Our calibrated hot box is one of the largest in the country accepting test assemblies up to 9’x16’. Its design allows any orientation from fully vertical to fully horizontal with heat flow in either direction. Temperatures as high as 150°F or as low as 20°F are possible.
Our ASTM C518 thermal conductivity tests are run in our LaserComp Fox 600 machine, or one of our three Rapid K machines. The Fox accepts test specimens 24”x24” by up to 8 inches thick. The Rapid K machines use test specimens 16”x16” by up to 6 inches thick.
To evaluate loose fill insulation materials, Home Innovation Labs employs a Unisol Volu-Matic III commercial blowing machine.
