How to deal with a lithium battery fire

Lithium battery fire extinguishing plan

When it happensLithium battery fireWhen it is necessary to carry out fire fighting solutions, let us take a look at the highly recommended plan:

1. If there is a small fire accident and the flame does not rush to part of the high-voltage battery, carbon dioxide or ABC powder fire extinguishers can be used to extinguish the fire.

2. In the case of a complete fire inspection, there is no need to touch all high-voltage components, and special tools for the insulation layer should be used to carry out the inspection from beginning to end.

3. If the high-voltage battery is bent, distorted, or destroyed in a fire accident, in short, it will not look more and more, or the suspected battery will have problems. Then the water demand for fire fighting should not be too small, and there must be sufficient fire water.

4. The battery fire is likely to be completely wiped out within 24 hours. The use of thermal imaging surveillance cameras can ensure that the high-voltage battery is completely cooled before the safety incident is completed. If there is no thermal imaging surveillance camera, you must monitor whether the battery will burn again. Smoking indicates that the battery is still very hot, and supervision has to be maintained until at least one hour after the battery is no longer smoking.

Fire safety guidance for pure electric vehicles: If the battery reaches a sufficiently high temperature and leaks and releases the electrolyte solution, the lithium battery electrolyte must be flammable and explosive. This requires a lot of water to cool the battery and extinguish fires. Because the AC power and communication system software does not have a grounding device, firefighters can safely use tap water as a key fire extinguishing agent, and there is no risk of electric shock. ABC powder fire extinguisher is not easy to extinguish battery flames. Firefighters should prevent direct internal contact in the fire extinguishing or getting rid of all high-voltage components in actual operation, which may potentially cause high-voltage electric shocks.

To sum up, lithium batteries use a lot of water to extinguish fires. Long-term time and care must be taken. Temperature reduction is very important. Lithium batteries are not flammable and explosive. Under normal circumstances, explosion accidents are not prone to occur.
