Our Case
  • Certified Fire Investigator Training - Lithium-Ion

    Lithium-ion batteries have become very common and have gained attention as a fire/explosion cause due to a number of high profile incidents involving hover boards, e-cigarettes, and battery explosions in aircraft cargo holds. They are used in a wide array of portable electronics and power tools, as well as in heavy-duty applications like electric vehicles and energy storage systems. These batteries typically

  • How do you Extinguish a Lithium Battery Fire? Watts Up

    04/03/2021· Lithium battery fire has three main components: The fire all material in the battery and e.g. the car; All energy charged to the battery (short circuit to sparks and heat) Hydrogen from reaction 2 Li(s) + 2 H2O -> 2 LiOH (aq) + H2(g) and each kilogram of LiOH (Lithium Hydroxide) creates 2800 liters (!!) hydrogen gas! (s=solid, aq=soluble in water).

  • Lack of Fire Training and Lithium-Ion Batteries

    By Lauren Bray, edhat staff A collection of documents released by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) points to lithium-ion batteries and electrical systems as potential sources of the Conception boat's deadly fire, as well as a lack of fire training for crew members. Over 1,677 pages became available Wednesday showing details of NTSB's investigation of an incident

  • How Do You Put Out a Lithium-Ion Battery Fire?

    11/08/2017· Lithium-ion batteries are considered a Class B fire, so a standard ABC or BC dry chemical fire extinguisher should be used. Class B is the classification given to flammable liquids. Lithium-ion batteries contain liquid electrolytes that provide a conductive pathway, so the batteries receive a B fire classification. Why do lithium-ion batteries catch fire? Should you worry about your cell phone

  • DOT/FAA/TC-13/53 Extinguishment of Lithium-Ion and Lithium

    If a lithium battery fire should occur in an electronic device in aircraft can abin, it is important to quickly extinguish the fire and cool the batteries to minimize safety risks. Attempts to minimize these risks have been carried out by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other organizations.

  • Why is a lithium fire worse than a regular fire

    28/02/2020· Another factor adding to the risk of a lithium fire is that lithium batteries have an annoying habit of exploding. Lithium-ion batteries are designed to produce an optimal charge at a minimal weight, which essentially calls for the thinnest possible casings and partitions between cells. This optimization leaves little room for durability, so interior or exterior components of lithium batteries can easily be
