The system was developed by Gen3 Systems (formerly Concoat Systems) in collaboration with the world-renowned British National Physical Laboratory (NPL). It is used to conduct tests in both SIR and CAF (Cathodic [Conductive] Anodic Filamentation) investigations.
Trace Laboratories has all of the resources and experience necessary to discuss, develop, perform, and interpret SIR testing and its results. When developing an SIR testing strategy, the product or process selected for testing will help determine the most appropriate SIR test method as well as determine the most applicable test vehicle.
The Model 717 Franklin Tester provides a means of testing single strips or punchings of flat rolled electrical steel, for surface insulation resistance under predetermined conditions of voltage and pressure.
