How Stat-X Works

The Stat-X generators are self-contained, eliminating the need for expensive pressure vessels, piping, and installation manpower. This significantly reduces both initial installation and ongoing maintenance costs.

The fire triangle is a useful teaching tool, but fails to identify the 4th essential element of fire — the sustaining chemical reaction.

This led to development of the fire tetrahedron. Some fire suppression agents do not remove or reduce any of the 3 necessary components, but rather interfere with their chemical combination.

“Free Radicals”* are essential to the propagation of a fire — OH, H and O. Stat-X suppresses the fire primarily by chemical interference with these “free radicals” within the fire zone.

Potassium radicals (K) are the main active component of the Stat-X aerosol. These potassium radicals react with the radicals of the flame.

 

* Free radical — an uncharged molecule (typically highly reactive and short-lived) having an unpaired valence electron.

The ultra-fine aerosol flows like a gas, and extinguishes by chemical interference with the flame’s free radicals.

Because of its ultra-fine partical size, the aerosol hangs in suspension for up to 60 minutes, and it can be vented by fan or air-handling system after discharge.
