ALEXANDRU MARIAN PULBERE LABORATORY TEST RESULTS FIRE SAFETY CONVEYOR BELTS Testing of fire safety is based on the premise that a band should not be a fire, it would be hard to ignite and if was ignited by an external source of fire should not flame retardant. While fire resistance specifications vary from country to country, formulated to meet any fire performance specifications in the world. Tests on conveyors to assess their compliance with fire safety standards are: Drum friction test: The danger associated with a stalled belt and a driven rotating drum or pulley resulting in frictional heat build up. Laboratory flame test: The possibility of igniting the considerable mass of a conveyor belt with a relatively small ignition source. Gallery fire test: The possibility of a belt, ignited from a larger ignition source, spreading the fire to other areas (often referred to as fire propagation). Electrical resistance test: The possible build-up and subsequent discharge of static electrical charge on moving conveyors.
