Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems

Presented by John Brock

Fire Protection Engineering, VP Regional Sales

Fireaway, Inc.

The presentation will provide an overview of Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems, designed and listed to the requirements of NFPA 2010 “Standard for Fixed Aerosol Fire-Extinguishing Systems” (first published edition in 2006).  This space age technology was recognized on the US EPA SNAP List as a Halon 1301 replacement system as early as 1995, however this highly effective environmentally friendly fire suppression technology still remains little known by the fire protection industry today.  In 2008, UL published UL subject 2775 (now a standard), to category FWSA “Fixed Condensed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing System Units”, and several listed systems are now available on the market. 

The presentation will describe the technology, the mechanism by which it extinguishes flames, brief list of performance and qualification fire tests conducted by independent laboratories and agencies, and an overview of special hazard applications where this type of system is in actual use.  By the end of the presentation the meeting participants will have an appreciation of the technical and economic benefits of this technology compared with current fire suppression technologies, and an understanding why and how this technology has the potential to revolutionize current fire protection practices based on gaseous and water based flooding systems.

Please RSVP by September 24th
