BS ISO 10294-5 pdf download Fire resistance tests — Fire dampers for air distribution systems — Part 5: Intumescent fire dampers
This part of ISO 10294-5 describes the test requirements related to intumescent fire dampers. lt identifies theminor modifications needed to adapt the test method described in ISO 10294-1 (which was intended formechanical dampers) to suit intumescent fire dampers. Additional tests are included to give an assessment ofthe operational reliability of intumescent fire dampers.
This test is intended for intumescent fire dampers that are expected to be classified as El dampers inaccordance with ISO 10294-2. Without the addition of a mechanical damper, they are unable to achieve theS” classification, which includes a leakage limit imposed at ambient temperatures.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 1 3943 and the following apply.
term describing the phenomenon of expansion in excess of normal thermal expansion under the action of heat normally generated by the fire
intumescent fire dampers
non-mechanical device, installed in a ducted system that intumesces when exposed to hot gases and acts as a barrier to fire and hot smoke
intumescent material manufactured in rigid or flexible thin sections, typically 1 mm to 4 mm thick, usually cut into strips for incorporation into the fire damper
partly enclosed intumescent material to provide protection, modify the behaviour, improve the surface finish and/or enhance the aesthetics of the fire damper
skinned intumescent material
totally enclosed intumescent material on all faces and edges to provide protection, modify the behaviour and improve the surface finish and/or the aesthetics of the fire damper
specially shaped intumescent
intumescent material formed into special contours by extrusion, dipping, moulding, machining or spraying onto formers or mandrills
4.1 General considerations
The apparatus for the fire test shall be as described in ISO 1 0294-1 :1 996. As intumescent dampers give off some moisture, a suitable condensing device shall be installed before the flow-measuring device. This will be deemed to be effective if the gas temperature within the flow-measuring device does not exceed 40 °C at any time during the test.
