HVFAA Horizontal Vertical FAA Flame Chamber

  • Overview +

    The Atlas HVFAA Horizontal Vertical Flame Chamber provides the most accurate means for determining the flammability of aircraft cabin and cargo compartment materials, liners and waste stowage compartment materials, and electric wire. The large volume chamber prevents oxygen depletion during tests. Three digital timers with remote control make specimen event timing precise and convenient. To ensure accurate and repeatable tests, an optional burner flame temperature verification kit is available. The HVFAA is the optimal instrument for conducting repeatable FAA flammability tests and is used in the FAA’s training facility.
