Ignition and Flammability Properties of Lubricants 680323
The ignition temperature and flammability properties of combustible fluids are useful in determining safety guidelines and in assessing the fire or explosion hazard that may exist in the environment where the fluids are employed. This report is a compilation and review of such information for over 90 lubricants and hydraulic fluids. Particular emphasis is given to those fluids used in aircraft applications. Data are presented for petroleum base fluids and purely synthetic fluids in air, oxygen, and oxygen-nitrogen atmospheres at pressures for 1/8-1000 atm.
