Spray fire tests with hydraulic fluids

Holmstedt, Göran LU and Persson, Henry (1986) In Fire Safety Science, Proceedings of the First International Symposium. p.869-879
Abstract
Two test series simulating the hazards associated with the accidental release of hydraulic fluid near a source of ignition have been carried out with six hydraulic fluids; mineral oil, organic ester, phosphate ester, water in oil emulsion and two polyglycols in water solution. The flame length, temperature and radiation and the auto-ignition temperature were measured. The correlation between the two test series regarding rates of heat release between 1 and 20 MW was very good. As a result a test method is proposed.
