Stat-X fire suppression

April 2011 Fire & Safety, Products

Upon detection of a fire, Stat-X generators can be activated either manually or automatically from a suitable listed releasing device. Upon activation, the generators produce an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium-based aerosol.

Stat-X aerosol generators are very cost effective to install and maintain – as they do not require the pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation. Space and weight requirements are minimal. The Stat-X generator’s effectiveness is a function of its patented design, aerosol composition and ultra-fine particle size. Fire suppression is rapidly achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals – terminating propagation of the fire.

Stat-X aerosol generators are virtually maintenance free and have a service life of over 10 years. This, coupled to their very low installation cost, makes them an extremely cost effective fire protection solution.

Features

* Environmentally friendly – ozone depletion potential (ODP) = 0.

* Ease of installation. No pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation manpower.

* Listed for Class A, B, C fires by UL, ULC, CSIRO, ECB, and many others.

* Safe for personnel – non-harmful to personnel at design application rates.

* Safe for valuable equipment – will not harm electronic equipment or magnetic media.

* Post fire cleanup is minimal – aerosol suspends in air for quick and easy venting after discharge.
