Difficulties experienced using ASTM Method E 582-88 for determination of minimum ignition energies of compounds more difficult to ignite than simple hydrocarbons are described along with remedies for overcoming those difficulties. Minimum ignition energies and associated quenching distances are reported for four hydrofluorocarbon compounds using a modified Method E 582-88 apparatus and procedure.
