Fire Suppression Systems


Due to their fast response time, low fire extinguishing concentration, and environmental safety, Aero-K® fire suppression systems may be used in critical applications across a wide range of industries. Upon activation, the generators produce an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium based aerosol. Unlike gaseous systems, Aero-K® aerosol generators are very cost effective to install and maintain as they do not require the pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation costs associated with other extinguishing systems.

Applications

Due to their fast response time, low fire extinguishing concentration, and environmental safety, Aero-K® fire suppression systems may be used in critical applications across a wide range of industries. Aerosol generators are suitable for use in:

  • Electronic cabinets
  • Switchgear enclosures
  • CNC machines
  • Data processing equipment
  • Printing equipment

  • Flammable liquid storage
  • Hazmat storage
  • Marine engine rooms and machinery spaces
  • Small boats
  • High value mobile equipment


Operation / Description

Upon detection of a fire, Aero-K® generators can be activated either manually or automatically from a suitable listed releasing device. All auxiliary system components (release panel, detection, remote pull stations, etc.) are listed/approved by UL, ULC, FM, New York City MEA, and California State Fire Marshall. Upon activation, the generators produce an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium based aerosol. Unlike gaseous systems, Aero-K® aerosol generators are very cost effective to install and maintain – as they do not require the pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation costs associated with other extinguishing systems. Space and weight requirements are minimal. On an agent weight basis, Aero-K® aerosol is ten times more effective than gaseous agent alternatives. The Aero-K® 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. Aero-K® 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.

Aero-K® Costs Less to Maintain

An Aero-K® system consists of a control panel, detection, and a series of aerosol generators. Inspection consists of visually inspecting each generator and checking continuity via the control panel. Aero-K® generators are warranted for 18 months from date of installation and have a shelf life of over ten years. This fire suppression system can be easily removed and reconfigured for re-installation or upgrade in the event of facility re-location or expansion.

Aero-K® aerosol generators require as little as 10% of the agent required by some other fire-suppression systems. This chart shows the number of grams of suppression agent required for every 35.5 cubic feet of coverage, for four different systems. As you can see, Aero-K® is a fraction of the others!

  • Significantly more effective than alternative extinguishing agents
  • Environmentally friendly – Ozone depletion potential (ODP) = 0 – No global warming potential
  • Ease of installation – no pressure vessels, piping, or expensive installation manpower
  • Very low maintenance
  • Provides reliable, cost effective protection for a wide range of fire hazards
  • No power required – activates thermally or manually
  • Favorably reviewed by EPA for SNAP listing
  • 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
  • Compact – up to a 90% reduction in space and weight requirements
