Emission from Fires Part 1: Fire Retarded and non fire retarded TV sets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The results of detailed measurements of the emissions from simulated fires with TV-sets are presented in this article. Results from both small- and full-scale fire experiments with flame retarded and non-flame retarded TV-sets are discussed. The measurements cover a broad range of chemical species including specific fire retardant agents and both chlorinated- and brominated dibenzodioxins and furans. The results from similar measurements, but in this case from simulated room fires, can be found in part II in this series of articles.

The methodology applied for the measurement of this large range of fire gases is presented in this article. Further, the sampling and analysis methods common for both the TV fires and the simulated room fires are described in detail in conjunction with the experimental results from the TV fires. Additionally, recommendations are made concerning good practice when conducting fire gas determinations of similar complexity.
