Abstract

For the safe handling of n-pentadecane, the lower flash points and the upper flash point, fire point, AITs(auto-ignition temperatures) by ignition delay time were experimented. Also lower and upper explosion limits by using measured the lower and upper flash points for n-pentadecane were calculated. The lower flash points of n-pentadecane by using closed-cup tester were measured $118^{\circ}C$ and $122^{\circ}C$. The lower flash points and fire point of n-pentadecane by using open cup tester were measured $126^{\circ}C$ and $127^{\circ}C$, respectively. This study measured relationship between the AITs and the ignition delay times by using ASTM E659 apparatus for n-pentadecane. The experimental AIT of n-pentadecane was $195^{\circ}C$. The calculated lower and upper explosion limit by using measured lower $118^{\circ}C$ and upper flash point $174^{\circ}C$ for n-pentadecane were 0.54 Vol.% and 6.40 Vol.%.
