The Premier Fire Fighting
Halon is a colorless, odorless, nontoxic, gas.
Halon is fast acting -
it cools the surface and chemically interferes with the combustion
This nontoxic gas is attracted to heat, moves around barriers and
tracks to a fire.
Halon blankets the fire area and reduces the risk of flashback.
Halon is clean and evaporates completely, it's non-staining,
non-corrosive and nonconductive.
Halon will not damage any
surface, including electronics, fabrics and painted
Halon is effective for A, B, and C type fires.
Effective on chemical fires & flammable liquids.
Fire extinguishers are
rugged, all metal, re-useable, and rechargeable.
Units are compact, lightweight and easy to operate
providing maximum visibility during discharge.
Upright squeeze grip operation.
All metal valve
Large, easy to read pressure gauges.
Low temperature operation to -65° F.
Reclaimed Halon 1211
is returned to original MIL Specification
Uses all recycled gas
in accordance with the Montreal Protocol
Extinguishers are available in red or chrome.
Halon units are
available in several sizes, including the 2.5 pound size - the size required
by organizations for events, including most racing organizations and the
Fire extinguishers are covered by a
1 year manufacturers warranty.
Made in the USA
Halon 1211 Furnishes maximum effectiveness in these
primary application areas:
Computer rooms - data
distribution and transmission facilities
Museums, hospitals and
General commercial and
Oil production, refining and
chemical processing plants
Process equipment control
marine, air, bus, automotive, and general transit systems
Record storage areas
Class A Fires -- Tests show Halon-charged portables to be more effective
than those containing other Class A agents. Halon works quickly and
effectively because, in addition to cooling and smothering a fire, it
chemically interferes with the combustion process.
-- UL ratings obtained with Halon 1211 indicate it is very effective on most
hydrocarbon fuels, hydraulic fluids and many flammable chemicals such as vinyl
chloride. Pound for pound, Halon is three times as effective as CO2.
-- Halon 1211 is electrically non-conductive in test up to 110,000 volts.
Standardized use of Halon extinguishers eliminates the inadvertent use of
water on an electrical fire. Halon leaves no mess behind to clean up
Most Halon-charged portables have an effective range of 9 to 15 feet. This
allows the operator to stay at a safe distance from the fire.
The Halon Advantage
process of combustion is the chemical reaction of oxygen, fuel, and heat. Water
extinguishes a fire by cooling. CO2 extinguishes fire by smothering which
removes oxygen. Halon cools and smothers a fire, but it also chemically
interferes with the combustion process by breaking up its complex chemical
reaction. This chemical interference is the reason Halon works so quickly and
effectively on fires.
pressure in Halon charged portables is 100-195 psi. This low pressure allows
units to be made of mild steel or aluminum. The lighter weight makes the units
easier to handle in a fire emergency. For example, an equivalently
rated CO2 unit
weighs 4 times as much as a Halon unit.
clean because the gas evaporates completely. There is no residue to cause
damage. No clean up is required except for the damage actually caused by the
fire. Halon is safe for the protection of high-value equipment such as computer
The liquid/vapor discharge of Halon flows around obstructions to reach
tough-to-get-at-fires. Halon vapor blankets the immediate fire area and reduces
the possibility of flashback.
No Guessing. Since extinguishers containing 9lbs or more of Halon are ABC
rated, the operator need not choose between extinguishers in an emergency. Halon
units can replace CO2 and water combinations as well as many dry chemical units.
