AbstractFull-scale experiments were conducted in a simulated electronic equipment room to address concerns about the possible corrosion of electronic components after fire suppression using HFC-227ea (C3F7H). The study evaluated the effect of fire type, size and location on the amount of HF production during fire extinguishment and its distribution in the compartment. The paper describes the test program, facility, protocol, and the results, including concentrations of gas products during fire suppression in various parts of the test compartment.
