Experimental study on fire-extinguishing of lithium

Furukawa, Tomohiro  ; Kato, Shoichi ; Hirakawa, Yasushi ; Kondo, Hiroo; Nakamura, Hiroo

The EVEDA lithium test loop is constructed at the Oarai Research and Development Center, Japan Atomic Energy Agency. Since lithium is specified as a dangerous substance by a Japanese law, the countermeasure which assumed the lithium combustion incident is indispensable. In this experimental study, the fire-extinguishing behavior of four kinds of fire extinguishers - dryness sand, pearlite, Natrex-L and Natrex-M - to burning lithium was examined. In addition, the effect of depth of lithium pool on the fire-extinguishing performance of the candidate fire extinguisher was investigated to determine the amount of the fire extinguisher placed at the EVEDA lithium test loop.
