AbstractTrifluoroiodomethane (CF3I) is an environmentally acceptable streaming fire suppression agent for non-residential applications. Determination of the potential level of human exposure to CF3I and its thermal decomposition products (TDP) during fire suppression is important for health and safety assessments. Streaming fire suppression tests were conducted using handheld CF3I extinguishers. Operator's exposure to fire gases was simulated during the tests by measuring gas samples in the operator's breathing zone. This paper presents the results and findings of these tests.
