I had a formula for calculation of fire load
combustible material in kg * calorific value/area in sq.mts
for one flammable chemical in the work area we can calculate.
But a chemical company process area lot of chemicals we are using
ex: during initial charging reaction time solid material of flammable x 210 kg is used and another y semi solid flammable material of 60 kg is used . during centrifuge time another 100 lts solvent flammable is used. for different chemicals using in different times in process area how to calculate a fire load
Dear Mr. Srimuppala,
Please view the Fire load calculation given in the attachment. For many no. of chemicals used in the plant you may consider...
QUANTITY: The total quantity of all material used in the area
CALORIFIC VALUE: The average calorific value of the all materials (or) if the difference is minimal we may consider the highest calorific value of one any one material.
This justification may serve your purpose...
