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.
