  • The Gauge on my BlazeCut T series system is showing 0 (zero) pressure, is it ok?

    Due to physical and chemical properties of the agent, pressure in the tube can vary depending on the ambient temperature. The higher the ambient temperature, the higher pressure in the tube and vice versa. At very low temperatures, the pressure gauge can be seen near zero due to the low pressure of agent vapours. When checking the pressure gauge during or after a engine running the Gauge may be showing closer the the red zone. This is not a problem as long as your enclosure is not exceeding 105 degrees Celcius. The Indicator on the pressure gauge can vary from 0 bar (0 psi) when temperatures are very low to 17 bar (247 psi) when temperatures are very high. This is not a sign of defect in the system. See our video for the inspection of the T series for further details

  • Is the BlazeCut T series systems a replacement for a fire extinguisher in my vehicle?

    No, it is not a replacement to a fire extinguisher, You should have a fire extinguisher FIRST! Fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems are two different products. We always suggest you buy a quality fire extinguisher for your car, mounted within easy reach of the operator. Not only can you put out a fire in your car with a hand held fire extinguisher, you can use it to save some one else! Buy a BlazeCut for another layer of defence that works automatically and is on guard 24×7! Unlike a fire extinguisher, BlazeCut works without a person’s effort.

  • Can you use multiple or several T Series systems in one application?

    No only one BlazeCut T series system is to be installed to cover the enclosure. 2x 2m lengths is not the same as 1x 4m length, because if there was a fire then it is possible that only 1 of the 2m system would discharge and the gas volume would not be enough to suppress the fire.

  • How Long does the T Series system last?

    BlazeCut is a single use product that lasts up to 10 years depending on application and environment.

  • How does BlazeCut T series system work?

    The BlazeCut tube is heat sensitive. When it reaches a sustained 105 degrees Celsius, a hole is melted in the tube forming the nozzle and releasing the HFC-227ea. The extinguishing agent siphons heat from fire, disrupts the reaction of burning, slows this reaction and suppresses the fire. The amount of agent released into the enclosure is designed to exceed the amount required as per the minimum design concentrations according to NFPA 2001 : 2018 edition.
