Flammability Contract Testing

We can assist in establishing flammability limits for gases and vapors at temperature and pressure conditions of interest. The testing services we offer include:

  • Lower Flammability Limit (LFL) and Upper Flammability Limit (UFL) at ambient conditions
  • Lower Flammability Limit (LFL) and Upper Flammability Limit (UFL) at elevated temperature and pressure conditions
  • Flash point testing – determine lowest temperature at which a flammable liquid can form an ignitable mixture in air
  • Autoignition temperature evaluation
  • Flammability propagation tests – to determine if a material can propagate a burn
  • Determine the Limiting Oxygen Concentration (LOC) for a single for multi-component mixtures at ambient or elevated temperatures and pressures
  • Construct flammability envelopes for single and multi-component systems at various temperature and pressure conditions
