The Chemistry Of Fire Reel-1
A fire is fought on the deck of an aircraft carrier. Laboratory experiments are used to illustrate and describe the vaporization of burning articles and show the fire flash points of various substances.
The Chemistry Of Fire Reel-2
Shows the low flash point of volatile liquids and uses laboratory experiments and animation to illustrate oxygen must be present in addition to vaporization to create combustion. Shows and describes the operation of an oxy-acetylene torch for cutting metal. Illustrates the danger of gasoline vapors.
The Chemistry Of Fire Reel-3
Laboratory experiments are shown to explain and describe ignition temperatures and illustrate how a fire is started when there is fuel vapors, oxygen, and ignition. Animation is used to show how a fire can be caused by static electricity or an oily rag. Shipboard fires can be caused by bomb explosions, shrapnel piercing fuel lines, and ignition of paint and bedding.
The Chemistry Of Fire Reel-4
Animation is used to describe a fire can be extinguished by cutting off oxygen or reducing the temperature of the fire below the ignition point. Describes the use of carbon dioxide, steam, and foam to extinguish fires. Shows fire crews fighting various types of shipboard fires.
The Chemistry Of Fire Reel-5
Shows fires can be extinguished by high-pressure streams of water, by immersion in water, and by flooding. More scenes of fire crews fighting shipboard fires.
