration of smoke produced by the combustion of the sample, which may cause environmental and health problems if exceeded.


So, what characteristics should a good device have? First of all, the test sample holder should be able to meet the test requirements of samples of different sizes and shapes. Secondly, the test process should have complete data recording and storage functions, which is convenient for data analysis and backtracking. Finally, the test instrument should be easy to operate without excessive training costs, so as to improve test efficiency and reduce operation errors.

In the face of a wide variety of household products, it is undoubtedly one of the most commonly used tools for hope manufacturers. For example, it can be used to test sofa seat cushions, loose cushions, plastic frames of small kitchen appliances, wires and cables, and more. Through use, manufacturers can better understand the performance of product materials, so as to better control quality and meet consumer demand for products.


In conclusion, the needle flame tester, as one of the necessary tools to protect the safety of consumers, plays an important role in the manufacturer's safety encounter diagnosis and product design process. This tool can not only effectively protect the rights and interests of consumers and ensure the safety of products, but also allow manufacturers to produce better and safer products to meet consumers' needs and improve economic efficiency.
