the flammability curves for UDMH-air-Halon 1301 The neat UDMH does require somewhat more Halon 1301 at all concentrations than does 80-20 mixture; differences are small, and again Halon 1301 was superior to nitrogen at low fuel concentrations. Table 1 compares requirements for three fuels. Table 1 using recycled Halon 1301 to fulfill the present and future Halon requirements of the U.S. domestic aircraft fleet from now until2020 and beyond. Technical and analytical support in the characteristics and physical properties of Halon 1301 were provided by Mr. Dan Moore and the Chestnut Run Laboratories of DuPon agents. Clearly, all of the mixed agents containing halon 1301 have the ratios less than 1.0 over all the range of inert gas fraction. On the halon 1301-argon mixed agent, the ratio, Cobs/Ccalc, decreases to 0.9 at the argon mole fraction of about 0.8, and then it approaches rapidly to the minimum value 0.77 at argon mole fraction of 0.97 Halon is a class of halogenated chemicals containing bromine. When released to the atmosphere it has a high ozone depleting potential. Halon is a fire suppressant agent found in both fire suppression systems (Halon 1301) and in hand held Fire Extinguishers (Halon 1211). This is the most effective extinguishing agent available
The most favored Halon for fire extinguishers is Halon 1301 which involves electronic equipment. The key reason is that it leaves behind no residues and does not lead to damage to any electrical equipment. Halon gas examples are Halon 1211 and Halon 1301. These act as both greenhouse gases and depleters of atmospheric ozone 4.1.2 Halon 1301 shall conform to the requirements pre-scribed in Table 1 when tested by the appropriate test meth-od(s) listed in Section 6. 4.1.3 When a material analysis is required, by agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, the total pressure in the Halon 1301 container, partial pressure of the N2, the ﬁll densit Upon entering areas with possible unfriendly fire, Halon 1301 is injected into the fuel tanks for one-time use. Due to environmental concerns, trifluoroiodomethane (CF 3 I) is being considered as an alternative. Alternatives Alternatives to Halon 1301 in fire extinguishing systems are being deployed
However, we suggest due to its structure, similar to CFCs and generally stabilizing properties of the CF 3 ‐group, Halon‐1301 is not likely to be microbially degradable in oxic waters, but may be degradable in anoxic waters [e.g., Plummer and Busenberg, 1999 ] • Due to these unique properties, Halon 1301 served as a near ideal fire suppression agent for more than 30 years. • One drawback was that of human tenability. • Due to its implication in the destruction of stratospheric ozone, the Montreal P t l f 1987 id tifi d H l 1301 b f thProtocol of 1987 identified Halon 1301 as among a number of othe Halon 1301 Fire Suppression System Inspection. Because of Halon 1301′s powerful ozone depleting properties, the EPA has very strict laws pertaining to the inspection and maintenance of Halon 1301 fire suppression systems It is, therefore, desirable to use a suitable simulant in these tests in view of the stratospheric ozone problem and current and future regulation of Halon 1301. Sulfur hexafluoride, SF6, and chlorodifluoromethane, R-22, were identified as candidate simulants on the basis of their similarity in physical properties to Halon 1301

Due to their unique combination of properties, halon systems provided protection of valuable and sensitive assets in a wide range of applications, including th 10 We previously and unexpectedly identiﬁed the presence of Halon-1301 (CBrF3) within modern water samples. Our paper immediately following this discovery (Beyer et al., 2014) details this identiﬁcation, discusses known Halon-1301 properties, and suggests this compound might have potential as a new, complementary groundwate With the demise of Halon 1301 as a clean, gaseous fire extinguishing agent for total flooding applications, two classes of replacement agents - inert gases and halo-carbons - are now commonly used because of their cleanliness, effectiveness, and non-conductive nature. In addition to these desirable properties, it is essentia
Halon 1301 (bromotrifluoromethane) is especially favoured for extinguishing fires involving electronic equipment because it leaves no residue and does not cause electrical short circuits or damaging corrosion of the equipment.

Halon 1301 does not suppress fire by the usual methods such as cooling or smothering. Instead, halon thermally decomposes near the flame front at temperatures above 900°F (482°C). Halon extinguishes fire as a result of chemical interaction with the fire by -products. In a properly designed system, the decomposition products of halon are.
Halomethane compounds are derivatives of methane (CH 4) with one or more of the hydrogen atoms replaced with halogen atoms (F, Cl, Br, or I).Halomethanes are both naturally occurring, especially in marine environments, and man-made, most notably as refrigerants, solvents, propellants, and fumigants Sulfur hexafluoride, SF6, and chlorodifluoromethane, R-22, were identified as candidate simulants on the basis of their similarity in physical properties to Halon 1301 FM-200™ is listed as an acceptable replacement for Halon 1301 and Halon 1211 in the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program.

About Halon 1301; Halon 1301 weighs 1.58 gram per cubic centimeter or 1 580 kilogram per cubic meter, i.e. density of halon 1301 is equal to 1 580 kg/m³; at 20°C (68°F or 293.15K) at standard atmospheric pressure.In Imperial or US customary measurement system, the density is equal to 98.636 pound per cubic foot [lb/ft³], or 0.9133 ounce per cubic inch [oz/inch³] HFC-227ea/N2, FC-3- 1-1O/N2, HFC-23m2, HFC-23, HFC/HCFC/N2 blends, Halon 1301, and SF6. The model has been compared to over 200 discharge tests and a wide range of flow conditions and piping geometries. The experimental agreement for HFC-227ea, FC-3-1-14 and Halon 1301, which were most extensively tested is as follows
The production of Halon 1301 was banned in 1993, a direct result of its negative effects on the ozone layer. We engineered INERGEN to be environmentally kind from the very start. INERGEN is nonsynthetic, made exclusively of gases we already breathe: nitrogen, argon, and carbon dioxide Bromotrifluoromethane, commonly known as Halon 1301, R13B1, Halon 13B1 or BTM, is an organic halide with the chemical formula C Br F 3.It is used for fire suppression and refrigeration. Human exposure to Halon 1301 can be toxic, affecting the central nervous system and other bodily functions
Much early research with Halon 1301 was conducted under the auspices of the US Armed Forces, while Halon 1211 was, initially, mainly developed in the UK. By the late 1960s they were standard in many applications where water and dry-powder extinguishers posed a threat of damage to the protected property, including computer rooms. Halon-1301 as groundwater age tracer. 25 Overall we found Halon-1301 reliably inferred the mean residence time of ground- water recharged between 1980 and 2014 Its thermo-physical properties (McLinden et al., 2015) are compared with Halon 1301 (Elliott et al., 1984) in Table 3. These properties play a fundamental role in the development of the spray, widely discussed by Reitz and Bracco (1982). and this will be shown later in this work , and especially Halon 1301 (CBrF3) have been widely used as fire extinguishing agents and well known for its low toxicity and high efficiency, the latter being accounted to the bromine content
FM-200 emerged as the first primary replacement for Halon, based on both its effectiveness and its Ozone-friendly and non-toxic properties. FM-200 is stored as a liquid and dispersed as a vaporized gas, and works by absorbing heat and snuffing flames via a combination of chemical and physical reactions Table 1: Properties of non Ozone Depleting Extinguishing Agents Name FE-13™ (HFC-23) FE-25™ (HFC-125) FM-200™ (HFC-227ea) FE-36™ (HFC236fa) ITM BTM BCF Chemical Formula CF 3 H CF 3 CF 2 H CF 3 CFHCF 3 CF 3 CH 2 CF 3 CF 3 I CF 3 Br CF 2 ClBr Halon No. 13 25 37 36 (13001) 1301 121
Halon 1301, a fire extinguishing agent with many advantages, has a fatal disadvantage: it is a kind of halogen compound that destroys the ozone layer. The Montreal Protocol for the protection of the ozone layer prohibits the production of Halon 1301 in most countries, and it has been continually unavailable except for essential uses Halon 1301 is a chemical gas with properties that make it an ideal extinguishant; however, its position within a family of chemicals that can damage the Earth's ozone layer led to it being phased out of production in January 1994 under the terms of the Montreal Protocol Assessment of Halon-1301 as a groundwater age tracer M.

Bromo(trifluoro)methane. Identifiers CAS Numbe Bromotrifluoromethane, commonly known as Halon 1301, R13B1, Halon 13B1 or BTM, is an organic halide with the chemical formula CBrF3. It is used for fire suppression. Relative to other fire suppressing agents, such as bromochloromethane, it is far less toxic T he analyzer uses the thermal conductivity properties of Halon 1301 and Carbon Dioxide to measure the concentration of either Halon or Carbon Dioxide in air. There are three independent channels in the analyzer that monitor simultaneously three sample points. Sampling is through three 50′ [15.25m] lengths of tubing with a motor-driven pump drawing a gas/air sample into the unit for analysis Calculations are performed for laminar counterflow nonpremixed flames using complex chemistry and detailed transport properties. It is found that the addition of halon-1301 increases the peak temperature of the flame and causes little change in the concentrations of stable species
