Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has designed and built a new airframe/engine seal fire test facility located at its manufacturing facility in Northborough, Massachusetts in the U.S. This state-of-the-art fire test facility addresses aerospace manufacturers’ growing need to meet varyious fire test requirements in order to comply with industry and customer standards for vibration and air flow. Trelleborg is one of only a few seal manufacturers that deliver comprehensive in-house qualification testing, now including fireproof and fire resistance testing.

The investment made to commission the extensive capabilities of this testing facility will enable specific tests to be conducted for customers with a variety of qualification requirements, such as ISO/TR 2685, which calls for vibration and flame exposure of 1100 degrees Celsius / 2000 degrees Fahrenheit for fifteen minutes without allowing flame penetration or other defined failure modes.

The new Fire Test Facility features a multitude of test rigs specific to aerospace seal applications. This will allow Trelleborg to assist customers in developing the ideal qualification test plans and procedures with customers picking which tests they need to have as proof of the capabilities of their products. Such a modular approach will help speed up response & development time while keeping costs down. Typical applications for the new test facility could include aircraft interiors, engine fire seals and ancillary components such as oil pumps and hydraulic systems.”
