Abstract:

Halon 1301 has been determined to be effective in suppressing the combustion of ethylene in a nitrogen trifluoride enriched atmosphere. Approximately 6.5 halon 1301 is required to extinguish a laboratory model ethylene-air flame. For each 1 nitrogen trifluoride enrichment, 0.88 halon 1301 is required for extinguishment. Additionally, in explosion tests halon 1301 is capable of significantly reducing the severity of the reaction. Author
