Halotron Fire Suppression Agent
Halotron is an exceptional fire suppression agent for several reasons. First, it is a clean agent, meaning that it does not leave any residue or damage to sensitive electronic equipment or other valuable assets, which is a significant advantage compared to other fire suppression agents like water or foam. Second, Halotron is non-conductive and non-corrosive, making it safe to use in areas with live electrical equipment, as it does not conduct electricity or damage the equipment. Third, Halotron has a low global warming potential and ozone depletion potential, which makes it an environmentally friendly option for fire suppression. Additionally, Halotron is highly effective in extinguishing class A, B or C fires and has a rapid extinguishing time, which can significantly reduce the potential damage caused by a fire. Overall, Halotron’s unique characteristics make it a highly efficient and effective fire suppression agent that is suitable for a wide range of applications.
