An Improved Strontium-Based Aerosol Fire Extinguishing Agent with Potassium Additives
An improved strontium-based aerosol fire extinguishing agent with potassium additives was fabricated, which was followed ‘oxygen balanced’. A series of extinguishing tests showed that the fire extinguishing efficiency of the agent was improved relative to a commercial sample. The results of secondary damage tests indicated that the alkalescence of solution which absorbed solid particles generated by the agent rose a little. The corrosion resistant of copper in the aerosol was better while the iron was available with corrosion to some extent.
