Associated testing and certification of appliances

The technology used in gas appliances is becoming increasingly complex. The numerous combustion technologies and wide range of electrical as well as electronic equipment require comprehensive knowledge as well as a thorough review of the interaction of components and processes. To optimise approval processes, the Test Laboratory Gas offers gas appliance testing as a complete package. Testing extends to all components and materials as well as safety devices, electrical safety and electromagnetic phenomena. The Test Laboratory Gas leading collaboration in standardisation committees ensures a high level of expertise and knowledge of the current state of the art.
