Hydrocarbon Fire Protection for Steel

Hydrocarbon fire is the general description for a fire fueled by oil and oil derivatives or natural gas. These are characterised by a very rapid temperature rise and because the fuel for the fire is liquid or gas more fuel may leak allowing long durations before the fuel is exhausted. If the fuel is at atmospheric pressure the resulting fire is referred to as a hydrocarbon pool fire, typically a pool of burning liquid. If however the fuel is under pressure, which is very common in the hydrocarbon processing industry, then a leak which is ignited would create a hydrocarbon jet fire.

Sherwin-Williams FIRETEX® M90 series of materials have been designed to provide fire and corrosion protection against the most aggressive hydrocarbon industry hazards.
