Now There is a Better Way to Suppress Fire!

Stat-X® fire suppression is an advanced aerosol technology that protects enclosed special hazards. Aerosols are an effective new alternative to traditional special hazard fire protection. Stat-X fire suppression is currently used worldwide in many critical applications. Stat-X aerosol fire suppression needs be considered when evaluating the use of halon substitutes, CO2, inert gas, dry chemical, or water mist. Stat-X fire suppression is an approved halon replacement and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) alternative.

Stat-X First Responder®

Suitable for:

The Stat-X First Responder® is an emergency fire suppression tool and should be included as part of your on board on hand response equipment. Stat-X First Responder excels at containing and suppressing small “early stage” fires in an enclosed space before it becomes unmanageable and requires a fire department with water. The use of water increases the damages, downtime, and the cost of recovery.

The Stat-X First Responder is a small, light, handheld unit with a pull actuator designed to be tossed into a room with an active fire to provide immediate fire suppression. It is an exceptional tool for energy companies for use in manhole fires and underground vaults.

When used by firefighters, it buys time for hose set-up, stops flashover, and it can provide an emergency egress route through a wall of flames. Used by police or the first responder on the scene, it can slow a fire long enough to allow fire departments to arrive.

The small size of the Stat-X First Responder makes it easily portable.

In the event of a fire, Stat-X First Responder units are activated by removing the safety clip and pulling the ring pin. The unit can then be thrown near the fire, where it will actuate following at least a 3.5 second time delay.

Upon activation, the Stat-X First Responder produces an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium based aerosol that provides extremely fast knockdown, and rapid suppression of fires.

On an agent weight basis, Stat-X aerosol is significantly more effective than other agent alternatives. It does not reduce the oxygen levels. Fire suppression is achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals — terminating propagation of the fire.

The agent will hang in suspension after delivery providing ongoing suppression capabilities.

Container. The unit housing is constructed of metal and incorporates insulating/cooling material. The discharge ports for agent release are located around the circumference of the housing. The housing shall accept a M228 initiator and shall be non-pressurized prior to system activation.

Initiator. The initiator complys with MIL specification DTL9235210 (modified for output charge) and is subject to 100% reliability testing by means of x-ray.

Safety. Units incorporate dual safety devices — a crimped safety pin requiring a twist motion prior to pulling the safety pin by means of a ring attachment. The initiator shall incorporate a minimum five second delay timer prior to activation.

Aerosol Agent. Aerosol generated is potassium based and manufacturer shall provide fifteen (15) minute time weighted average data from an independent United States laboratory demonstrating that the aerosol does not produce (at normal design concentrations) harmful levels of CO, CO2, and NOx based on NIOSH standards. Agent has no ozone depletion potential and no global warming potential. Agent is approved for commercial sale by the US EPA.

Dimensions. Unit contains 500 grams of aerosol forming composition and is 5.625 inches tall (6.875 including initiator mechanism) with a diameter of 3.188 inches. Total unit weight is < 2.7 lbs.

Origin. Units are manufactured in the U.S.A.

Coverage will be dependent on the specific characteristics of the situation encountered — class of fire, level of involvement, areas of potential leakage, etc. Tests have shown significant suppression effects up to an 8 ft high x 10 ft x 10 ft room — around twenty (20) cubic meters. More units would be required for a larger volume or spaces with excessive leakage. The aerosol flows and spreads rapidly throughout the volume, in a manner similar to a gas. However, since the aerosol is buoyant, more may be required in a high ceiling situation.

The Stat-X First Responder is most effective when thrown directly at or near the fire.
