This paper presents an overview of the fire and smoke threat to naval vessels and the measures that can be taken to counter the threat. In the confined space of a naval vessel, the damage to men and equipment from the heat, smoke, and toxic gases generated by a fire can occur rapidly. Once the fire has been extinguished, restoring the affected ship systems and cleansing the atmosphere can compromise the mission of the ship. The long-term effect of corrosive gases on electronic equipment adds to the maintenance burden on the ship and the refit facility. This paper will provide suggestions and procedures to reduce the potential for fire damage to naval vessels through the use of improved anti-sweat pipe insulation materials.
