Abstract:

A hazards evaluation was conducted to identify and determine the magnitude of hazards in full-scale blending of Violet Smoke Mix IV by the Jet Airmix Process. Subscale and full scale blending tests and critical mass and thermal ignition tests were conducted to determine the effects of geometry on sub-scale and full scale tests. Results indicate that hazards associated with mixing Violet Smoke Mix IV are minimal.
