We are proud to introduce our latest innovation in advanced testing solutions – the new series of Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) Chambers for enhanced plastics testing. This cutting-edge line of instruments has been carefully designed to precisely measure the combustion performance of a wide range of materials, including plastics, rubber, fibers, foamed plastics, films, textiles, and wood under specified test conditions.

As industry leaders, we understand the critical importance of fire safety testing for combustible materials like plastics. The LOI test has proven to be the most economical and precise quality control method, making it a primary characterization and quality control tool for the plastic materials and electric cable industries.

By accurately determining the minimum oxygen concentration required to sustain combustion, our new QualiLOI chambers provide valuable insights into the flame retardancy of polymers, serving as an essential tool for material evaluation and research.

Highlighting the New LOI Chamber Series from Qualitest

Our new LOI Chamber series comprises two cutting-edge models, each designed to cater to the specific needs of laboratories and testing facilities.

1. Limiting Oxygen Index Chamber QualiLOI

The QualiLOI is an economical and versatile instrument that offers precise evaluation of combustion performance across a wide range of materials. This basic Limiting Oxygen Index Chamber accurately determines the volume percentage concentration of the lowest oxygen level at which the polymer sustains combustion.

Key features of the QualiLOI include:

  • Utilization of modern oxygen sensor technology for automatic oxygen percentage concentration acquisition
  • Digital display with 0.1% reading accuracy
  • Precision gas flow valves for accurate oxygen and nitrogen flow adjustment
  • Adjustable oxygen percentage step length with 0-0.2L/Min accuracy
  • High-temperature resistant quartz glass cylinder
  • Gas igniter device with adjustable flame length and gas cutoff function
  • Compliance with ASTM D2863, ISO 4589-2, and NES 714 standards

2. Automatic Limiting Oxygen Index Chamber QualiLOI-Auto

The QualiLOI-Auto is an advanced model that offers precise measurement of minimum oxygen concentration during specimen combustion. Equipped with a highly accurate Paramagnetic Type oxygen sensor, this chamber delivers exceptional precision, durability, and reliability.

Highlights of the QualiLOI-Auto include:

  • Oxygen sensor accuracy < 0.1%
  • Touch screen interface for setting oxygen percentage concentration with automatic adjustment
  • Digital display of nitrogen flow rate and mixed gas flow rate
  • One-click setting for automatic ratio display of oxygen percentage concentration
  • Advanced programmable controller for precise control
  • Mass flow controllers for optimized air and nitrogen circuits
  • Faster response times with optimized gas pipeline design

Both models in the new series of LOI Limiting Oxygen Index Chambers are designed to provide accurate, reproducible, and convenient testing capabilities, serving as reliable tools for identifying flame retardancy in polymers and enabling research purposes.
