Abstract:

A four-phase test program was conducted using Halons 1011 CB, 1211, 1301, and Halon Foam to determine which of the latter three would be a suitable replacement for 1011. The four phases consisted of determining agent concentraton in fixed volumes under quiescent and ventilated conditions agent decomposition products analysis under these same conditions, but with a four pound cotton fire load agent throw range and agent effective range against class A and B fires. Within the constraints of this program, 1211 was the most effective agent during effective range testing and 1011 the least effective. Author
