Dec 11, 2013

Dekra has opened its first test laboratory for process safety services in Shanghai, China. Chilworth Technology, a Dekra Company, now provides testing services in China including testing of powders/dusts, liquids and gases for their flammability and combustibility, thermal stability and electrostatic properties. These tests provide the necessary data for the assessment of flash fire and explosion hazards associated with the handling and processing of flammable substances.

The tests will be conducted according to the applicable ASTM and/or ISO standards with standard operating procedures  identical to those used at Dekra’s laboratories in the U.S. and UK.
