Gas Agent

Certified Company ISO 9001-2008

Why to choose a Gaseous Agent

Gaseous agents can be used in electrical application where there is potential for overheating and fire. They can used where wires maybe exposed as they are non-conductive and form a flooding effect reducing oxygen in an area. The performance of the gases are relative to the room or area they occupy. As an example, if there are high winds and air flow, a gas system needs to be designed to allow for this as performance of flooding can be affected. This includes large ventilation and ducting that may draw out the gases before they can become fully effective.

Main Features:

  • Zero ozone depletion potential
  • A global warming potential of less than one
  • Five-day atmospheric lifetime
  • A large margin of safety for occupied spaces
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Non-corrosive
  • Resistant to temperature changes

Classes of Fire:

  • Class A – Flammable combustible
  • Class B – Flammable liquids
  • Class C – Flammable gaseous substances
  • Electrical equipment under voltage

BlazeCut offer a range of Gaseous agents including HFC-227ea and FK-5-1-12

The Right Solution:

Effectiveness: our gaseous clean agents are known for their excellent fire suppression capabilities, It has a low heat of vaporisation, which means it can quickly absorb heat from the fire, suppressing it effectively.

Non-Damaging Properties: our gaseous clean agents are non-conductive, which means it won’t cause electrical damage to equipment. This is especially important in environments where electrical equipment is present.

Environmental: our gaseous clean agents are considered environmentally friendly due to its low global warming potential and short atmospheric lifetime. It’s not known to deplete the ozone layer. 

Regulatory Compliance: our designs all following standards NFPA 2001 (2021) and FM 4-9 (2018). These standards outline the requirements for clean agent fire suppression systems, including design concentrations and application guidelines. 

Safety: our gaseous clean agents are non-toxic and safe for occupied spaces. This is crucial, especially if the environment in question is one where personnel may be present during regular operations.

Compatibility with Equipment: our gaseous clean agents are compatible with the equipment and materials in the environment it is designed for. For example, it wont react with aluminium or any other materials present.

HFC-227ea

The HFC clean extinguishing agent is liquefied gas used for volume fire suppression. The HFC clean extinguishing agent is discharged as a stream of gas and liquid droplets that penetrate the fire area, ceasing the combustion process through heat absorption and chemical interaction. The HFC clean extinguishing agent is considered environmentally accepted substitute for Halon extinguishing agents harmful to the ozone layer used in the past.

Main Features:

  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Non-corrosive
  • Resistant to temperature changes
  • Safe for people
  • Leaves no residue
  • Does not damage equipment, objects or sensitive devices
  • Zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential)

Approvals

HFC-227ea: UL recognized and FM Approved

Application

The HFC clean extinguishing agent is an agent of choice for protection of enclosures where residue may be harmful to the protected sensitive devices. The agent is suitable for Class A (creating flames), Class B, Class C and electrical fires.

FK-5-1-12 Clean Agent

FK-5-1-12 Clean agent fluid is a next-generation halon and HFC replacement, designed to address concerns for human safety, performance and the environment. FK-5-1-12 clean agent is stored as a liquid; however, it turns into gas upon discharge. The FK 5-1-12 is a high performance gas which floods the area quickly and has the ability to remove the oxygen from the atmosphere causing the fire to be suppressed. The design of the fluid combines the key features of HFC gases with sustainable clean agent protection.

Main Feature:

  • Zero ODP (ozone depletion potential)
  • A global warming potential of less than one
  • A five-day atmospheric lifetime
  • A large margin of safety for occupied spaces

Approvals

UL recognized and FM approved

Application

As a clean agent, FK-5-1-12 leaves no residue and will not affect sensitive electronics and devices. It is an ideal choice for the environment due to significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The agent is suitable for Class A, Class B, Class C and Class E (electrical fires).
