Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications.
A lithium-ion battery or li-ion battery is a type of rechargeable battery in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging.
The deep-seated nature of battery fires creates extinguishing challenges for all extinguisher types.
Due to out gasing prior to and during ignition of the batteries, reflash is a potential hazard.
Unlike gas systems operating under high pressure seeking exit of the hazard area,
Stat-X aerosol operates at a low pressure and remaining in the environment to provide ongoing protection.
Gas systems will exit the hazard area through any unclose able openings. The Stat-X aerosol remains buoyant and allows for unclose able opening(s), whereas in high pressure gas systems the gas will exit rapidly.
Stat-X highly-advanced fire suppression technology offers the lightest, most compact and modular, and economical fire extinguishing solution available. Our Stat-X generator is an extremely rugged, hermetically sealed, stainless steel canister containing a stable, solid compound.
In the event of a fire, Stat-X units automatically release ultra-fine particles and propellant inert gasses which effectively extinguish fires using less mass of agent than any other conventional extinguishing system.
The Stat-X aerosol extinguishing product was tested for efficacy in suppressing Li-ion battery fires. It was found that the Stat-X agent successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program. Fireaway Inc. contracted with DNV GL for testing to have its Stat-X product line included in the program.
The following conclusions can be made from testing of Stat-X aerosol fire suppression system.
