F-500 ENCAPSULATOR TECHNOLOGY EXTINGUISHER

 

COOLS AND CONTROLS

The F-500 Encapsulator Agent, when mixed with water, works by encapsulating a water-droplet

and enhancing its natural cooling effect. When directed at a lithium-ion battery fire it also provides a blanket to drastically reduce toxic smoke emissions.

STAY INFORMED

Due to the rising popularity of Li-ion batteries, it’s crucial that businesses and employees who commonly use products and devices powered by lithium-ion batteries understand the associated safety hazards as well as basic handling and storage guidelines to avoid workplace fires and injuries.

  • Water Base
  • Fluorine -Free
  • Bio-degradable

500 encapsulates the flammable electrolytes, rendering them non-flammable.

ENCAPSULATION

F-500 encapsulates the flammable electrolytes, rendering them non-flammable.

Encapsulator Technology doesn’t simply put a bandage on the issue at hand. By removing the flammability of the electrolyte and

encapsulating the fuel, F-500 drastically reduces the risk of reignition.

RAPID COOLING

F-500 droplets rapidly reduce heat

Independent testing has shown that F-500rapidly reduces temperature, effectively stopping thermal runaway. This is crucial during lithium-ion fires as every second counts. Each second lost could translate into more and more neighbouring cells rupturing, causing multiple explosions and putting lives on the line.

TOXIN REDUCTION

F-500 reduces toxins, including hydrogen fluoride.

This is especially important for lithium-ion fires as the battery’s vapors can be life threatening. When lithium-ion batteries burn, they emit toxic fluoride gasses. Testing shows that when F-500is used, these gasses are drastically reduced.

This is a water type fire extinguisher with the f-500 encapsulator agent.

This extinguisher has been manufactured and tested to Australian standard as AS/NZS 1841.2, and tested as per the requirement of AS1850 for class A, B and F fires. Extensive testing has been performed, and this encapsulator agent, performs exceptionally well against lithium-ion battery fires. We encourage you to discuss your individual fire needs with your fire service provider to ensure that you are covered for all fire risks. The 4L extinguisher has been tested to a li-ion battery fire with 2.4kwhbattery capacity, while the 9L extinguisher has been tested to a li-ion battery fire with 4.8kwh battery capacity. This extinguisher is not to be used on ac power (100vac or higher) electrical fires.
