Conditions de formation d'une atmosphère explosive lors de la mise en oeuvre d'un liquide inflammable

Abstract : When employing a flammable liquid, the conditions in which an explosive atmosphere (ATEX) can form depend to a great extent on the liquid itself (flash point, temperature); if the liquid is in an open space, they are also linked to the evaporation flow rate, which in turn depends on the air renewal conditions at the surface of the liquid. An evaporation model has been established from the results of a series of measurements carried out with volatile solvents, where the vaporization flow rate and the vapor concentration at the surface of the liquid were measured. Knowledge of these different features permits the implementation of the ATEX regulations in a precise and realistic way.
