Abstract:

The design, testing, and evaluation of fire extinguishers based on halon 1301 bromo trichloro methane is described. The results indicate that 1 halon 1301 is approximately twice as effective as carbon dioxide in the extinguishment of liquid hydrocarbon fires 2 a mixture of halon 1301 and CO2 promises to be as effective as halon 1301 alone and 3 design of 15- and 30-pound extinguishers for specific use with halon 1301 is feasible.
