Abstract:

It has been proposed that the mechanism of inhibition by halogens in hydrocarbon flames involves an increase in ignition temperature with a consequent prolongation of the preignition zone. An examination of this hypothesis was undertaken by a systematic investigation of the effect of a number of well-recognized burning velocity inhibitors on the ignition of hydrocarbon mixtures by hot wires in a 35 mm quartz tube. Data are reported for ignition temperature as a function of additive concentration for methane andor propane mixtures with oxygen and nitrogen at ambient temperature and pressure.
