Stat-X® fire suppression systems with thermal/manual operation are stand-alone units. Their own patented detection mechanism is incorporated, eliminating the need for separate detection, and releasing controls.
The thermal feature of Stat-X thermal/manual units provide the fire detection and automatic activation. The heat responsive element installed on the unit is preset to activate the unit when the ambient temperature reaches a fixed activation temperature. When this occurs, the affected unit discharges, filling the space with Stat-X condensed aerosol, quickly suppressing the fire. This is a single generator for one space.
On the manual override of the thermal/manual units, the units can also be activated manually by a cable pull that is installed under a protective cover at the entry to the space. If multiple units are installed, the cable pull, in most instances, activates one or more units creating a total flooding of the space with Stat-X condensed aerosol. The total flooding application of Stat-X quickly suppresses and extinguishes the fire. Further, the agent remains suspended for several minutes providing reflash protection.
These units are suitable for a broad range of special hazard 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 generators can be activated either manually or automatically 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 very 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 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 and is capable of both thermal and/or manual activation.
