During the development of AVD, there have been a large number of test fires done to fine tune the product and application technique required for use of AVD. This Video Gallery is a selection of some of the tests done during the development and highlights a range of fire sizes, equipment used and application methods.
This video shows the application technique for AVD Mist on a Magnesium fire using a portable unit. This is the safest, most effective and efficient way to use AVD on this type of fire and these are the recommendations of Dupré Minerals based on the numerous test fires done to date.
This video shows the application of AVD Mist vs Class D Powder on a Magnesium Powder Fire Test
A 200kg test fire of 99% Purity magnesium powder being extinguished in a fixed system.
A 15kg test fire of 99% Purity Magnesium powder. AVD in a standard extinguisher utilising a fine misting nozzle to extinguish the fire
A 15kg test fire of 99% Purity Magnesium powder. AVD in an AFT Backpack utilising a fine misting nozzle to extinguish the fire
A water mist extinguisher is used on a 15kg 99% purity Magnesium fire to prove that water mist fuels the fire and does not extinguish it. AVD foam is then used to effectively extinguish the fire.
In conjunction with North Staffs Fire, AVD is used to extinguish a car fire using a portable backpack. After extinguishing is complete, the re-ignition properties are demonstrated.
A 5kg test fire of Magnesium Swarf on a concrete base. AVD foam in a trolley unit is used effectively to extinguish the fire.
A small lithium ion battery fire showing AVD mist vs Water mist. AVD is used effectively to bring the fire under control.
A 60kg test fire of mixed Lithium Ion Batteries. AVD mist in AFT backpack is used effectively to extinguish the fire.
