Glovebox Fire Protection: A Literature Review issued by Research Foundation

Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on Sep 14, 2010

The Fire Protection Research Foundation has issued a literature review on Glovebox Fire Protection.

NFPA 801, Standard for Fire Protection for Facilities Handling Radioactive Materials provides fire protection requirements for gloveboxes, which are sealed enclosures for handling certain hazardous materials.  Reports and publications in the literature have appeared over the last half a century, but these are not conveniently summarized in one location.  This study identifies and gathers the pertinent published literature addressing fire protection related concerns for gloveboxes.

The Glovebox Fire Protection study is available for download at no cost on the Foundation website.
