Extinguishing agent

Given the wide and varied range of applications for Powertech products, you need to have a large selection of high quality extinguishing agents available. Thanks to our strong supplier partnerships, Powertech can offer a wide range of extinguishing agents.
Powertech recommends that you carefully select the right agent that is specifically suited to your risk, be it a class F wet chemical for kitchen applications or the electrically non-conductive, residue-free extinguishing agent for your server cabinet.
Below is a list of some of our extinguishing agents. You are also welcome to contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss your extinguishing agent options.

CLASS F WET CHEMICALS

Specially designed to tackle Class F hazards (Cooking Oils or Fats) the Class F Wet Chemical has special materials that react with hot burning oil to create a thick soapy heat resistant crust on top of the cooking oil surface.

Preventing the flammable vapours reacting with oxygen. It has the same quick flame knockdown as Dry Powder or Foam but Class F Wet Chemical has the advantage of the high heat resistant fire blanket.

extinguishing agent HFC-227EA

HFC-227ea, better known as FM-200 ™, is the most widely tested liquefiable agent of all time, an electrically non-conductive, odorless and colorless gas.

This offers minimal downtime due to no clean-up post discharge. It is stored liquid and introduced into the protected hazard as a clear colourless vapor. HFC-227ea leaves no residue and is suitable for occupied spaces. HFC-227ea has zero Ozone Depletion Potential.

Löschmittel FK-5-1-12

FK-5-1-12, besser bekannt als Novec™ 1230, ist ein fluoriertes Keton, das als Flüssigkeit gespeichert und als Gas abgegeben wird.

Es verteilt sich gleichmäßig in der gesamten Gefahrenzone und unterdrückt Feuer vor allem durch Wärmeabsorption aus der Flamme.
​Mit einem Ozonabbaupotential (ODP) von Null, einem globalen Erwärmungspotential (GWP) von nur einem und einer atmosphärischen Lebensdauer (ALT) von nur fünf Tagen, bietet Novec™ 1230 fluid eine umweltverträgliche Option bei der Brandbekämpfung. Mit einem niedrigen globalen Erwärmungspotential fällt Novec™ 1230 nicht unter die europäische F-Gas-Verordnung, die weitere Kontrollen zur Minimierung unerwünschter Emissionen und zur Registrierung der Verwendung vorschreibt.

DRY POWDER

Available in ABC, BC or D classifications, Dry Powder is an extremely effective firefighting medium and is utilised in areas where the introduction of water based protection is not ideal.

It is electrically non-conductive and therefore can safely protect your electrical hazards along with any Class A or B risks.

Foam

AFFF Foam (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) systems are used for areas where flammable liquids and/or plastics are handled and stored.

Foam works by the combined mechanisms of cooling, separating the flame/ignition source from the product surface, suppressing vapours and smothering. It can also secure for extended periods of time against reflash or reignition.
It can also protect against backflame or re-ignition over longer periods of time.
