This is a great educational eBook on Fire & Life Safety produced by Consulting-Specifying Engineer. It is their Summer Edition. It covers condensed aerosol fire suppression, which is a superior product for enclosed special hazards.
Aerosol fire suppression technology is an accepted fire suppression solution throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East and it is now gaining greater attention with fire protection engineers and safety professionals in the Americas. These fire suppression professionals are recognizing the value of aerosol suppression for use in protecting enclosed special hazards.
Stat-X® fire suppression is different, unlike conventional water mist or pressurized agent systems, each generator, upon activation, produces an ultra-fine fire suppressing aerosol. This cutting-edge technology is more effective, on an agent weight basis, than any other fire suppression agent.
NFPA 2010: Standard for Fixed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing Systems and UL 2775: Fixed Aerosol Extinguishing Systems Units govern its use in a wide variety of applications. Fireaway’s Stat-X technology is listed by the USA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a total flooding system for use in normally occupied and unoccupied areas under its Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program. It is environmentally friendly with zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), zero Global Warming Potential (GWP), and zero Atmospheric Lifetime (ALT). Stat-X agent is not subject to future bans like currently specified halocarbon agents. Stat-X particulates will remain in suspension for up to an hour providing prolonged effective fire suppression prior to venting. Stat-X is not to be confused with clean agents as defined in the NFPA 2001 standard.
Stat-X is approved for extinguishment of Class A (surface), B, and C fire hazards. Stat-X protects enclosed special hazards such as: energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS), diesel generator rooms, gas turbine enclosures, wind turbines, switch gear rooms, vehicle engine bays, heavy lifting and handling equipment, machinery spaces, CNC machines, flammable liquid storage, electric rooms & cabinets, pharmaceutical plants, and other commercial and industrial areas.
