    Numerous tests have been developed to measure fire resistance of industrial fluids. However, few of these tests have been adopted as industry or national standards. Furthermore, little reference information is available illustrating how these tests correlate with specific fire-risk situations. This paper will provide an overview of the various tests that have been reported to quantify the relative fire-resistance of industrial fluids. This information will provide guidance in the future development of fire-resistance specifications for various types of industrial fluids.
