Microscale Combustion Calorimeter

Model MCC-3
Model MCC-3-X (export)

Measures multiple fire properties of micro laboratory scale samples.

The microscale combustion calorimeter was developed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to offer industry a research tool to assist the FAA in its mandate to dramatically improve the fire safety of aircraft materials. The tester is becoming a mainstay in research laboratories due to its ability to obtain meaningful test data with a sample size in the range of 0.5 Mg to 50 mg. The tester has been validated by a national consensus organization (ASTM) and is the subject of an ASTM standards publication.
