Stat-X® Fixed System: Electrical Units for Ordinary Locations

Engineered fire suppression systems have consistently proven to be the most effective means of providing fire protection for a space. In these cases, the fire suppression agent has been carefully chosen and application rates and densities have been calculated. As long as the system is inspected and maintained, it should perform as expected and provide extinguishment or suppression in the event a fire occurs in the protected area.

A typical fire suppression system consists of the agent, a discharge mechanism, and some form of a fire detection system (such as smoke, flame, or heat detectors). The concept is simple—the fire detection system detects the presence of fire, and a signal is sent to the discharge mechanism resulting in release of the fire suppression agent.

The Stat-X® fire suppression agent can be deployed by a number of means. The most effective mode of discharge is via an installed total flooding system. The total flooding of a space with Stat-X rapidly suppresses 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.

When installed as part of an engineered fire suppression system, Stat-X electrical units are used. The Stat-X generators in this instance are actuated by an electrical signal sent from the alarm panel. Stat-X electrical units are supplied in a variety of sizes to protect special hazard applications. For example, 15-gram units can be used to protect small enclosures, all the way up to multiples of 2,500-gram units.

Stat-X is an advanced technology offering peerless firefighting capabilities gram for gram over gaseous or dry chemical agents. The rapid response of the Stat-X system quickly suppresses fires, thereby reducing damage and preventing uncontrolled fire spread.

Upon detection of a fire, Stat-X electric generators are operated automatically from a suitable listed releasing device. All auxiliary system components (release panel, detection, remote pull stations, etc.) are listed/approved by UL, ULC, FM, New York City MEA, and California State Fire Marshall.

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. On an agent weight basis, Stat-X aerosol is ten (10) times more effective than gaseous agent alternatives.

The Stat-X generator’s effectiveness is a function of its patented design, aerosol composition, and ultra-fine particle size. 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 service life of 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 and incorporate a 3/4″ NPT fitting to enable direct connection to conduit on our electrical units. 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. Units have passed salt spray corrosion testing per UL 2775 Standard as part of their listing.

Aerosol Agent. The 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.

Listing. Aerosol generators are listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories of Canada to UL 2775 Standard.

System. Extinguishing system is accomplished by means of distributed generating devices to ensure distribution of extinguishing aerosol throughout the protected volume. Devices are capable of being supervised.

Mounting. Generator devices shall be mounted by means of stainless steel bracketing that allows for directional adjustment through both vertical and horizontal plane.
