The Extinguishing Agent Of The Future For:
· Total Flooding
· Internal
· Local/Streaming
· Portable

All FirePro® Fire Extinguishing Aerosol Generators use the latest generation of the stable SBK aerosol forming solid compound (containing no pyrotechnic substances).
*(It does not contain pyrotechnic materials such as nitro-guanidine or nitro-cellulose).

Upon activation the solid compound is transformed into a rapidly expanding, highly efficient and highly effective fire extinguishing aerosol, based on Potassium salts.

Aerosol Main Characteristics
High efficiency and effectiveness than other conventional agents:


O.D.P = 0 (Ozone Deletion Potential)
A.L.T = 0 (Atmospheric Life Time)
G.W.P = 0 (Global Warning Potential)
Non- Corrosive
Non- toxic

Autonomous and Automatic there is no need of external electrical or pressure supply (but are compatible to any conventional alarm/ detection system).

Non-pressurised containers.

Space and weight saving.

Activated electrically, thermally, manually or in combination of any two.

Suitable for A, B, C classes of fire.
(In class A fires it is important to operate the extinguishing system at the earliest possible time)

The coolant used is a natural mineral that does not contain pyrotechnic material. There is no danger of blockage of the outlet that can lead to the generator exploding.

Subject to negligible maintenance costs compared to that associated with other conventional systems.

Its built-in fail-safe activation system ensures operation of the generators when required, even if everything else fails.

The solid compound does not contain pyrotechnic materials therefore it is more stable to
temperature fluctuations and has a significantly longer operation life-time.

Conventional fire extinguishing agents use the following methods to extinguish fire:
· Suffocation method (depletion of oxygen levels in air below 15% at normal pressures extinguishes fire)
· Cooling method (heat absorption)
· Removal of fuel

FirePro® aerosol on the other hand, extinguishes fire by inhibiting the chain chemical reactions present in combustion on a molecular level.
It removes the flame free radicals and extinguishes fire without depleting oxygen.
In a typical fire, atoms and fragments of unstable free radicals react between them in the presence of oxygen. This continues until the burning fuel is depleted or the fire is extinguished by other means.
On activation of the FirePro® Aerosol Generator its solid compound is transformed into an aerosol
consisting mainly of Potassium salts (e.g. K2CO3) H2O, N2 and CO2..
The gas type 3D properties of the aerosol particles facilitate their even and fast distribution as well as their flow into the natural convection currents of combustion.The solid particles of Potassium salts a few microns in size, suspended in an inert gas, display an extremely high surface to reaction mass ratio -
increasing efficiency and reducing the quantity of material required.
When the aerosol reaches and reacts with the flame, Potassium radicals (K*) are formed mainly from the disassociation of Potassium salts e.g. K2CO3.
The K* bind to other flame free radicals (hydroxyls) forming stable products such as KOH. This action extinguishes fire without having to deplete oxygen.
