Oxidising Solids Test Apparatus

This apparatus is designed to test for the potential of a solid substance to increase the burning rate, or burning intensity, of a combustible substance when the two are thoroughly mixed. The test is to the UN Transport of Dangerous Goods Manual of tests and Criteria (Test O.1) and is used to establish whether a product is an oxidizer of division 5.1 or not and, if so, whether it falls into packing group I, II or III.
