Worst Case Scenarios Come Alive With Thermo-Man®
This life-sized, fire-proof mannequin is one of the most advanced thermal burn injury evaluation devices in the world! Covered with 122 heat sensors and dressed in test garments, DuPont™ Thermo-Man® helps ensure optimal product performance. Thermo-Man® is a UL Certified test mannequin - the first of its kind developed in conjunction with the US Government to help protect the warfighter from burns.
Since the 1970s, Thermo-Man® tests have been conducted for a broad range of fields, including the petroleum, petrochemical, electric and gas utilities as well as fire services. As different as these industries may be, they all have one common goal: protecting workers from fires. Therefore, we are pleased to help these industries with their hazard assessments so that they have the protection needed for their particular hazard. The mannequin is exposed while wearing various clothing systems, each exposed up to a 4 second burn. At the end, 3 different sets of data are collected & shared:
1. Front & back map of where second and third degree burns occur.
2. The heat flux that is received on the body over time of exposure and amount of heat absorbed by the body.
3. Survivability rate based on an American Burn Association study of different age groups.
Bring your used coveralls for a chance to evaluate the performance of your FR clothing system.
Come see the superior performance of Nomex® for yourself.
