      For example, evaluating the hot surface ignition temperature (HSIT) of a spilled liquid fuel (e.g. gasoline, diesel fuel, brake fluid, etc.) is a complex phenomenon that depends on a multitude of variables including, but not limited to, residence time on the surface; surface properties such as geometry, size, and roughness; environmental factors such as air temperature, humidity, and airflow. • The ignition of a single battery produces enough heat to ignite adjacent batteries • Halon is ineffective in suppressing a lithium battery fire • Batteries of the same type but from different manufacturers exhibit varying flammability characteristics.

[S H Graf]. Results obtained by different investigatorsfor ignition temperatures show wide discrepancies. As Brown (1) has indicated, the different values reported may be due to the specific test conditions associated with the methods employed, and also to the different interpretations among investigators as to what consti-tutes “ignition temperature.” 2.

It is shown that the ignition temperature is around C for wood exposed to the minimum heat flux possible for ignition, and that it invariably ignites, at least initially, in a glowing mode under these conditions.

The ignition temperature rises rapidly as the heat flux is by: The book includes black-and-white figures, tables, and color plates. The Handbook is divided into two main sections: Chapters 1 through 13 include presentations of the fundamental principles of ignition sources and of the response of ignitable materials to heat or energy in various by: The ignition temperatures of various common materials were detected by means of a photothermal analysis apparatus.

The sample is heated in a tube furnace which is programmed at a linear heating rate; a photomultiplier tube located at the end of the furnace tube is used to detect the ignition by: 8.

All temperatures are in degrees Celsius and it is noted there exists some discrepancies in the literature of the various physical constants of materials and so the temperatures and constants should be treated as approximates. INDEX OF TABLES. TEMPERATURES AT FIRES.

Babrauskas concluded in his analysis that the short term ignition temperature of wood is around ºF. In this present paper, we want to empirically demonstrate that wood.

So if u have a piece of paper and a thin slice of wood, I’m pretty sure they’ll catch fire at around the same time. temperature range of ° to ° C.

spread of data is clearly enormous. It might first be noted that even the term ‘ignition temperature’ tends to mean two different things: (1) the temperature of the surface at the time of ignition; or (2) the minimum temperature of a furnace sufficient for a specimen put therein to ignite.

The paper presents an analysis of the minimum ignition temperature of dust layer and the minimum ignition temperatures of dust clouds.

Long-leaf wood has the fastest ignition time at this temperature, taking about 14 minutes to ignite. RF Temperature Corrugated board requires particular temperature, humidity/moisture and possibly ventilation conditions (SC VI) (storage climate conditions).

Chemical cellulose is usually pure cellulose as other non-cellulosic compon. Fortunately, one of the features on most irons is a sliding scale that indicates the correct temperature setting for different types of fabric.

While all irons differ slightly in temperature settings depending on the manufacturer, follow the recommendations on this chart as a basic guideline of proper temperatures for ironing different types of. FLAMMABILITY OF FIBERS. Information regarding the flammability of fibers is presented in the table below.

These figures, however, should not be taken as guides to fabric performance as other factors such as construction, surface characteristics, dyes, finishes, other fiber components and moisture content must be considered.

IGNITION OF CELLULOSIC PAPER AT LOW RADIANT FLUXES Summary The ignition of paper samples by low level thermal radiation is investigated herein. At flux levels below 10 Watts/cm 2, other investigators (Simms, Weatherford) have observed that autoignition of paper does not occur.

A typical room fire starts when a building material (i.e wood, plastics) is exposed to an external heat (ignition) source.

No laboratory work was included in investigation.

The ignition and burn factors of fabric are also affected by the weight and weave of the fabric.
