CRR 383/2001 - Joint industry programme on carbon monoxide issues:

An analysis of full scale data to assess factors affecting vitiation associated with gas appliances

Analyses the results obtained from five different series of tests conducted by BG Technology during which atmospheric gas sampling was carried out within single and multiple room enclosures where a gas appliance was operated under fault conditions and in so doing contributed towards the vitiation of the combustion air supply. The data indicates a critical band of oxygen concentrations in the combustion air supply within which the rate of production of carbon monoxide increases significantly. The implications of this are discussed including the possibility of using oxygen sensing in a room as a pre-warning to an occupant of a dangerous situation.

Some of these research reports are very large. For information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
