The explosive atmosphere may be caused by flammable gases / vapours or combustible dust. If the amount of the substance, mixed with air, is sufficient, then a source of ignition is needed to cause an explosion. Liquids (for example petrol and other fuels) and solvents from industrial products emit flammable vapours which, when mixed with air, can ignite or explode. At normal temperatures, flammable liquids can emit enough vapours to form combustible mixtures with air, heat, and often thick, black, and toxic clouds of smoke. The behaviour of a fuel-oxidant mixture is characterized by certain explosions parameters, including explosion limits, which characterize the range of concentrations in which combustion propagates at very high speeds. For this work were performed experimental determination of the lower explosion limit for two commercial gasoline samples.
