Lastly, test IP X9K can be performed using a high-pressure lance attached to a swivelling arm in the test chamber. The hot water required for this test is heated up to 80°C in a 100-l-capacity stainless steel container before it strikes the test specimen – 100 mm away – from out of a flat spray nozzle at a pressure of 90 bar. The various test types can be set, monitored and documented through a PC control system.
|Test type||Test duration||Test conditions|
|IP X3||10 min||Spray water, angle of impact variable up to 60° from vertical.|
|IP X4||10 min||Spray water from all directions.|
|IP X5||3 min||Water beam (12.5 l/min) on the revolving test specimen.|
|IP X6||3 min||Pressurised water beam (100 l/min) on the revolving test specimen.|
|IP X9K||30 secs per position||High-pressure water beam with 80°C in four positions (0°, 30°, 60°, 90°) on the test specimen.|
