What temperatures and duration causes a low temperature burn?


An experiment revealed that the lowest temperature and time to cause a burn were 111°F (44°C) and six hours, respectively. Other data showed that the time until a burn develops was half a minute per 1.8°F (1°C) increase in the range between 111°F – 123.8°F (44°C to 51°C). Based on the data, a six-minute exposure at 122°F (50 °C) will cause a low temperature burn.
