Ni, X., Chow, W.K., Zhang, Shaogang , Zhao, Mei, Zheng, Zhong and Wang, Xishi, 2014. Combining Bromofluoropropene with Water Mist for Suppressing Deep Seated Wood Crib Fires. Fire Safety Science 11: 1236-1246. 10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.11-1236
Application of 2-bromo-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (BTP) with water mist in suppressing deep seated wood crib fires was reported in this paper. Performance of the combination of the two clean fire suppressants was examined by laboratory scale experiments and compared with water mist and BTP used alone. Results showed that coupling of water mist with BTP could extinguish the wood crib fires with high efficiency, in which BTP discharged first could fast extinguish the flame, and the following water mist could cool the wood surface and stop glowing combustion. As a result, a complete fire extinguishment without re-strike was achieved in short time. Furthermore, hydrogen fluoride (HF) acid gas produced in the suppression process was acceptable for the use of water mist in conjunction with BTP.
