    versus chamber size. Although the lower flammable limits (¿FLs) are well defined for methane (CHj and propane (C3Hh), the LFL\ for hydrogen (Hj and its heavier isotope deuterium (D-.J are much more dependent on the limit criterion chosen, A similar behavior is observed for the upper flammable limit .   A detailed comparison of the obtained results with the experimental data on flame acceleration in methane-air mixtures is given. In particular, it is confirmed that flames propagating in near-stoichiometric mixtures and mixtures near the limits of inflammability belong to the types II and I, respectively, whereas flames in transient mixtures.

    Any mixture of methane and air will therefore lie on the straight line between pure methane and pure air - this is shown as the blue air-line. The upper and lower flammability limits of methane in air are located on this line, as shown. The stoichiometric combustion of methane is: CH 4 + 2O 2 → CO 2 + 2H 2 O. The range of inflammability was found to be greatest in mixtures containing no air, being 29% of ammonia for upward propagation, 56% for horizontal propagation and 60% for.

      The dependence of the lower flammability limit on the initial temperature is studied experimentally and numerically for upward flame propagation at a pressure of MPa. It is shown that the Burgess and Wheeler rule, implying a linear dependence of the lower flammability limit on the initial temperature with the intersection of the temperature axis at the point °C, does not hold for N2 Cited by: 1. Mixtures of dispersed combustible materials (such as gaseous or vaporised fuels, and some dusts) and air will burn only if the fuel concentration lies within well-defined lower and upper bounds determined experimentally, referred to as flammability limits or explosive tion can range in violence from deflagration, through detonation, to explosion.

First edition, August, cf. verso of t. The limit is considerably dependent on conditions. Table 2 shows results for ethylene - [- air mixtures in which all major components have approximately the same mo- lecular weights.

For the lower limit the results range from to and for the upper limit from 15 Cited by: 2. Because of the lack of flammability limits at low temperatures, in this study, an experimental setup was built to measure the flammability limits of methane/air mixtures at a wide temperature range from K to K and pressure range from MPa to by: The observed upward limit for methane-air mixtures ( pct) was less than the widely accepted lean limit for this fuel; those for lean hydrogen-air mixtures and carbon monoxide-air mixtures did not differ from the lowest accepted values.

Diffusional effects on the propagation of single, binary, and ternary fuel mixtures are discussed. The influence on flammable limits of four inert gases, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, argon, and water vapor are also shown.

Methane forms explosive mixtures with air and the loudest explosions occur when one volume of methane is mixed with 10 volumes of air (or 2 volumes of oxygen) (Windholz et al., ).

Air containing less than % methane no longer explodes. There a some references on the effect of pressure on the lean flammability limit.

Here's what [1] says: For a methane-air mixture, the percent of methane limits are and at 10 atmospheres. At atmospheres, the limits are and percent methane. The gas mixture from a leakage will not be homogeneous and lighter gases concentrates along the ceiling.

Heavy gases concentrates along the floor. Ventilation, natural or mechanical, must be sufficient to limit the concentration of flammable gases or vapors to a maximum level of 25% of their "Lower Explosive or Flammable Limit" (LEL/LFL).

The best way I know is to get hold of the data from the Bureau of Mines on explosion limits of various gases in 02 enriched mixtures. I had to do this for an atmospheric ethane tank that we were purging out and I needed to confirm that the procedure the contractor proposed would not take us through the flammability region (basically, purging with N2 partway and then switching to air but they.

Mixtures of dispersed combustible materials and oxygen in the air will burn only if the fuel concentration lies within well-defined lower and upper bounds determined experimentally, referred to as flammability limits or explosive limits.

Combustion can range in violence from deflagration through detonation. Limits vary with temperature and pressure, but are normally expressed in terms of volume percentage at 25 °C and atmospheric pressure. These limits. CLXXIV.—The dilution-limits of inflammability of gaseous mixtures.

PRESSURE-INFLAMMABILITY LIMITS OF PROPANE-AIR MIXTURES By Frank E. Belles SUMMARY A preliminary investigation was made of the wall effects on the pressure-inflammability limits for flame propagation in propane-air mixtures. Pressure limits were experimentally determined for: (1) quiescent mixtures in glass tubes of different diameters (51, 38, 32,Cited by: 1.

Several H 2/O 2 mixtures were ignited after different times of diffusion and at different locations of the cloud. Moreover Guélon has performed numerical simulations to File Size: KB.

Lower and Upper Explosive Limits for Flammable Gases and Vapors (LEL/UEL) Before a fire or explosion can occur, three conditions must be met simultaneously. A fuel (ie. combustible gas) and oxygen (air) must exist in certain proportions, along with an ignition source, such as a spark or flame.
