FE-13 Fire Suppression Systems

FE-13 Fire Suppression Systems are clean agent fire protection systems for special hazards.  FE-
13 fire suppression systems are clean, efficient, safe, and environmentally acceptable. The FE-
13 agent leaves no residue when discharged during a fire or non-fire situation and efficiently
suppresses fires through the process of physiochemical thermal transfer.  The FE-13 molecule
acts as a heat sponge and absorbs heat from the fire.

FE-13 is safe for use in occupied spaces with no exposure restrictions up to a concentration of
24%. It does not deplete stratospheric ozone, and has a sufficiently low atmospheric lifetime
that meets the US EPA specifications. FE-13's low boiling point and high vapor pressure
makes it useful for those applications requiring agent storage below 0°F and can be used in
low temperature applications (down to -40°F [-40°C]).  This is the lowest available system
temperature today, and is unmatched by any other clean agent.   FE-13 fire suppression
systems are also particularly suitable in cluttered hazards, and those with high ceilings. The
UL Listed maximum nozzle height of 25 feet is the highest available today.

FE-13 represents the ultimate in human-safe clean agent technology. These systems offer
the widest safety margin between use concentration and onset of exposure restrictions ever
seen and can provide effective protection at low temperatures without human exposure
issues when the hazard is at a high temperature.
