Abstract:

The feasibility and effects of applying dry chemical fire suppression agents at very high rates were explored with a series of cascade and pool type jet-fuel fires. Powders were dispensed at conventional rates with hand held extinguishers and at high rates with a rocket motor type disseminator. Typical discharge conditions with the high speed disseminator are described, along with fire sizes and effectiveness.
