Title Flammability limits of saturated vapors: toluene-oxygen-carbon dioxide mixtures.
Bibliographic information June 1980, Vol.3, No.4, p.293-299. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract The flammability limits of saturated toluene-oxygen-carbon dioxide mixtures were evaluated by a new experimental technique, using a closed stainless steel vessel in which both saturated gaseous and liquid phases are present. The flammability zone was determined in the range 40-120░C and 1-15 bar at different oxygen/carbon dioxide ratios by direct measurement, without the extrapolation procedure necessary when using the classic techniques. The good agreement obtained with the data in the literature shows the effectiveness of this technique, which is simpler, cheaper and safer than the classic one.
