About European EMC Products
The activities of European EMC Products (EEP) focus on the provision of specialist, bespoke electromagnetic shielding and blast protection related products and services across the UK, Europe, The Middle East and Asia.
Their fully integrated shielding protection packages; which include the manufacture of Blast Resistant Doors, Gas Tight Doors, EMP Filters and Blast Resistant Valves aid in the protection of defence and critical national infrastructure systems and comply with all known UK, NATO and international security and performance standards. Namely; EEP’s high specification Gas Tight Doors protect against specific threats, including radioactive, bio-hazardous and industrial by-products and are designed for both commercial and military applications.
EEP were seeking a method to demonstrate and test the effectiveness of the gas tight door seals. A full exploration in to the customer’s needs were conducted, and a product concept was developed.
Icarus’ product development team proposed a system that could test the performance of the door seals through pressure testing, by constructing an inflatable gas holding compartment tailored to fit the doors specific dimensions. The system is fitted to the door and air inflated to a predetermined test pressure; the test is then conducted. The inflated system should maintain a consistent pressure and a pressure loss indicates a leak in the door seals which allows for troubleshooting and adjustments to the seals to ensure a gas-tight fit. Icarus provided EEP with the calculations to validate testing procedures.
“As well as being a pleasure to work with, the technical team at Icarus had a solid understanding of our requirements and were able to advise us on the best strategy to test the effectiveness of our Gas Tight Door seals. Their professionalism and knowledge surpassed all expectations and we wouldn’t have any hesitation in using them again in the future.”
