Stat-X® Fire Suppression System: Thermal Units

Stat-X® fire suppression systems with thermal operation are stand-alone units. Their own patented detection mechanism is incorporated, eliminating the need for separate detection, and releasing controls. With a Stat-X® thermal unit, you can provide installed fire suppression at a fraction of the cost of most engineered systems. The beauty of Stat-X thermal units is that the Stat-X unit functions as both the fire detector as well as the fire extinguisher. When the temperature at the generator reaches a fixed activation temperature, the generator activates flooding the protected space with Stat-X condensed aerosol, quickly suppressing the fire.

Because the Stat-X generator doubles as a fire detector, this eliminates the need for expensive control panels and the associated wiring and installation costs. And with the Stat-X agent being stored at its discharge point, there also is no agent tank or piping and thus none of the accompanying expense.

Stat-X thermally operated units are mounted as a single unit. These are one unit for one space. If a fire occurs in the protected space where a Stat-X thermal unit is mounted overhead, once the heat at the unit reaches a fixed activation temperature, the unit will discharge, suppressing the fire.

Upon activation, Stat-X condensed aerosol floods the space, interrupts the chemical chain reaction, and causes rapid flame collapse, thereby suppressing the fire. Furthermore, the agent remains suspended for several minutes to prevent reflash. Stat-X is rated for Class A (surface), B, and C fires, giving it almost universal application.

Stat-X thermal units are supplied in a variety of sizes to protect special hazard applications. These units are suitable for a broad range of applications in smaller enclosures. They are available in sizes ranging from 30 grams up to 1,000 grams.

In the event of a fire, Stat-X therma;;y activates generators can be activated via the integrated thermal detector.

Upon activation, the generators produce an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium based aerosol. Unlike gaseous systems, Stat-X aerosol generators are cost effective to install and maintain — as they do not require the pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation costs associated with other extinguishing systems.

Space and weight requirements are minimal and, in many applications, the small size of the Stat-X aerosol generators makes them the only viable option. On an agent weight basis, Stat-X aerosol is ten (10) times more effective than gaseous agent alternatives.

Fire suppression is rapidly achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals — terminating propagation of the fire.

Stat-X aerosol generators are virtually maintenance free and have a shelf life of over fifteen (15) years. This, coupled to their low installation cost, makes them an extremely cost effective fire protection solution.

Agent Container. The generator housing is constructed of exterior and interior stainless steel shells separated by an insulating material. The top and bottom of housing is stainless steel. The housing is sealed with a non-permeable membrane and incorporates a mechanical means to ensure rupture of the membrane upon activation. The housing is non-pressurized prior to system activation.

Finish. Brushed stainless steel.

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. The product has no ozone depletion potential and no global warming potential. Agent is approved for commercial sale by the US EPA.

Thermal Actuator. Unit shall be activated by means of a thermal actuation device rated 70°C/158°F, 95°C/203°F, or 123°C/254°F. The actuator is anodized aluminum or stainless steel.
