Understanding the chemical and physical properties of materials during combustion leads to improved materials and better public safety standards. An important aspect of Fire Science is the analysis of Smoke Toxicity, which measures how poisonous or caustic the products of combustion are under different burn conditions.
In this webinar gas expert, Jay Roberts, shares how New European railway/transportation regulations (EN 45545-2) impact testing techniques for dangerous acids such as HCl, HBr, HCN, and HF. In addition, discussion on how safe is your mode of transportation in the event of a fire and how online FTIR spectroscopy can provide multi-component analysis of toxic gases released during combustion events.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Understanding EN 45545-2 requirements for smoke toxicity analysis
- On-line FTIR spectroscopy as an alternative to single-component analyzers or GC methods
- Key sampling and data collection parameters required for accurate FTIR gas analysis
Who Should Attend:
- Fire Safety Science researchers
- Polymer development chemists
- Lithium Ion Battery Researchers
- Contract Laboratories (Environmental)
- Continuous Emissions Monitoring (CEM) engineers
