Foam Lab test
The Foam test evaluates a lubricant’s stability and foaming propensity. According to the Foam test, lubricants’ propensity to foam can pose a severe issue in systems like high-speed gearing, high-volume pumping, and splash lubrication.
A Foam Concentrate Test Report’s main goal is to enable the customer or laboratory to verify that the foam meets the manufacturer’s specifications while also determining whether the sample of Foam Concentrate that was tested is in a satisfactory state.
Each Foam Concentrate Test Report assesses the following properties:
- All AHUs and ACs in the test room will be turned off.
- The test’s direction will be decided by the tester.
- “Door Fan Test Panels / Plastic Sheet” will be used to seal the door of the room undergoing testing.
- Seal tapes will be used to close any little holes that may exist.
- The Blower Fan for the Room Integrity Test will be mounted on the Panel.
- The power wire and all capillary tubes are attached.
- With the help of the Controller, the Fan is turned ON.
- All design information is input in the room integrity software that is installed on the computer before turning on the fan.
- The pressure in the room has been increased to the test pressure recommended by the software.
- The data for the flow rates and pressure are recorded.
- In a similar manner, the room is depressurized and observations of the pressure and flow rate are collected.
- The Room Integrity software is updated with the reported readings.
- The software will display the room’s anticipated leakage area and retention duration.
- The room passes the test if the retention time is greater than 10 minutes (NFPA 2001:2012 Clause 5.6).
The good news is AITO has capable technician that can possess the required abilities and information.
