FIELD: measurement equipment.

SUBSTANCE: group of inventions relates to measurement equipment and can be used for testing of fire-resistant efficiency of protective compounds and coatings for timber. The proposed method involves preparation of a specimen, flame action on the specimen, temperature measurement of exhaust gaseous combustion products, measurement of weight of the specimen and determination of weight loss, as per which fire-resistant efficiency is determined. Specimen weight measurement is performed continuously during flame action on the specimen and after the action is completed, and a moment exceeding the limit weight loss established by classification or moment of stabilisation of specimen weight after completion of its burning is taken as a test completion moment. This method is implemented by a device containing a chamber for arrangement of a specimen, a gas burner, an exhaust system with a thermoelectric converter, an instrument for measurement and recording of temperature of exhaust gaseous combustion products. The device is also equipped with a unit for automatic measurement and recording in time of specimen weight during fire tests, which includes a lever mechanism made so that a specimen holder can be installed and connected to a weight measurement instrument connected to the processing and recording unit.

The group of inventions relates to techniques for carrying out experimental studies of the effectiveness of fire protection protective compounds, coatings and impregnations for wood and materials on its basis with the aim of obtaining the classification characteristics in comparative and certification tests, climatic and accelerated tests.

Known experimental setup for conducting trials assessing the effectiveness of fire protection protective compounds and coatings for wood and related methods of assessment and research the effectiveness of protective compounds and coatings.

For example, in GOST 16363-98 and GOST R 53292-2009 given similar in design and methods of tests for evaluating the effectiveness of fire protection on the wood samples of size 150×60×30 mm

In GOST R 53293-2009 (p. 5.4) proposed to estimate the fire-retardant properties on microbranch from 1 mg to 20 mg, taken from the surface of the soaked wood chips in thickness from 0.5 to 1 mm). In this case, the equipment for testing of samples is expensive equipment - derivatograph or thermo analytical complex.

The essence of all these methods is the determination of the mass loss of the test sample treated wood flame retardant.

In some cases, is estimated only the final value changes the assy sample (GOST 16363-98, GOST R 53292-2009) and there is no possibility of tracking changes of this mass during the experiment, and the other (GOST R 53292-2009) it is possible to trace the change in mass of the sample during the experiment, but no flaming effect on the sample, because the very construction of the instruments thermal analysis provides only an impact on the sample heat flow (does not include an external source of flame impinging on the sample). (see "a brief chemical encyclopedia", T. 5, S. 89-91, M: "SE", 1967).

In addition, the method according to the information set forth in GOST R 53293-2009 (p. 5.4)recommended for treated wood only impregnating compositions, and does not provide for testing of wood, with the top layer of fire-retardant coatings (paints, varnishes, enamels, and so on), since in this case to select a homogeneous microabrasion (wood+fire resistant layer) is not possible, which is a significant drawback, limiting the use of this device.

Closest to the proposed technical solution is the installation and the method of testing described in GOST R 53292-2009 "flame retardants and substances for wood and materials based on it. General requirements. Test methods", (p. 6).

The known system includes a removable ceramic box with external dimensions of 120×120×300 mm when the thickness of the wall (16±2) mm, the inner surface of which is covered with a thin aluminum foil for best heat accumulation, a holder for fixing wooden sample size of 30×60×150 mm fire protection within the ceramic boxes on its centre at a distance of (60±2) mm from the gas burner. In the lower part of the boxes in the center comes out the nozzle of a gas burner. Actual ceramic box is mounted on a special stand with air intake holes, and inside the fortified gas burner. Above ceramic duct coaxially him, at a distance of (40±2) mm, there is a metal umbrella of square section with reinforced at its upper, narrow part of the junction thermoelectric Converter for measuring the temperature of exhaust gaseous products of combustion by means of a potentiometer with a measuring range from 0°C to 800°C. the Metal umbrella mounted on a special vertical bar with horizontal rotation to allow for its rotation by lowering the sample in a ceramic box and bring it to its original position upon completion of subsidence (the initial firing tests). The gas flow in the burner is measured by a rotameter and is governed by its needle valve.

There is a method of testing using the known installation will include the basics of the haunted stage:

1) preparation and conditioning of samples of wood with fire;

2) conduct fire tests of samples at the facility;

3) handling of test results and classification of means of fire protection.

During fire tests, air-conditioned weighted sample of wood with fire retardant is fixed in a special holder and placed in a ceramic box with a working gas burner. In a ceramic box sample is exposed to the normalized flame source for a fixed time (2 minutes). After that, the gas burner is shut off and the sample is left in a ceramic box until the temperature of the flue through the umbrella of the gaseous combustion products on the testimony of the potentiometer is balanced with the ambient air temperature. After that, the sample (or what is left of the sample after combustion) are removed from the ceramic boxes and weighed. Determine the mass loss of the sample in % of the original weight before the test. According to the averaged value of the index weight loss (at least 10 experiments) conducted a classification applied remedies.

During firing tests of each sample statement:

1)determines the initial mass of the sample;

2)lowers the sample is fixed to a holder, in a ceramic box with a working burner;

3)control Studio strobe, flash the em and supports the gas flow in the burner;

4)fixes the time of the burner (2 min) and disables it after a set time;

5)monitors the behavior of the sample and the temperature of the flue products of combustion through the reading of the potentiometer during the whole experiment;

6)remove the sample (the remains of the sample) of the ceramic boxes reaching the point when the temperature of the flue gases through umbrella on the testimony of the potentiometer is balanced with the ambient air temperature;

7)weigh the extracted sample (the remains of the sample) and determines the mass loss of the sample in % of its original mass.

The gas supply to the burner in the course of the test is controlled by a rotameter and regulated by the needle valve of the flowmeter. Before each test checks and regulates the flow of gas through the flame height (20±5) m, and then the temperature of the flue products of combustion (idle experience without sample) in the upper part of the umbrella (200±5)°C. Firing tests (GOST R 53292-2009) of the sample is carried out after stabilization of the prescribed gas flow rate and the desired value of the temperature of exhaust gases through umbrella installation.

The air required for combustion gas and other combustible products, enters through the intake holes coasters ceramic boxes.

The behavior of the sample under the fire test is entirely determined by ognezashita the th effectiveness of protective equipment. So depending on the effectiveness of fire retardant means during operation of the gas burner, the sample may not ignite or ignite and go out immediately after its shutdown, or ignite and burn for some time after switching off the source of the flame and then go out, and may continue to burn until complete burnout.

The greater the weight loss of the sample during firing tests, the less effectively applied fireproofing agent.

There is a method for classification of the characteristics of the fire protection means has two limit values of the mass loss of the sample 9% and 25%.

The funds fire protection according to GOST R 53292-2009 providing mass loss less than or equal to 9%, are fire retardant means of the first group of fireproof efficiency, and providing the mass loss in the range of more than 9% to 25% inclusive - group II fire retardant efficiency. The remedies which the weight loss of the sample is more than 25%, the flame retardant tools do not apply.

In the known method test duration test firing of the sample consists of two parts: the first - time operation of the gas burner (2 min) and the second time from off the burner until the temperature of the flue gases will be equal pace is atural ambient air (25±5)°C.

And if the first part of the duration of the experiment strictly rationed, the second one can proceed indefinitely (from several minutes to several tens of minutes). The duration of the second part of the experiment is unpredictable and depends on the nature of self-combustion of the sample. So, if the sample already essentially lost a lot of its original mass, combustion proceeds in the mode of decay, this burning may continue for a long time (see "Fire safety. Encyclopedia", M: FGU VNIIPO of emergency situations of Russia, 2007, p. 69, 360).

The latter circumstance is a significant drawback, since it significantly increases the complexity and unpredictability of the duration of a full cycle of tests taking into account the fact that averaging the data you need to get at least 10 converging values of the experimental results.

Thus, the time spent on "combustion" model with already the actual limit on the mass loss (25%), classification tests will not be productive.

This is because the operator in the known method has only information about the current temperature value of the exhaust products of combustion, but has no information about the current change in mass of the test sample. The absence of these data also severely limits research the possibility of the particular well-known method of testing means of fire protection of wood and materials based on it, because this case is complicated by the identification of the mechanism of action of fire protection at different stages of the processes of ignition and combustion and also increases unnecessarily the duration of the experiment.

Another disadvantage of the known construction of the device and the associated method of testing is that the output nozzle of the burner inside the ceramic boxes, may suddenly become clogged during the test, falling off large particles of wood coke, ash, thermally exfoliated particles of flame retardants. This circumstance, in turn, can lead to changes in the cross-section area of the burner and to break the mode of combustion gas, change the shape of the flame, which, in turn, will lead to the distortion of the test results.

The lack of known valve fitting located as close as possible to the gas burner and immediately overlying the gas supply to the burner causes the effect of additional irregular heat and flame exposure to the test sample due to the combustion in the burner of the residual volume of gas under pressure in the pipe after it is disconnected.

Available on the rotameter needle valve is adjusting and does not immediately turn off gas.

The objective of the invention is the improved design of the installation for carrying out trials assessing the effectiveness of fire protection protective compounds and coatings for wood and materials based on it and its associated method of testing, eliminating the deficiencies noted.

The technical result achieved by the proposed method and installation, is to reduce the time of testing, ensuring the possibility of obtaining complex characteristics for studies of the mechanism of fire protection by providing the ability to track weight changes of the sample during testing.

This technical result is achieved in that in the method of determining the effectiveness of fire protection protective compounds and coatings for wood and materials based on it, including sample preparation, exposure to flame on the sample, measuring the temperature of exhaust gaseous products of combustion during exposure to flame on the sample and after termination of exposure until the end of the test, the measurement of the mass of the sample and determination of the mass loss, which determine the flame-retardant efficiency, according to the invention provide measurements of the mass of the sample continuously during exposure to flame on the sample and after the intervention and at the end of the tests take time exceeding the specified limit loss of mass or moment stabilization of the mass of the sample after the cessation of combustion.

The technical result is also achieved by the fact that the device for determining the flame retardant efficiency of the protective compounds and coatings for wood and materials based on it, contains open from opposite sides of the chamber for placing the sample, a gas burner located underneath the open side of the chamber, located on the top open side of the chamber exhaust system with thermoelectric Converter, a device for measuring and recording the temperature of exhaust gaseous products of combustion and a system for measuring and controlling the flow of gas to the burner, according to the invention provided with a device for automatic measurement and recording time of sample mass during fire tests, including a lever mechanism made with the possibility of installation of the sample holder and associated with the device for measuring the mass connected to the processing unit and recording.

In a preferred embodiment, the lever mechanism is attached to the pivoting bearing fork lever, fork ends of which are fixed cradle for placement of the sample holder, and the opposite part is the balancing device and is connected with a device for measuring mass.

In addition, the gas burner nozzle preferably has a protective mesh cap made of heat-resistant stainless metal alloy.

In addition, the system of measuring and regulating the gas supply to the burner preferably includes a rotameter and faucet set is Lenna between the burner and the rotameter.

The ability to track weight changes of the sample during the experiment allows not only to carry out the classification efficiency of the fire protection means for the final values of the mass loss of the samples, but also get along with this additional important information - characteristics of the mass change of the sample from the time course of the experiment. When comparing the dependences of the mass change of the sample over time with the same dependence of a change in temperature of exhaust gases there is an opportunity to get a comprehensive kinetic characteristics of the process of combustion fire-protected wood that is of interest to analyze the mechanism of fire protection.

In Fig.1 shows the proposed installation to determine the effectiveness of fire protection protective compounds and coatings for wood and materials based on it (the General view, front view), and Fig.2 is a view of the device in side view and schematic diagram of the interconnection of the core node device for the automatic determination of the mass of the sample during the experiment; Fig.3 is a schematic diagram of fork lever mechanism in working position in combination with a ceramic box, a sample holder and the sample (top view), and Fig.4 is a fragment of a nozzle of a gas burner with protective mesh cap.

Installation to determine the effectiveness of fire protection the safety of structures and coatings for wood and materials based on it contains the following main elements: the camera in the form of an open top and bottom ceramic boxes 1; gas burner with 2 worn on its output nozzle protective mesh cap 3; rectangular stand under 4 box 1 with the intake holes on the sides and a hole for the burner 2, which is installed inside the base 4 so that its output nozzle placed at the bottom of the box 1; a holder 5 for holding the sample 6 of wood in a ceramic box 1; a lever mechanism in the form of a fork lever 7 with the cradle for holding the holder 5 of the sample; an exhaust device over the duct 1 in the form of a metallic umbrella 8 square cross section for removal of combustion products with fortified in its narrow upper part thermoelectric Converter 9 for measuring the temperature of exhaust products of combustion; a vertical rod 10 for mounting and rotation of the umbrella 8; a system for measuring and controlling the flow of gas to the burner 2, which includes the flowmeter 11 gas with a needle valve to regulate gas flow to the burner 2 and the ball valve 12 to turn off the gas and flame gas burner 13 2.

The inner surface of the removable ceramic boxes 1 is covered with a thin aluminum foil to better ensure the accumulation of heat by the sample 6 in the tests.

Device to automatically determine and record the mass of the sample during fire testing includes system uravnovesen the th lever mechanism in the form of a fork arm 7 of tool steel, fixed in the rotating axial support 15 with a low coefficient of sliding. Open-end portion of the lever 7 has on each of the two ends is coaxially fixed to the cradle 14 for retaining and fixing the holder 5 of the test sample 6 of wood in the form of a horizontal axial rod and the inner distance between the two ends of the fork must provide for free passage into her ceramic boxes 1. The opposite part of the lever mechanism 7 is made in the form of a shoulder with an adjusting screw (not shown) for balancing the system in the initial position and has the drive to the device for measuring the mass - automatic electronic laboratory scales 16. The scale 16 is equipped with a locking system original position in an idle state and have the ability to reset the sample, and an interface for transmitting and processing data on the computer 17 is connected and thermoelectric Converter 9 for measuring and recording time temperature of exhaust gaseous products of combustion.

The sample holder 5 when the experiment is fixed with the upper open side of the ceramic box 1 on two lodgments (right and left) 14 fork arm 7 and does not apply ceramic boxes 1, but provides the location of the sample 6 in a ceramic box 1, similar izvestno installation. A lever mechanism 7 is balanced and secured in a pivoting bearing 15 which is free to rotate in the vertical plane. Efforts arising from the mass of sample 6 wood, when the tests are passed via a lever mechanism on the laboratory scale 16. Data on the change in sample mass 6 and the temperature of exhaust through umbrella 8 products of combustion through the interface and transmitted to the computer 17 and processed as composite charts: the mass of the sample is a function of time 18, the temperature of the gaseous combustion products is a function of time 19.

Dimensions, design, device and method for fixing ceramic boxes 1, umbrella 8, stand 4, the burner 2, sample 6 in the holder 5, rotameter 11 correspond to the known device.

Additional ball valve 13 mounted on the gas-feeding pipe between burner 2 and a rotameter 11 as close as possible to the burner 2 directly in front of the stand 4, allows you to quickly turn on after 2 min exposure to the flame of the burner 2, because with this arrangement, the valve 13, the gas volume, free flowing and in a gas-feeding tube after closing the gas valve is extremely minimal and there is no effect of the subsequent uncontrolled "afterburn" significant remains of the gas in the burner.

Internal distance Lv between the two forks (see Fig.3) lever 7 is installed from the trace of the subsequent ratio:

Lv=Lk+2s,

where s=10±5 mm gap between the inner surface of the fork arm 7 and the outer surface of the ceramic boxes 1, providing convenience when measuring the mass of the sample 6 and eliminating interference;

Lk - width (external) ceramic boxes 1.

The height h of the protective mesh cap 3, put on the output of the burner nozzle 2 (see Fig.4), is set equal to the outer diameter of the exit nozzle of the burner D, because under these conditions, protective mesh cap 3 will be the most cool part of the flame and not be perekachivanii (Great Soviet encyclopedia, T. 7, S. 224-225, 3rd ed., M: "SE", 1972) and at the same time to have the necessary slope, providing rolling with it particles of coke.

The device operates as follows.

Before the tests are set up and operation control lever mechanism in combination with the weights 16. This produces the control definition of the known mass of the sample 6 on the holder 5 is placed on the cradle 14 of the horizontal and balanced fork arm 7. The coincidence of the control mass with an indication of the weights 16 a system for determining the mass of the sample is ready for testing. In case of discrepancies in the testimony of mass of the system is governed by the balancing lever mechanism and adjustment of the weights 16.

p> Next, check the height of the flame of the burner 2 and the temperature of the flue products of combustion when the burner 2, as well as on the well-known setting. Then the weighted sample 6 of wood fire protection fixed to the holder 5. Then take away the umbrella 8 and the sample 6 is dipped into the center of the cross section of the ceramic box 1 with a working gas burner 2 so that the rod holder 5 stood up simultaneously on the right and on the left the cradle 14 of the fork arm 7, which previously brought into balance with the availability of the holder 5 (without sample) and recorded. Further, at the same time return to its working position the umbrella 8, include scales 16 with the removal of the fixation lever mechanism and record the readings thermoelectric Converter 9 and the mass of the sample 6 to the computer 17 in the form of graphs 18 and 19.

Upon completion of exposure exposure to the sample gas burners (2 min) turn off the gas supply to the burner 2 ball valve 12 and continue measuring and recording settings on the computer.

Classification tests of the fire protection means the end of the experiment after 2 min exposure to the burner on the sample occurs when one of two conditions:

a) the sample has lost a lot larger than the classification limit values according to the testimony of weights 16 on the chart 18 (see Fig.2), regardless of the tempo of the atmospheric temperature, defined under the direction of thermoelectric Converter 9 on the chart 19, (see Fig.2);

b) the sample is not illuminated (the temperature of the flue gas products on the testimony thermoelectric Converter 9 in the umbrella 8 drops sharply), the mass of the sample 6 on the testimony of weights 16 on the chart 18 is stabilized (not changing with time) (see Fig.2).

Classification of fire protection means and the evaluation of the averaged test results of the proposed installation is in compliance with the applicable standard.

The table below shows examples of the implementation of the proposed method of testing in comparison with the known and the results obtained for samples of wood - pine, treated with a known flame retardant MS (see "Ways and means of fire protection of wood: a Manual", M.: the Institute of fire prevention, 1994, S. 21-24).

In all these examples (see table PP.1-4) preparation and conditioning of samples mounting of samples in the holder, the adjustment and setting of the gas supply to the burner in the flame height and temperature of the waste gaseous products of combustion and the duration of operation of the gas burner, the method of lining with aluminum foil inner surface of the ceramic boxes correspond to GOST R 53292-2009.

In a known method of testing for known installation (see table p. 1 and p. 3) led monitor and record the temperature of Kodama combustion products (GOST R 53292-2009), but in the proposed method, the proposed installation (see tab. p. 2 and p. 4) in addition, in the course of the experiment automatically measured and were recording the mass.

From the table it is seen that in the case of applying the proposed method and installation are obtained adequate and comparable with GOST R 53292-2009 results for final evaluation of the effectiveness of the flame retardant composition. So, at a flow rate of flame retardant 500 g/sq. m (see tab. p. 1 and p. 2) the data obtained in both cases correspond to group II of fireproof efficiency and at a lower flow rate of 200 g/square m fire resistant tool does not provide the required level of fire protection (see tab. p. 3 and p. 4), because the weight loss of the samples greater than 25%.

At the same time testing if the proposed installation and its associated method of testing is greatly reduced because the operator during the test has the ability to track, in the course of the experiment, indications of changes in the mass of the sample and to complete the experiment in optimum time.

In addition, you can save the received data in the computer's memory and instant processing of test results.
