Other measuring for local requirements

In addition to testing for CE marking, we also perform other testing, for example total hydrocarbon, nitric oxides and particle emission testing. These are required in many countries in Europe. For the heat admission of heat retaining stoves testing, which is a required test for German markets, VTT Expert Services Ltd has built a calorimetric test space according to the German directions.
