Needle Flame Tester is designed according to international standards IEC60695-2-2 and IEC60695-11-5.The instrument applies for lighting, low-voltage electrical equipment, household appliances, electrical machines, motors, power tools, electronic equipment, electrical instruments, electrical connectors, accessories and other electrical and electronic equipment and parts, component research, production and quality control departments and insulating materials , plastic or other solid combustible materials industry to carry on small-flaming ignition experiments.
Needle flame apparatus uses standard size (Φ0.9mm) needle burner .and burns the sample with specific gas (butane) at the angle of 45 °.
It determines the ignition risk of the small-flame caused by fault conditions in the equipment by testing the sample burning situation,burningtime and burning length
It is made of stainless steel:the hole dia. 0.5mm ± 0.1mm, diameter≤0.9mm, length≥35mm
Burner flame angle
0- 45 ° (arbitrary adjustment)
The combustion gases
95% butane gas or propane gas
white pine plank ( 10mm),
Surface covered by standard silk paper
200mm ± 5mm below the flame
