FE-13 is one of the industry’s best replacements for Halon. (Halon 1301 was banned in 1993 because of its ozone depleting properties.) This unique agent provides its own source of propellant with a high vapor pressure. FE-13 helps to extinguish the fire by absorbing the heat and preventing further chemical reactions. It has a low toxicity and is safe for protecting areas where people are present and because it is a clean agent fire suppressant, it provides protection for valuable assets.
FE-13 can be used in cases that need total flood applications of fire suppressing agents, for example, a control room where people work and there is a significant amount of electronic components and equipment. Another application for FE-13 is the difficult Class-B fires, which include hard-to-extinguish fuels like methanol, gasoline, oil and grease.
FE-13 is a unique suppressant and can be used for a variety of different situations including larger areas. It is also recommended for areas that may or may not be “room temperature” and may be used where the temperature is warmer or colder.
