Fire Resistance of Industrial Fluids

Editor(s): George E. Totten, Jurgen Reichel

Comprehensive, international overview of traditional, current and newly proposed fire resistance testing methods for industrial fluids.

14 peer-reviewed papers from leading researchers in the field address the following industrial fire prevention issues: Fundamental principles of fire resistance testing • New testing procedures that will dramatically impact the fire-resistant ranking of hydraulic fluids both in the USA and abroad • Previous and current testing methodologies and limitations • Spray flammability tests Innovative testing methodology • Potential toxicity of fluid combustion by-products • Pool fire burning modeling and characteristics.

A critical resource for fluid manufacturers, turbine oil and hydraulic fluid suppliers, users of fire resistant fluids in mining, aerospace, steel and automotive industries, maintenance engineers, testing laboratories, insurance companies and government agencies responsible for fluid test and selection.
