With the growing concern of fires or explosions resulting from processing or handling hazardous material, it is important to characterize the flammable properties of that material.  The flammability properties of fuels have been extensively studied for many years and are relatively well understood.  Essentially, there are three elements required for a fire or an explosion to occur:

  • a fuel
  • an oxidizer
  • an ignition source
