What are the Biomechanics of a Liquid Burn Injury?
So just how do you get burned in a liquid fire? Well, first off, the liquid does not catch on fire; it is the vapors from the flammable liquids that get ignited. Vapors that reach a certain temperature begin to emit a significant amount of vapors.
So this quickly results in a hazardous situation where the vapors can get ignited easily. When flammable liquids become ignited, they produce toxic smoke. So this is a corollary effect that comes from the chemicals contained in the fluid. The take away is that there is always a danger for the victim of smoke inhalation.
There are two classes of liquids that can be ignited:
- Flammable Liquids: This is a liquid chemical mixture. This combination produces vapors under the right conditions. They can get ignited, which is known as a flash point. One flammable liquid is gasoline. And it has a flash point that is below 100 degrees, where vapors ignite.
- Combustible Liquids: Liquids that can combust under the right circumstances of air mixing with the vapors. But the temperature needs to be above 100 degrees. One of the liquids in this class is diesel fuel. And when at above 100 degrees it can be a danger of combusting and causing a fire. Vapors emitted from flammable liquids fill air space. So rather than stay with the source of the liquid it flows out. So when there is an ignition source, it can cause a fire explosion or combust.
The ignition source for these types of flammable liquids can include:
- Cigarette Lighters.
- Electrical Switches.
- Electrical Heaters.
- Gas Appliance Pilot Lights.
Getting burnt and seared from flammable liquids can occur in the home and in the workplace. There are some industries that the employees are at high risk of burn injuries and toxic smoke inhalation. Usually, these are from flammable liquids.
