Aero-K® is a condensed aerosol fire suppression extinction similar to gaseous fire suppression or dry chemical fire extinction. Condensed aerosols are defined by the National Fire Protection Association as releasing finely divided solids of less than 10 micrometers in diameter. Thus they can remain airborne significantly longer and leave less residue than dry chemical agents. It may even be effective for a flair up.
Aero-K® is total flooding agent and is effective regardless of the location and height of the fire, within the confines of the room. Aero-K® can be delivered by electrical operation, mechanical, or a combination.
There are no environmental issues associated with the use of Aero-K® generators. Both Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) are ZERO.How It Works
Aero-K® systems may be installed in a NON-permanent configuration to allow easy dismounting and movement to another location.
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.
The small size of the First Responder makes it easily portable. In the event of a fire, First Responder units are activated by removing the safety clip and pulling the ring pin.
Ceiling mounted in the middle of the hazard area, heat detection of fire by a U.L./U.L.C./FM Fast Response sprinkler bulb at 155˚F, 175˚F, or 200˚F to initiate agent deployment.
Aero-K® condensed aerosol fire suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. This includes in-building, containerized, and in-cabinet applications.
Peripheral, Inc., a 43-year-old firm, markets a unique state of the art fire suppression product called Aero-K®. Peripheral is the North American Distributor for the Aero-K line. Aero-K is patented, NFPA 2010 Compliant and UL/ULC listed. Aero-K a potassium-based aerosol is 100% green, non-oxygen depleting and is EPA SNAP Listed as an alternative to Halon 1301 with zero Global Warming Potential (GWP), zero Atmospheric Lifetime (ALT) and zero Ozone depletion Potential (ODP).
Twelve years ago, Peripheral reviewed numerous fire suppression technologies and after a thorough evaluation selected Aero-K based on it fire suppression efficiency and environmentally friendly qualities. With Aero-K there is no need for agent distribution networks of nozzle or tubing, no bulky tanks, no valuable floor space is used, and no room integrity tests are required. Unlike gaseous suppression the protected area is not required to be completely sealed. Because of its design Aero-K® can be easily modified and or moved to a different location or adjusted for changes to the protected space. Aero-K® is electrically actuated, can use various types of smoke and thermal detection devices and is cross listed for use with many common fire alarm and releasing panels. Aero-K® generators come in different sizes which makes system design and configuration easy.
Aero-K®, a state of the art product, is used to protect data centers, electrical rooms and cabinets, wind turbines, wireless towers, battery storage containers and facilities, and motorized boats and vehicles.
