MCL`s seal systems have been independently tested at accredited third party test houses. For hydrocarbon fire applications, test criteria is governed by the Mobil high rise hydrocarbon fire time vs. temperature curve for periods of two hours, in accordance with the requirements of the Department of Energy, the International Conference on the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). For jet fire hazard scenarios, testing is carried out in accordance with the international standard BS ISO 22899-1:2007, formerly governed by the HSE test standard OTI 95 634.
Throughout testing, MCL`s systems have maintained their integrity, stability and insulation properties and accordingly carry certification issued by either Lloyds Register of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas or the American Bureau of Shipping.
In addition to fire testing, the Firetex range of penetration seal systems have been subjected to independent blast over pressure testing and have proved their ability to maintain stability and integrity in blasts of up to 1.35 bar g.
