flash points of flammable mixtures (Prode Software)

flash points of flammable mixtures (Prode Software)

(OP)
calculating the flash point (StrFLP method , model PRX, BIPs from Prode datatabase) for 80% C8 20% methanol, I get a value (about 273 K) which is below the flash points of pure fluids (stored in Prode database and in agreement with NFPA), is that normal ?
I have no data for this mixture (to verify the result),
thanks for help.

RE: flash points of flammable mixtures (Prode Software)

you may find some data in M.S. Thesis of Larson (Flash point Depression in Minimum Boiling Point Azeotropic Mixtures, 1998), the author reports a value of about 1 C (274 K) with seems in good agreement with the value predicted,
hoping this helps,
Marco

thanks Marco,
your help is much appreciated

RE: flash points of flammable mixtures (Prode Software)

you may find (measured) flash points also in DDB
there is a online version (a bit expensive in my opinion)
