Abstract: The literature review and findings of the Tau Tona accident report (Department of Minerals and Energy 1999), identified a single possible scenario whereby a HFC134a/lubricant/air mixture may become explosive. The mechanism involved the escape of HFC134a/lubricant past the over heated bearing surfaces of a failing compressor. Experimentation that realistically replicated the likely scenario was used to explore this possibility.
