RTI conducted an extensive analysis to determine how a fire in a deep fat fryer occurred and why the fixed fire suppression systems did not function efficiently to contain the fire. RTI inspected the physical evidence, which was stored for an extended period.
Cooking oil flashpoint and auto-ignition point tests were performed. RTI led the technical investigation of team experts.
RTI reconstructed the events and their effects in causing the fire and evaluated proper emergency procedures for the response to a fire of this nature.
An extensive evaluation of the fryer's operation and safety systems were performed.
RTI assisted the client in obtaining a very favorable settlement.
