FAA VFP Apparatus

The Concept FAA Vertical Flame Propagation Apparatus is intended to be used to determine the propensity of materials to propagate flames. An electric radiant heat furnace is mounted vertically and opposite to the test sample, a 152mm x 305mm coupon. A gas/air bespoke ribbon burner impinges on the lower portion of the test sample, initiating material combustion, while the sample is continuously exposed to a radiant heat flux from the furnace. The burner flame is withdrawn automatically from the test sample at a pre-determined time, and the test is allowed to continue until all material combustion has ceased. The sample is removed from the test frame, and a post-test burn length measurement is made. The burn length is the only parameter used to determine passing or failing.
