Regardless of whether the combination of air and gas is explosive, it relies upon the air-fuel proportion. For each fuel, ignition happens within a specific concentration range called the upper and lower flammability limits. For instance, for methane and gasoline vapors, the range is 5-15% and 1.4-7.6% of the gas to air, respectively. There will be a possibility of an explosion to happen when the fuel concentration is within these limits. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
