Abstract:

The minimal ignition temperature, explosion pressure, the rate of its increase, and the lower and upper concentration levels of explosibility, and ucl are determined. The concentration limits are determined by establishing the moment of admission and the concentration of particles in the initiator zone of the gas suspension which accompanies it. The work examines the results of studies on the above characteristics for pyrophore and explosive powders of reduced iron and electrolytic titanium.
