Here are a few “Quick Facts” on Energy Storage Fire Suppression
Li-ion and other industrial scale batteries can represent a significant fire hazard through overheating, igniting combustibles or triggering a thermal runaway event.
Stat-X® aerosol fire suppression systems have demonstrated excellent results in minimizing thermal runaway propagation and suppression of resultant fires within ESS structures and containers.
Proven performance through testing in multiple battery configurations, appropriate for Class A (surface), B, and C hazards.
Simple yet robust and elegant design. No floor space is required for Stat-X canisters, and the units are completely non-pressurized as installed.
Activation of the Stat-X units can be initiated through an electrical signal (control panel with smoke or heat detection) or thermal actuator (no external power is required).
Inspection and maintenance of Stat-X units is straightforward and budget-friendly.
Stat-X systems are approved for normally occupied spaces through the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP list).
Stat-X micro-particles tend to ‘float’ and stay airborne, at the appropriate design density typically for 45-60 min, far greater than gaseous agents.
Aerosol from the discharge of Stat-X systems is environmentally friendly, with zero OPD, zero GWP, and negligible atmospheric lifetime.
ESS fires are a real threat for operations personnel and first responders; Stat-X systems are the most cost-effective strategy to protect ESS containers and facilities against fire and should be part of your NFPA 855 compliant Emergency Operations Plan (EOP).
