Hong Kong Society for Quality (HKSQ) organized a study mission to visit ZhaoQing Asia Aluminium Factory Co., Ltd. (肇慶亞洲鋁廠有限公司) and Leading Edge Construction Materials Testing Co., Ltd (領鋒建材檢測有限公司) on 21 & 22 Jan 2011. America Society for Quality (ASQ) was supporting organization.
In the second day, we visited Leading Edge Construction Materials Testing Co., Ltd. It was only 3 degree Celsius (°C) in the morning!
Mr. Gavin Yi (Laboratory Manager) introduced different testing to us included:
l Performance test for building facade
l Fire resistance test for building materials
l Performance test for fixed fire fighting systems
l Performance test for building materials
After that we went outside to a large testing chamber for demonstration. Mr. Thomas Tsang (General Manager) explained the testing background to us.
Inside the testing chamber, we observed some gauges to measure deflections of the structural members under load during the test.
It demonstrated the water penetration test on site.
The aircraft propeller was used for dynamic water penetration test. It was able to produce 56.8m/s wind speed (about 2kPa wind pressure).
We took a group photo in front of the Mock-up Testing Chamber which is made of reinforced concrete with 130.6m Long times 30m High dimension.
Inside the test centre, many different fire resistance tests were performed in here.
It demonstrated the flat vertical furnace which was used for testing fire resistance properties of glazed door set or timber door set.
It tested the load bearing column assembly.
It demonstrated the fire resistance test of the flat-plate photovoltaic modules and panels.
I represented HKSQ to present souvenirs to Mr. Thomas Tsang (General Manager).
And presented to Mr. Michael Fan (QA Manager).
Also presented to Mr. Gavin Yi (Laboratory Manager).
We had taken a group photo in Leading Edge Construction Materials Testing Co., Ltd.
We left at noon and saw some goats in truck.
It had some time that we decided to visit the Seven-Star Crags for 1 hour.
It was wonder that the Star Lake National Park had achieved ISO 14001 certification.
The ISO 14001 certification was shown.
We hired a golf car to visit Seven-Star Crags.
Some photos were taken for sharing.
It was a nice trip and we all had more understanding on Aluminium industry and construction testings.
