Halotron® I is a proven clean extinguishing agent effective on a wide range of fires. These include class A (ordinary combustibles, wood, paper, rubber, plastics, cloth), class B (involving flammable liquids, greases, oils, paints, solvents, alcohols, flammable gases, etc.), and class C (involving energized electrical equipment). Since it is a clean agent, it does not leave a residue after application, and therefore minimal or no collateral damage occurs from the agent itself to equipment and other assets in the area where it is employed. This is in contrast to dry chemical agents such as mono-ammonium phosphate (MAP), and potassium bicarbonate which generate volumes of fine particle dust that have to be cleaned up and that can be corrosive.
Halotron® I is intended for use in areas formerly protected by Halon 1211 hand portable extinguishers such as computer rooms, telecommunications facilities, clean rooms, data storage areas, offices (for protection of sensitive electronic equipment), boats and vehicles.
Advantages of Halotron® I | Fast Facts
- The Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of Halotron® I is almost zero (0.0098). Halotron® I also has a low Global Warming Potential (GWP) and has relatively low toxicity.
- Halotron® I is A-B-C rated, UL listed in multiple major OEM hardware in the U.S. and elsewhere. It is discharged as a rapidly evaporating liquid and maintains a liquid physical state at elevated temperatures.
- Halotron® I is a clean agent and will not leave residue or cause corrosive damage such as dry chemical agents.
- Tested and approved throughout the world, with distribution in over 15 countries.
- Since 1995, Halotron® I has been FAA approved for airport ramp fire protection and it is in use at more than 90 commercial airports on Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicles.
- Halotron® I extinguishers do not require hydrostatic shell testing as frequently as carbon dioxide and in some cases, dry chemical.
- U.S. EPA approved since 1994 under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program.
- Throw range – 6 ft. to 45 ft. (1.8 m to 13.7 m).
