Testing is required to verify if a product meets a specific standard. It is carried out by independent laboratories in various countries.
MCT Brattberg use the following labs:
Most of the testing we do is for fire resistance, however there is also a requirement for:
In order that a ship may sail in international waters or a platform may drill for oil, it must meet the requirements of “The International Maritime Organization (IMO).
The IMO Regulations for our product is debated by the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) committee.
SOLAS dates back to 1913, when the first convention was held to discuss the sinking of the RMS Titanic. (Ice Watch, Radio and Lifesaving Equipment)
The basics of the tests are the same.
Fire test procedure code is a book of procedures. In it are details how to fire test such items as;
The code book refers the reader back to the IMO standard. What is a fire test?
The standard for Cable Transits is 2010 FTP Code MSC 307 (88).
This standard replaces IMO 754.
Cable and pipe transits must have features that make them safe in a variety of hazardous applications to protect people, environment – including intellectual property like computer data – and to help ensure the continued operations of a business or other organization.See more
The design, materials, construction and finish of frames play decisive roles in determining the safety of frames in withstanding constant stress in maritime and land-based environments.See more
Before working with insert blocks, cable management has to be carried out. Basically, this means that all cables passing through frames must have enough movement to allow them to be positioned correctly to facilitate fitting the insert blocks.See more
For first-rate insert blocks, a lot of thought and good science goes into what may at first seem a simple transit component. But the performance of blocks is a key element in assuring the safety of cable transits.See more
No matter how many safety features are built into the components of cable and pipe transits, they can only be realized through correct installation. This means that transits must be complemented with training to maximize the safety awareness in all stakeholders.See more
