Aero-K® is a new and highly effective data center fire suppression system. Regardless of whether or not wet sprinklers are in place, this system can operate independently to quench fires in data rooms that store vital information. The Aero-K® system utilizes a potassium-based aerosol spray as the quenching agent and is safe for data center use. The non-toxic, eco-friendly, substance effectively puts out fires upon contact without depleting oxygen or damaging sensitive data storage equipment.
If your firm is investigating how to best protect an Elevator Machine Room (EMR) with an elevator fire protection system, there are some interesting facts to consider. Regardless of the fire protection system – water sprinkler, dry chemical, clean agent systems, wet chemical systems, and CO2 systems – it may not be suitable in an elevator maintenance room that has slab penetration, which is the standard for traction elevator systems. The shaft is vented through the elevator maintenance room in older traction elevator EMRs.
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.
An Aero-K® System is best suited for computer and server room spaces because of its versatility, quick response, and effectiveness. Aero-K® is an aerosol spray technology which requires minimal space, is capable of expanding or reducing in size as room dimensions may change over time.
Containers come in all sizes and shapes, metal, nonmetallic, stacked or racked. Most unprotected container and storage areas are vulnerable to lightening strikes, electrical malfunctions and even arson attacks.
Aero-K® is an effective means of suppressing fires within numerous facilities that produce and store electricity. There are thousands of substations and transformers throughout the world that may need protection.
Enclosures that house electrical and or machinery may be properly protected by using the Aero-K® aerosol agent technology.
Depending on the fire hazard, Aero-K® Generators can be activated by smoke, heat and or manual intervention.

Whatever fire protection system, water sprinkler, dry chemical, wet chemical systems, clean agent systems, and CO2 Systems some may be inappropriate for use in an EMR with slab penetration such as is normal for a traction elevator system. In older traction elevator EMRs, the shaft is vented through the EMR.
Storage areas of hazmat materials or fluids are as endless as the rules and regulations that govern such storage. Without complete knowledge of what may be stored, quantities of stored items and acceptable locations of storage, hazmat protection may be confusing. For example, improper storage of a hazmat material located too close to a heat source may cause combustion, resulting in monetary damage, possible serious injury and even loose of life.
Each year there are thousands of Hotel, Motel, and Bed & Breakfast fires. Too often it results in loss of life and serious injury.
There is new technology offered by Peripheral Manufacturing Incorporated that can assist in the egress of trapped people and or animals. Until recently, when a fire occurred little or nothing could be done until the fire department arrived. Even the police are helpless in extinguishing a fire and sometimes risk their own lives by trying to rescue someone in a burning structure.
Marine safety should be paramount be it on a small motor boat, sail boat, fishing boat, or lager vessels like Cruise and container ships. Humans have one thing in common; there may be nowhere to go accept overboard when a fire gets out of control. In excess of 80% of fires can be prevented by the owners being proactive in preventing fires aboard a boat or ship. Over 50% of fires start with faulty wiring and portable devise like heaters and stoves. Even shore power can cause fire. Routinely inspect all wiring onboard, around gas connections, in engines, throughout the cabin and around the navigational equipment. Check for gas leaks and replace old tubing.
Mass transit vehicles include school buses, transit buses, Para transit vehicles, charter buses, and other private transport vehicles. Operational vehicles number around 800,000 on the road each day say the National Transportation Safety Board NTSB.
The Aero-K® is an aerosol spray technology that can quickly suppression a fire situation in mine fires originating from flames during welding operations, mobile equipment malfunctions, electrical shorts and friction.
Oil and Gas facilities are one of the most important industries that utilize many different types of fire suppression systems.
Lightening, static electricity, unprotected motors, generators, old wiring, complicated winding pipes and tubing all contribute to the challenges of providing proper fire protection. To complicate the matter even more, sabotage, terrorist attacks and other potential crimes increase the urgency to learn about and implement new fire suppression technologies.
As with most fire situations, rapid intervention proves to be most effective. The Aero-K® agent aerosol technology provides a quick effective means of suppressing fire.
An Aero-K® System is an excellent fire suppression solution when protecting remote enclosed areas such as telecommunication sites, traffic landlines and wireless communication towers. Telecommunications serve the world and assist in protecting and running Mission Critical Environments, Governmental Agencies plus day to day Business Communication.
Wind Turbines are becoming part of our landscape and environment. As research progresses Wind Turbines are becoming more efficient but there remains little anyone can do about the prevention of fires created by lighting, electrical, and accidental failure of parts and oil based lubricants. Up to 200 hundred gallons of lubricant can be up in the tower and as much as 500 gallons stored on the ground. Fires can easily spread from the tower to the ground and burn uncontrolled until someone notifies the local authorities. Repair or replacement of a Turbine can disrupt communities; cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, in man hours, mobile cranes, and heavy equipment.
