DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS OF PROTOTYPE OF A PORTABLE HYDROGEN FIRE DETECTOR.
AIR FORCE AERO PROPULSION LAB WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Pagination or Media Count:
The development of a useful portable fire detector for invisible hydrogen flames is reported. A basic analysis of the infrared versus ultraviolet emission from hydrogen-air diffusion flames is made and the attributes and drawbacks of each system are noted. The ensuing analysis concerns a study of ultraviolet radiation detection and design criteria. A preliminary model of a portable hydrogen fire detector was built, tested and analyzed to prove feasibility. Guidelines for final equipment are given for a field-use detector. Author
